Welcome back to the final week of the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style. It's been another fun run this year with my annual challenge but it's now coming to an end. At this very busy time of year, my final tag this season is another quickie. I actually had another tag partially made but when I sat down to finish it last night, I couldn't find the die I needed for the focal point. My dies go back and forth from The Funkie Junkie Boutique to my home craft space because we use them at the shop to cut die cuts for our thank you gifts. I wanted that dove die from a year or so ago and darn it, I searched high and low and couldn't find it.
At that point, I needed to start from the beginning again and sat at my craft table waiting for inspiration to hit. Perusing the discarded bits and pieces strewn around the perimeters of my table, I plucked one here and another there and soon had a pile of options. I grabbed a sheet of kraft core paper from this year's Christmas Stash pad, glued it over top of a jumbo manila tag and sanded the edges. Then I laid out all the rejected elements I had rescued until I was pleased with the array. It was all quickly glued down and in about 15 minutes I had a completed tag! Not my most original piece, but a fun tag with a pleasing retro vibe.
So that's a wrap, my friends. Thank you all for visiting and a most hearty thanks to all who played along this year. If you are participating in the challenge, you have until midnight Eastern Time on December 29th to link up your submissions. If you are participating, please review the challenge requirements found in my Week #1 post. Before awarding the gift certificates and the 10% off January coupons, I do check to make sure all requirements were met. It is very important that each post is linked back to this blog and also to The Funkie Junkie Boutique (www.thefunkiejunkie.com).
Wishing you all a blessed Advent season, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
