Poinsettia Christmas Tags

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Our weather here yesterday & today is gorgeous! 
Last evening we decided to leave the bikes parked in the garage and take a hike instead at Lake Redman. The lake was calm & peaceful. It was a nice hike other than the swarms of gnats that were close to the waters edge.

Tonight we will probably do another hike on a different trail which is fine by me. I like switching things up!

So, yesterday I shared a sunflower card that was made with the Two Tags Bigz Die. Today I have a pack of gift tags made for Christmas that I used the same tag and Woodgrain stamp on. I love these!

I used the Reason for the Season stamp set & coordinating Festive Flower Punch for these. I stamped up enough petals to make 20 poinsettia's and that's no easy feat but the outcome is always very rewarding! These are gorgeous! My saying comes from the Lots of Joy stamp set that is retired. The center has gold beads in them that I am not sure where they came from....I want to say the Dollar Tree. My gold string came from an Amish stamp store....years ago! I finally found the right project to use it on! All I can say is that these pictures do not do these tags justice.

The tags are perfection with the brilliant red poinsettia, the wood-grain background and the bold black sentiment! Someone is going to really like these when it's time to wrap presents this Christmas! Beautiful!
