Tags for Christmas

The Holidays are quickly approaching and as usual I am caught off guard. I have dozens of things to do before Thanksgiving and haven't even approached the thought of Christmas (which is just around the corner).  This year my husband and I will be hosting our first ever Thanksgiving meal at our house.  This has got me a little bit frazzled because I have never in my life cooked a turkey.  But there is always a first time for everything, and my husband has done it several times so hopefully with his expertise we will be able to pull it off.
Since my week has been so busy, I started crafting on a smaller canvas this week.  Tags are such a fun way to create little mini masterpieces in half the time of regular full sized cards.
I added some crepe paper to create the effect of a candy wrapper on the peppermint.

I had so much fun making "gingerbread cards" a few weeks ago that I decided to make some matching tags. I love how cute this little guy is :)

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you all have fun this holiday season....
Love 
Elizabeth
