Tag, You're It At Meljen's Designs

Happy Thursday! It has been a really busy, overwhelming week or three LOL The good news is that I will finally get to apply for a new job soon. It is the job that I have been doing for the past 2 years along with my regular job. I'll be happy when I can apply and get the job. It will be nice to not be doing two jobs! I'll just keep my fingers crossed that it happens soon.

It has been rainy, rainy and wait... some more rain! for our weather... which means we really haven't done anything. It's just too wet and humid! Yuck! Alright... I'm off to work soon!! Enjoy the rest of your week!!

This is challenge #168 at Meljens Designs and for this challenge we have Tag, You're It! So, make a tag or include a tag on your project. I added a tag to my card and here is what I came up with:

I used North Pole Critters for this image. I colored the image with Copic. I used a Snow Marker for the snow piles. I added stitching around the outside with gold thread. I added Diamond Glaze on the ball at the top of the pole. I stamped the Season's Greetings from a Paper Smooches Stamp Set and used embossing powder on it. I used an edge punch to cut the edge of the red paper layered on the top and on the inside. On the outside I added gems to the edge of the punch.All of the papers were My Mind's Eye. The ribbon is from my stash.

Holly - G03, G07, G09
Berries and Pole - R22, R24, R27, R29
Ears, Cheeks, Paws - R20, R22
Rabbit - E31, E34, E35, E37, E59
Hat - R22, R24, R27, R29
