Distress Christmas Tags

Evening Chicks!

I see that Blogger is letting me post again!  Woo Hoo!  Thank you to all of my friends who checked in to see if I was still alive and prayers that I get better.  I didnt, and never will get better but the larger dose of daily drugs is making it a bit more bearable.

Okay... now to the tags! 

I purchased the Tim Holtz pointsettia die last week and pulled it out the other night after my brain was wanting to do some experimenting.  The pieces were punched out of cream cardstock and everything was gone over with Distress inks.  I have the recipe below.

Here is a closer view of the leaves...

Here is the recipe!

Tim Holtz Dies - Flourish and Pointsettia
Background stamp - Hero Arts Christmas music (Also used on the leaves)
Inks - Distress Iced Spruce, Festive Berries, Fired Brick, Evergreen Bough, Honey, Gathered Twigs
Liquid Pearls - Ruby Red, Buttercup
Embossing Powders - Ranger Clear and Silver
Snowflake - WalMart - $2.99 pack of 20 in the ornament section

Thanks for looking!

P.S. I didn't realize you had such a terrible time with arthritis. I am so sorry to hear that, but glad that your meds help alleviate some of the pain!
