The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge

Salutations! The Funkie Junkie is doing a 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge. I love making tags so I thought I would join in. Since the challenge is open until December 15th I'm starting from the first tag.  Linda makes a tag and you find inspiration from it and make it your own.  Her first tag has a vintage Santa and a calendar. I have those stamps (Tim Holtz) so I decided to make my tag using those elements too.

I added a photograph of my brother when he was little sitting on Santa's lap. The background was made with Crafters Workshop templates including the bricks.

If you take a closer look at the picture you will see that Santa is trying to take my brother's gun out of his holster! Too funny!


I can't believe I made anything Christmas this early! Why don't you give it a try. It's a fun challenge! You know you want to!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Go Create and Be Extraordinary!

  1. Oh my goodness, your tag is just too adorable. What a classic photo of your brother to cherish! I love how you worked it into the tag along with the Santa stamp and Dec. calendar. Super cute tag with a wonderful vintage flavor.

    Welcome to the 12 tags challenge. I'm thrilled that you have decided to join in with us! Can't wait to see what you come up with for the next one!

    Hugs,

  2. Great tag, Karen! Love that picture of your brother & Santa. That tag would make a great addition to a scrapbook page about your brother & Christmas. :)
