It's the 25th, which means that there is one month left until Christmas!
Have you started your shopping yet?
(I am thrilled to say that I got mine done last week, thanks to Amazon. :) )
It also means that today is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. :)
This month's challenge is "snow".
And while my hope had been to make the snow-themed ornaments
that I'm making for my Christmas place-settings this year, time was not on my side.
But, since I still wanted to participate in the hop, I decided to share Day 8 of my
Advent Calendar Tag & coordinating card, since they are both snow-themed.
(I was inspired to create a new Advent Calendar this year.
I've made 24 numbered tags that I'm displaying on an old window that will hang on my kitchen wall.
For each tag, I also have a card to share that I made, inspired by the tag.
(You can see my previous tags & cards here.))
For Day 8's tag, I used my Shaker Shapes: Square dies with
one of the PTI's Tinsel & Tags kit dies.
I diecut my "8" using PTI's Book Print Number dies.
I used the same patterned paper & MIM Tinsel & Tags dies for my card.
For my card though, I used the Shaker Shapes: Circle dies.
I stamped my sentiment using Mama Elephant's Season's Greetings stamp set.
And, before I go, Sage also has a card to share that she made for the hop.
It was her friend's birthday, so Sage made this card for her.
She stamped the squirrel (from PTI's Nuts for You stamp set) and diecut him
with the coordinating die, before colouring him in.
The scarf is from Simon Says Stamp's Stylish Simon, the sentiment is SSS, as well, which
I helped her stamp in Versamark and heat emboss in white.
Sage used Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Border 1 Die to create the snowbanks.
I drew the present by hand. ;)
Sage is also linking her card up to Emily Leiphart's Squirrelfest Challenge & Giveaway.
Thanks for looking!
