Tag 8 @ 12 Weeks of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style

Mornings folks :) 

Wow!  This place has been rather busy of late! 
I like it! Means I have been getting Mojo-vated and crafty!

It is time for another tag to catch up with 

Today I am catching up with tag #8!
This tag, really ... stumped me with what to do! 

Linda's tag has minimal embellishments and is very 'old classic' vintage with the selection of traditional images she used and even the colors.  

Right ... so how did I sum that all up?  Minimal embellishments, traditional image and try for an 'authentic vintage look' - yes I did just say minimal embellishments! OMG!
Ok, so my tag is vastly different to Linda's!  But that is the beauty of taking inspiration and adding your own style, quirkiness and individuality to things. Linda's tag is pretty, but the colors, just were not my colors today :(

I raided my Kaiser Rubons for the Peace sentiment on the tag and added a little jingle bell beaded decal too. 

In my collection of stamps I grabbed the sleigh silhouette.  This would have to be the most vintage Christmas stamp I own!  And for the background I used the a script stamp from my stash.

Besides a good distress to the edges with TH Distress inks and my craft knife, there really is not much else to this tag.  I do adore it though and hope to get a chance to sit down on the weekend and making a few more of these as they are that quick and simple and I know they will look magical under my tree! 

As you know, I am playing along for a chance to win a voucher to
My wish / want / have to have list just keeps on growing every-time I go peak in that store!

By my count now, I only have tag 9 to go to be up todate!
So, I'm off to play again!

Thanks for sailing in to see me today :)
