I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

So excited to share today that my guest is Kay Miller of My Joyful Moments!

I am sure that you know Kay, her gorgeous card designs and the way that she uses die cuts is always perfection.  If you are not familiar with her then you must check out her blog, it's full of eye candy! 

Here is the tag she created for us today...


Head over to her blog to see this in more detail and for another chance to win one of the prizes.

An ornament tag for today, perfect for a gift tag and also perfect for your tree!
I used the ornament shaker dies from Papertrey Inc for my tag, but it is not a shaker and does not have foam between the layers. I used a the Simon Says Stamps Falling Snow stencil and white embossing paste for the background layer. I had to trim my die cut scene slightly to fit behind the oval opening on the ornament.

I have had a few people ask why there has not been many tags with To and From on the front of the tags, I usually put them on the back.

Seems to me that diecuts are the top "go-to" options for tag making this year, and with such a wonderful assortment of new dies, it's no wonder! Love Kay's deer tag - super sweet! Your tag, Tracey, has some lovely details - the holly top, the stitching, etc. - also sweet!
