9th Day of Advent

Thinking about today's post while I was trying to warm myself up at 3.30am, I realised that I am very lucky really, as I have an infinite number of "things" I can use to make artwork for you to enjoy ( hopefully!). Most of the time when I get new product in, I snaffle one away for myself, and if I find time, I play with it.
With this in mind, I thought that for the BIG Christmas Day giveaway, I would let the winner choose whatever they liked from the website up to £25.00  and get it all for FREE! I now have to work out how to give the winner a gift voucher!! For those of you worried how you might get topost on Christmas Day, I shall run the post for at least a couple of days to give you time to post or become a follower if you are not already.
Now down to business...Today's winner is Melanie
Congratulations! and please email me your snail mail address. I am sure that some of you are wondering what the blog candy is? I have sent printed twill, stamps, and today it may be something completely different, all in the element of surprise ....
Todays tag is on a similar vein to the others I have done. This time I used the yellow and orange distress inks, and the words from Christmas Greetings 2 and the Santa from Victorian Christmas 2. The embellishment came from a Woolies ornament that I cut up and coloured with alcohol inks. I also gently used the Ranger Opaque white pen to colour his beard and pipe smoke, and outline the words.
Hope you like, and now off to create more from my pile of stash.. Good Luck in the draw, and keep posting.

Love this tag - and what a refreshing change from the red and greens that are appearing on lots of blogs. Not that I do not like red and green - its just wonderful to see such an original and still Christmassey tag.

I love the fact that you have used some 'recycled' bits of a Woolies ornament - and haven't relied totally on bougt items - lovely lateral thinking

I love the colors, a wonderful change from the typical red and green colors for Christmas. I love when we can recycle what we already have into a project.

I posted you on my blog again, and added your ornament to my side bar so everyone will remember to go there.

thank Jennie,

Deb
