25 Days of Christmas Tags -- Red Gingham Tags

I managed to make two tags this morning before I had to run a bunch of errands and go to the grocery store.  Let's just say making these tags was WAY more fun than running errands and grocery shopping.  ;)   I have to tell you a funny story about these tags.  Newton's Nook is the sponsor for day 5 at 25 Days of Christmas Tags so I wanted to use stamps by them.  They have new Christmas stamps and I placed an order for a couple of stamp sets (and a CUTE stencil) last week.   I was wishing they were here when I started designing because I didn't have but one Christmas set by Newton's Nook.  Looking through my sets I saw Newton's Nook unicorns and thought "peppermint kisses and mistletoe wishes" sounded like something a unicorn would say (IF a unicorn could talk....wink).  So I went to work....and before I finished the unicorn tag, my hubby brought the mail home.  AND my Newton's Nook stamp order was I HAD to make another quick tag with the sheep and "fleece Navidad" sentiment.  I couldn't get over what a lucky mail day it was and how fast my order had been shipped....WIN, WIN!  ;)  For day five, I was inspired by Zsofia Molnar's tag.  I was drawn to the red gingham paper with snow mounds at the bottom of her tags.  I did a major happy dance when I found the red gingham paper in my stash (from a My Favorite Things paper pad of gingham).  Thanks for visiting today and stop often this month as I join in at the fun at 25 Days of Christmas Tags.  I'm linking these tags up at:
