Christmas Tag, Fir Trees, Woodgrain

My unofficial title for this tag is 'left over surprise'!
Because I had a surprise when I found out an extra day had snuck its way into 

So...  feeling very tired but not wanting to be defeated, I took a look at the tags for inspiration and chose one that meant I could use bits left over from other projects.
I'm not sure I had it in me that day to start a tag from scratch!

Here's my last tag for this challenge...

As you can see when you look at the tag below, I took the Tree with the Wood Panel background quite literally for my design project.

Supplies Used:

Sizzix/Holtz Framelits 'Tag Collection'
Impression Obsession 'Fir Trees'
Poppystamps 'Oval Frame background'

Martha Stewart/All Over The Page 'Aspen Flurry'

Altenew Woodgrain Bark Paper
Acrylic Paint - White
Bells - Silver and Gold
Ribbon - Red

It has been a huge accomplishment for me to do this - one tag for each day of the challenge.
To some of you I know this may come easily, but I'm still learning...
I'm hoping it gets easier and easier with time!

...  And if you've stuck by me through this marathon of tags I have nothing but a huge, heartfelt 'Thank You' to give to you.
Your kindness, support and feedback is always appreciated...
and it generally brings a smile to my day  :)
