12 Tags of Christmas - Day 7

Day 7 and had to change around T!ms tag today
So here is my day 7 tag.
I could have used the same Santa as on day 3 but as I have a feeling there might be another Santa on T!ms tags before we reach the end I decided to try something else and used this wonderful stamp that Laura generously sent me.........I have to thank her so much because I had got in the doldrums and I don't think I would have even attempted to enter the Craft Stamper competition if her amazing goodies had not kick started my creativity off must go and visit.....she's a star!!

Stamps used were Stampers Anonymous, Inkadinkadoo and Paperartsy.......I masked the focal portion of the very large stamp and basically the rest is like T!ms except I tried some distress emboss (not paint dabber) for the swirls in scattered straw and reverted to the colourway that my day 5 tag should have been i.e. shades of brown and red.........before I could stop myself I had daubed some green on and it was too late then to go back!! LOL......believe it or not I did stamp a music stamp on the top portion but it seems to have faded into the other inks and I had already rescued this a couple of times so did not want to ruin it entirely by trying again!! Stamped the Paperartsy word stamp on the ribbon.......added a bit of raffia as I did not like the harsh line where the main stamp ended.......and the metal star is AMM.....finally a touch of diamond glitter glue on the rays and around the head of baby Jesus and a tad of distress glitter glue antique linen on the halo.

I'm not a religious person....but I do class myself as spiritual.........and whilst I love Christmas it is easy to forget why we are celebrating sometimes.........I think this will fill that gap in my 12 tags perfectly and the more of the tags I do the more I feel there is some sort of Kismet behind it all!!

Thanks for looking and happy stamping
