Advent Calendar Tag & Coordinating Card, Days 18 & 19

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 18's tag, I used some Pink Paislee patterned paper,
which I die-cut using my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tag die.
For my card, I used another piece of Pink Paislee patterned paper & some red and white cardstock,
which I die-cut using PTI's Shaker Shapes: Square dies.

I stamped my sentiment using Mama Elephant's Season's Greetings stamp set.
For Day 19's tag, I used my PTI stitched rectangle frame die that came
with the MIM Sprinkles & Shakers kit, with some Teresa Collins patterned paper.
For my coordinating card, I used some Pink Paislee patterned paper
(which also had a deer on it!), which I diecut using PTI's Journaling 1 die.
I layered the diecut over a second one and added some PTI rustic cream button twine
Thanks for looking!

So cute, Leigh! Your tags and matching cards are so fun! I love the reindeer, and love the snowy house paper, too, and the stitched tag and frame dies look fabulous here. Loving the scalloped frame layer, too!
