25 Days of Christmas Tags: Bonus Day 26!


This is it, really - the FINAL day of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags! Yes, Day 26 of the 25 Days is here. And so today, we are welcoming our bonus day guest and sponsor, My Favorite Things


I went full-on cute for my tags today. Here's my first one: 


This sitting bear is the perfect size for a tag! And since I knew I wanted to use BEARing gifts sentiment, I gave him a little pail of fishy presents. I like the way the white bear pops on the kraft base. 


This second and last (at least for a few days, LOL!) tag might just be my favourite of the month! 


His face! Perfect for the precipitous angle of the mountain he's trying to snowboard down! Since I do a lot of things in red, I gave him a green hat and scarf, just for variety. His board is a stylin', ombré blue. Stay Cool seemed like just the right sentiment for this little guy! 


And yes, I have one final card for Day 26, as well. To give you an indication of how well I work ahead, I decided to design my card around the MFT Sketch Challenge that came out at noon my time yesterday. :D


The trio of circles seemed perfect for some Bitty Bears! I stayed very close to the sketch, possibly because after almost a month of daily making, it was nice to have something preplanned for me. :D Simple colouring, and a circle to match each colour. I tried them on their corresponding circle, but they looked much better on different ones. As I didn't want just a plain main panel, I experimented with some patterned papers, but then remembered this foiled piece that I made recently but didn't use. It added some shine and interest to the design, as did some sparkle marker on the Santa hat and the present. 


I hope you've enjoyed this 2020 tag extravaganza! BIG thanks to Tracey for her hard work organizing this event and keeping it running smoothly. More thanks go to our generous sponsors! And to all of you, for your comments, views, and so much tag-making. The link-up on the tag main post will be open for a few more days, so you still have time to get inspired and make more tags. If you've liked what you've seen here, I hope you'll visit again some time!

That's exactly what my face would look like coming down a hill that angle. Yikes! All of these are so cute. Love the polar bear with his pail of goodies. [Bunny]

Fantastic tags, love the look on the penguin's face and I love those two colours together. I'm not a downhill anything so I would look like that too. The polar bear is adorable especially on Kraft. The card is super cute and a great take on the sketch.
