Day 7–Jolly BLogger–Smeared and Smudged Ink

Four calling birds

Welcome back to the Jolly Blog 12 Days of Christmas Blog hop! Be sure to check out the fabulous work each of the bloggers have for you by following the links to the right OR start at
Today I have a tag again. The base is a manila shipping tag, 2 3/8″ by 4 3/4″, to which I adhered cardstock from DCWV The Christmas Combo stack and trimmed to fit. I edged it with Archival Ink–Sepia. I also used this ink to stamp the REJOICE sentiment from  Studio G/Hampton Art. The birds are a digi stamp from Beccy (find it here: ) in her 12 Days of Christmas series. I colored them with Bic Mark It markers and fussy cut the results. The halo is traced with Distress Stickles and all was adhered with my ATG gun. Hope you like it and that your day is happy! Happy Crafting, P!

PS. Be sure to check out the updates for the Santa/Father Christmas tag post ;). We had a power outage on Sunday that threw everything out of whack! Bless the AEP fellows and their families that shared them with us to get us back to warm and electrified!
