 The special stamp set we have for you this month is: "Holiday Tag"
The mini stamp set we have for you this month is:
"Nature's Brushstrokes"


Today's Primitive Farm set has such a cute house and tree in it so it is those elements I have used on my projects.

My first simple card uses the tree with Memento inks sponged and then stamped.  The decorative corner element is made from a Spellbinders Die


My second card uses the cute house again with Memento inks.  The paper strip is Basic Grey (been in my stash a while) and the stripes beside it were done with Memento pens - my Sakura ones were playing hard  ball. The birds are from Scenic Selections.


 My last item is some Christmas tags with rather a lot of added Stickles - air travel doesn't agree with it!  I used the Holiday Tag set with the tree and a Spellbinders die. I haven't added ribbon yet as I am unsure whether to punch the tag and add it there or use the hole in the die shape. I put a punched white tag on the back to write on.

 
Thanks so much for coming by.

  6. Beautiful projects!!!! Love the gorgeous bg you created on the first one and the corner is so much fun! Love the houses in a row. What a great job using a marker on the edges of the DP. I would never have gotten them straight (hands too shaky!) LOVE the tags! Oh my they are cute!!!! I think I would put the ribbon through the die cut hole and maybe a small embellishment where the printed tag hole is. A small button or even a star? (just my 2 cents) :)
