If you're looking for this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge, then you're in the right place!!

At the SSS Blog this week, we are to use a TAG or create a TAG - whatever grabs ya! The Design Team is showcasing; "dies"   Simon Says Stamp Store sells a huge range of dies, all shapes, sizes and brands ! If you have any dies, we would love to see them in your TAG creations too, but its not necessary to join in with our challenge this week.

Here is my TAG take....

Can ya' see my tags?  heheh
I dont actually have Tags on my creation, (hope that's ok), but I used the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Tags Three dies to create  hanging Ornaments. What-do-ya-think??  I also used the Spellbinders Snowflakes Create A Flake Three Dies to decorate the tops of these GOLDEN ornaments. With all this shiny GOLD, they actually turned quite sparkly IRL, but I couldnt really capture all that fancy glitz sparkle on camera for you! 

Stamps: NONE
PAPER: GOLD Metallic Textured CS, Golden Striped DP, White heavy CS
Accessories: Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Tags Three dies, Spellbinders Snowflakes Create A Flake Three dies, Gold Braided Ribbon, Lace, Gold sewn Ribbon, Gold Cording, Pizzazz Aplenty Shiny Gold flat-back Pearls, Bridal Gold Pearl Brads

Everybody Art --- Christmas Card

 I want to leave with another great Quote of Thanks by Author:Albert Schweitzer
To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude, means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude.

Always be thankful for the little things!
