Believe in the magic of Christmas

well here I am wishing you all a Happy festive time...with one more of the 12 tags for Linda's 12 tags of Christmas....I have now made all the tags , halo duly polished...but this will be my last crafty offering until 31 December, as I sign off from crafty blogland and spend some much looked forward to time with my family...

I also want to take this time to thank all my followers and all those who have stopped by and left such lovely comments and supported me this year..so 
All the details of linda's 12 tags can be found here and it is sponsored by the funkie junkie boutique, Linda's fab online shop....here is linda's tag #9 and here is mine below...

I started by creating an inky background and the added some white embossed snowflakes and some white embossing to edge the tag ( a #10 tag from Linda's boutique ).

To complete the background I added some flourishes stamped , then embossed with sticky embossing powder and sprinkled with... rock candy distress glitter..

I am so not a glitter person but I just love the frosty finish this creates... I added some cheesecloth and then added a reindeer painted white with picket fence distress paint, then coated with glue and seal and more glitter.

Next inspired by Linda's cluster of three flowers, I added 3 flowers created using the tattered floral die and I also added pine fronds, as linda...but coated with...yes you guessed rock candy distress glitter...not that I am hooked or anything..

To complete I added some stars (idea-ology)...some dyed seam binding and more idea-ology 

and a word band..

I am linking this up to Linda's 12 tags of Christmas here .

so I will leave you ...hoping for lots of magic in your household...I certainly have 3 excited children ..hoping that some magic will come their way ...so lets hope our magic Santa sprinkles do the trick!

may your hearts be full and happy x
