Tags, Day 9

Today seemed like a particularly good day to ignore the world and make some cards and tags. How fortunate, then, that there is another day of fun inspiration at the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. I started with Melania Deasy's trio of adorable penguin tags. I coloured and cut out enough little penguins to make two tags! 

I too used cute little penguins, double sentiments and tags sponged at the bottom. 
If you hang out here at all, you may be thinking... hey, Tracey had a sweater-wearing critter today! Where's that inspiration??? Well, right until I went to make another tag, I was planning to break out a sweater-wearing reindeer. Then at the last second, I went in a different direction: 

How about a long-johns-wearing moose? It's usually hard to out-CAS Tracey, but here I managed it with a one-layer watercoloured tag. 
Oh look, no cards again today. Oops...

I like the inking on the bottom of the tags and they really are a cute little gang of penguins. However, my heart has been stolen by the long-johns-wearing moose. How could it not be? What a dude!!
