Winter Tag

This week's Tag Tuesday prompt is Winter Landscape.  

We got five or six inches of snow last night.  We are expecting up to eight more inches by Sunday.
A Vintage Winter Landscape indeed.

The dh took this photo looking out his 3rd floor library (man cave) across our backyard to our garage a block away.  Sometimes that walk is like being on an ice skating pond!

I'm entering this digital hybrid tag in:

CHNC Challenge Extra for January 2014:  Anything Goes--as long as its Christmas--this will make a lovely tag on one of next year's packages.  (See my earlier post about making gift tags all year long)

Frilly and Funky: New Year's Resolution
(If you recall in that aforementioned earlier post, I also said I would dig out all those supplies I've been collecting and actually use them.  In this instance, it was Tim's tattered poinsettia die.  (Those puppies are too expensive to have them just sit in a drawer.)  Of course, there is the other resolution I mentioned above about making gift tags.

Our Creative Corner:  No More Shopping Sins:   I am a paper hoarder AKA paperholic.  I used on this tag very old Christmas papers.  Why am I still hanging onto them?  I even placed the tag on some old paper to take the photo!  They need to get used up so that I can go buy more!!!!
