11th day of Christmas with Smeared & Smudged

Nearly at the end of this fab blog hop organised by the Smeared & Smudged forum. The last day will be on the 23rd and no doubt there'll be a splendid array of eye-candy that day as well by my fellow bloggers. Back to today though.
A very simple tag for attaching to young grandson's pressie that Santa will no doubt have left under our tree by mistake. Going to have a house full apparently as he with his mum and dad have invited themselves to Christmas lunch hehehe. The more the merrier and Christmas is all about the children. I miss having the young'uns sometimes now that ours have all grown up.
Back to my tag. I didn't go overboard with it as no doubt it'll end up in the rubbish bag along with all the wrapping paper. Just something to make it that bit more special than the shop bought ones.

I used a Kenny K Father Christmas image, coloured with promarkers. Boots, lips and eyes have been given a light coat of glossy accents.
The base is glossy paper with DI rubbed over then spritzed with a home made shimmer mist after running through the bigshot with a snowflake plate. A bit of ribbon attached before backing with a scrap of Christmassy DP. The Merry Christmas ticket is chipboard, well inked, some self-adhesive letters from "that box of bits that might come in handy" coloured red with promarker again. Attached to the ticket and more glossy accents added with just a light dusting of glitter. Some holly leaves from that same box and red gems for berries.
Santa was attached with foam tape. Some ribbons to tie with some jingle bells.
See told you - quick and easy.

Blog list is still over there on the right for you merry hoppers to follow and get to see the awesome projects the others have made.
