Tag Tuesday Colors of Christmas

A quick little post today... lots to do, of course. ;)  The challenge this week at Tag Tuesday is to use the Christmas Colors of Navy, Turquoise, and Red.  This was a fun one once I found my little feature image that I received in a swap, which happened to have the required colors in it already.  I glittered it up and framed it with a Tattered Angels frame that I had sponged with Chipped Sapphire distress ink.  The snowflake border is cut with a Martha Stewart punch, and the stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms.  A little bling, a little Broken China and Antique Linen distress ink, some soft velvety ribbon that I got in the same swap... and a frosty little Christmas tag was born.

I hope all my American friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I don't do black Friday, so hopefully I'll get some time to craft after my dinner settles, LOL!  Thanks to everyone who follows, comments, shares, inspires, visits..... I am so grateful for all my crafty, blogland friends!
