LTD Challenge & Day 23 of my Tag-a-thon!

I can hardly believe i've managed to post a tag every day this month..
What on earth am i gonna do after christmas! lol
Here are todays offerings
The tree's were created using the bit i had left over from cutting trees from Tim's day 6 tag, worked like a stencil. With a smidge of tumbled glass for the sky, a bit of colouring with my copics on some of the trees and some snow white dabber to create the snow i found it made the perfect winter scene, finished off with some tattered leaves just to give the tag some texture/dimension.
Again with this tag I used up the scrap templates i had made {not having the dies yet}, also from the day 6's tag, I stamped one deer with music and distress embossed the other. To cover that fact i cut one of the deers in half i stamped a load of holly on another tag and cut them out, and placed them down one side over the deer to create the illusion of him sitting behind it. I finished it with a distress embossed greeting and a ton of peeled paint distress stickles.
And finally i thought i'd join in with this weeks Lots To Do 'Share your favorite card' challenge
My favorite card of 2010 has to be...
This was the card i made my OH for his birthday back in June, I know it may not look like anything special, but it was the first time i had tried friendly plastic in a mold, and i just love how it turned out.
So it's Christmas Eve tomorrow, Just where did the year go!
I'll be back tomorrow for another tag share but if this is your last visit to my blog b4 christmas i would just like to wish you a very Happy Christmas, and thank you for supporting me and my blog by visiting xx
It means the world to me.
♥ HUGZ ♥

Beautiful tags. Especially like the deer. Thanks for visiting Katemade Designs WOYWW post, the ink pads are in a DVD holder that IKEA used to sell. I think I got the last 4 the store had. Wish I had one more but we do what we can with what we have right.

Happy Christmas
