FTTC Altered Christmas

Hi there! How's your week so far?  So far so good here. Hoping the week speeds right by and the weekend gets here quick.

It's Timeless Tuesday time and Amanda is our hostess this week. She's challenging us to make an altered Christmas project (a gift, a treat item, a decoration, a banner, etc.).  I decided to make a gift tag:


I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from Trimmed With Love onto kraft CS with Versafine onyx black ink and then sponged some white craft ink around it (something I saw my friend Dawn Easton do and I just had to try it...makes it look snowy, huh?).  The moss green seam binding, kraft jute string, classic ivory CS (scallop border and snowflake) and the Echo Park This and That DP are all from the Flourishes store.

Be sure to stop by the Timeless Tuesday blog for all the details of the challenge and, of course, you can find even more inspiration by hopping around to see what the rest of the FTTC girls have created for you....
