No peeking


My friend, Tracey McNeely is hosting a wonderful series on her blog: 25 Days of Christmas Tags. 
I was very excited when she asked me to join in on the fun!

I decided to make a tag using the technique that Maile Belles shared on her blog recently,
where she layered her tag over a second tag cut from patterned paper.


I stamped and paper-pieced the present and cat from Simon Says Stamp Happy Meowday.
The patterned paper is Pink Paislee & the tag is PTI's Tag Sale #5.
The sentiment is from Mama Elephant's No Peeking set.
The twine is Lawn Fawn.

Be sure to hop on over to Tracey's blog to see the tag that she made today.

I'm also linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes.

Thanks for looking!
