A Little Christmas Time!

Yes, I wanted to do Halloween!  It took every once of strength to keep me away from all the ghoulish thoughts, but I decided to go ahead with Christmas for CC2 #24 and Tim's "October - 12 Tags of 2012."  That lovely lady at Studio L-3 has us hitting the bottles again for technique #24, Alcohol Resist!  OK, Alcohol Ink Resist on page 59!  I used this technique on both the tag and card.  Out of respect to Tim, we can only tell you how fun these challenges are and to get the book!   Last week I was the lucky winner of Linda's CC2 #23 package of goodies provided by Mario!  How exciting is that?  Big thank you again, Linda!  That lady surely does rock! 
I did a tag for Tim's challenge and a card for Linda's!  For Tim's tag, I pretty much followed his instructions, but changed up the theme and colors.  The edges of the tags were inked with the Silver dabber paint, as were the ornament tops.  For the card, I followed the instructions on page 52.  The background was embossed and then I ran a white craft ink pad over the top and clear embossed. 
Currently at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, all seasonal Stampers Anonymous stamps are an additional 15% off through Thursday, so take a look!  Don't forget that Linda already has prices marked below MSRP, so this is a real treat!

Hi Terry, Love these, like the idea of the heat embossing on the embossed card, bet it gives a lovely texture.
