Challenge: 12 Tags of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style

While I was working on my Christmas tag triptych last week I decided I wanted to go ahead and make it a 12 tag project.  It occurred to me that this would be an opportunity to have some fun and also to get to know some of my readers.  So I have cooked up this 12 week challenge and invite everyone to play along. Here are the deets (rules, if you will):
  • This is an inspiration challenge.  Each week, I will post my tag and you will use it to be inspired to make something.  You can enter any sort of craft.  It can be a tag, a card, a home decor project, a scrapbook layout - your choice.  
  • You must take inspiration from something on my tag and tell us in your post what inspired you.  You don't have to use my style, my layout, my colors, my theme or anything except be inspired by something on my sample.  Your make can be shabby, it can be grungy or it can be clean and simple.  I don't mind if you CASE my work, but if you do, please give me credit.  
  • We will have 12 weekly challenges beginning today, Wednesday, September 7th.  You can link your project using the linky provided.  If you don't have a blog, you can use another hosting site such as SplitCoast Stampers or PhotoBucket, but you must link back to this challenge and tell us what inspired you.   Be sure to mention this challenge in your blog post, tell us what inspired you and provide a link to the weekly challenge.
  • All 12 challenges will remain open until December 15th.  You can play any challenge up through that date.  At the end, I will do a drawing for a random grand prize winner.  To be eligible to win, you must have submitted an entry into all 12 weeks of this challenge by midnight Eastern Time December 15th.  The prize will be the winner's choice of one of my art pieces/cards or a $25 shopping spree in my Etsy Shop.  
Please let me know if you have any questions.  I hope you will join in the fun.  Can't wait to see what you make.

This is probably a dumb question by what is a "Christmas tag triptych"?

That is a beautiful tag, Linda.
