TSG135 - Last Minute Tags

I'm late!  SOOOO late for this challenge from There She Goes!  I had really, REALLY wanted to post this on Monday, but since I took the challenge a little bit too literally and waited until the last minute to make them, I, uh, well, I didn't get them done until today!  Such a slacker.  Who is with me in Slacker Land?  I hope I'm not all alone here.

Jessica has challenged us to make a set of gift tags and I LOVE making tags, so this challenge was a blast. 

I am sorry for the weird photo - these little cuties don't stand up on their tippy toe.  This year, some of the kiddos are doing a Secret Santa gift exchange, so I thought it would be fun to do up little Santa tags for them.  I stamped the Santa from Hohoho in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored him with copics.  The tag is cut from a Labels 4 Spellbinders die and then I added some Winter Park papers from Echo Park.  A little ribbon, a little twine, a little Liquid Pearls and voila!  So much fun and pretty quick to make.  The coloring took a while, but it was worth it. 

Here's a single tag for you to see - all that patterned paper in the group shot made my eyes a little dizzy.  Me likes!  I added a little Snickerdoodle Smooch to Santa's belt buckle.  Very cool!

Want to join in all the fun and enter your tags for a chance to win a TSG gift certificate?  Hop on over to the TSG Blog and add the URL to your fabulous tags and the winner will be announced on Monday. 

Have fun and thanks for stopping by!
