Holiday Diva Dare-Day 4

Good morning Verve peeps, it is Teresa and I bringing to you my project for the Diva Dare.  We are taking a break from the Diva Dare after today until Monday November 28; to give everyone time with their families.  I hope your Thanksgiving is filled with lots of love.

For those of you that are new to this challenge, here is how it works...following each release, we will post a theme that we dare you with, and you'll have two weeks to complete the challenge. During those two weeks, the release team will post their creations and tell you how they answered the dare!

This month's theme is A Handmade Christmas! The theme is pretty broad and can be interpreted in so many different ways...from a lovingly made card, to heartfelt gifts and homemade decorations!  With the Holidays right around the corner, this will be the perfect time to get a jump start on your card and gift making!

So, we DARE you to make a Handmade Christmas card or gift!
I answered the dare with Christmas tags to add to my special Christmas gift wrapping this year.  Half the fun for me is the wrapping, I am using kraft paper, with red, and creams.  
Here is a close up of the tag.  My first gift wrapped for the season is for my MIL, I usually have her gifts ready to go before any others.  The to:/from: is from the O Christmas Tree set.


Here is a photos of a few more of the tags; I have used stitching, buttons, and my beloved glass glitter.  The snowflakes are from the Glad Tidings set and I used the new Snowflake Tidings Die set to cut the snowflakes.  I cannot wait to see what you create!
