The Garden Gate

 DD2 took this photo on December 25 of our White Christmas.

Gingersnap Creations:  GC84 Color Challenge: Snow, Pine, and Mahogany (I'm a DT Ginger, so this is just for inspiration as I didn't make a sample earlier for the challenge reveal)

Simply Scrapping Crafts December 24 Color Challenge
White, Red, Green, and use a tag

Pages In Time Thursday Sketch for Dec. 23 by Suepup:
To match the papers, I wanted to use the flower I made at a Prairie Stampers Club meeting and the cute reindeer buttons that I found in my Christmas stocking. The challenge called for a tag, and before I knew it, I was using the techniques from Tag 7 of Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas. 
Materials:
Making Memories 12x12 Diecut Glit MiniDot Red Mistletoe
Three Bugs In A Rug 12x12 Snow Much Fun (plain backside of Santa's elves)
Reindeer from Walmart trim
Tag diecut from Prairie Art Stamps store
Wood Grain Sissex die from Tim Holtz
Tim's grungeboard flourishes
Ranger Distress Inks:  Weathered Wood, Shabby Shutters and Pumice Stone
Maya Road leaf stick pins
Rock Candy Stickles
Pearl Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber
antique BINGO marker
flower made by me
the ribbon and Santa are from my stash and no longer identifiable by manufacturer

Love all of your projects, so lovely! I looked all over the tag for the little deer stocking stuffer items and then realized it was on the Garden Gate! Yes, it is painful to be at times!
