Merry Christmas for SCD

Hi all! We are still making tags over at Something Completely Different and this prompt from Carol - "Merry Christmas" - had me singing this song....

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping at your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.
They know that Santa's on his way -
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And ev'rymother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.
and so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times,
Many ways:
"Merry Christmas to you".

All the various words were stamped in one of three colours...Impress chocolate....Archival sepia or coffee with a couple stamped in Adirondack lettuce for a little contrast.
The background colour is DI wild honey and brushed corduroy inked on a sheet and sprayed with Perfect Pearls Pearl spray.....that is such a yummy combination I just had to do it again after I used it on my 9th tag of Christmas with T!m! :)
....stamped the circular motif on a piece of Crafty Individuals paper and mounted this on some tissue paper that had been stamped with an Artistic Stamper script stamp.

Head over to Something Completely Different to see what the fabulous teamies on the DT have made this week.
Hope to see you there! ;)

Thanks for looking.....and Happy Stamping! :)
xoxo Sioux

P.S. This is the last challenge for this year........Wow! Just where did that year go!
Don't worry though....we will be back in the New Year with more fun stuff to challenge us all! :)
Be there...or be square! ;)
