CCC#24, SSSS a Holiday Greeting, Vicki's Here Comes Santa!

CCC#24 is being hit with a Brick Wall out of the new issue of the Technique Junkies newsletter. Linda has us playing with Rock Candy Stickles and I think we are probably all loving it. It is not very easy to capture in a photo all of the subtle sparkle. I think I have mentioned before how amazing Linda is to devote so much of her time taking us on a new adventure every week! Ok, well every two weeks during the Holidays, which is just fine with me! Thanks again Linda, you rock there candy girl! Simon Says Stamp and Show wants a Holiday Greeting and that is sure easy enough! Vicki's challenge is Twas the Night Before ... & Here Comes Santa and there is a prize, so add your link for a chance to win!  We are also linking this up to the Artist Stamper for the Christmas challenge.
The Santa and snowflake images are Stampin Up. I used these free Christmas printable tickets from Miss CutiePie. Cut each one out and shaded around the edges and layered on cardstock, then cut with my new Tim Holtz Tag die. My grout lines are gold embossed. Added a few gems and goodies along the way.

Your visits and comments are always appreciated, especially this time of year when we are all so busy! Have a wonderful rest of the week!

I like your tag-very interesting idea to put on a tag. I hope you like the technique I submitted to TJN. I like the fact that the bricks are made from printed paper. Thanks so much for entering the challenge at the Cheerful Stamp Pad.

Merry Christmas, sweetie! You're so sweet, and for the record, YOU rock!

I love, LOVE this tag, Terry, The collaged ticket design is BRILLIANT! What an ingenious use of the tag die, and how cool that you used gold embossing to create the grout lines! Every little detail is beautiful.

I hope you have the best Christmas ever! :-)
