Merry Christmas Cracker

In the last couple of years since I have been blogging and playing in challenges I have really learned to branch out in my Christmas colors. I'm usually the red, green, and gold color scheme, but I'm learning. Pink and Green ?, but what really dolls it up for me are the sparkly $ Store fibers, I do love a little bit of sparkly at Christmas. Oh, yes, my hubby wants me to tell all--this started life as a toilet roll :-)
Supplies: toilet roll recycled, Papers: DCWV-The Christmas Stack(year before last), Stampin Up-Pear Pizzazz, Stamps: Stampin Up-Bells & Boughs, Ink: Stampin Up-Cherry Cobbler, Kiwi Kiss, VersaMark, Stampin Up clear embossing powder, Stampin Up-Pear Pizzazz marker, Sakura Gelly Roll Pen-Silver and White,  ribbons unknown, $ Store fibers, Coluzzle tag template, Fiskars shape cutter template-Tags-1, We R Memory Keepers-Ex. Lg. Eyelets, Scor Tape.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥

You turned a toilet paper roll into pure holiday magic ... I love that sweet little layered tag ... and those fibers are off-the-charts fun ... fantastic! ... thanks for joining our jingle belle journey.

Nothing wrong with a bit of recycling/upcycling! This came out really adorable, I love the fibers too - make the fun colors even more party-ish (it makes sense when I thought it, not so much as I type it) - but it means I like it a lot!

Love the colours Beverly and all the sparkle. Trust a man to want you to mention the toilet humour! Your tag just sets this off beautifully.

Hi Beverly, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment. I got kinda burnt out on the Christmas cards, but I'm loving that pink & green! Great job!
