A New and Odd Release is coming...

Hi all,

Well, I have a cute and fun gift tag to show you today - and it is for the winter holiday season!  Now, we are still 2 months away from Christmas, but us crafters usually get a head start!
I am using an image that will be released at Some Odd Girl on November 9: Pressie Tobie!  Just WAIT until you see all the holiday/winter images that Kristy has dreamt up for us all - you will just die!

I am playing along with a few challenges today as well:

- Allsorts Challenge 75: Spots and Stripes (I have spotted DSP, and striped ribbon)
- Craft Your Passion Challenge 29: Glitter/sparkles
- Fussy and Fancy Challenge 22: Winter Wonderland

This gift tag is made using a piece of Close To Cocoa CS with 2 of the corners cut at a diagonal.  I added a 1/2" Basic Black circle at the top, with a 1/4" circle punched out of the middle.  It looks like a re-inforcer!
All of the DSP I used is from the retired SU pack called Frosty Days.  On top of the base, I added a green piece of DSP with a black mat.  I also added a Whisper White strip, punched with my Martha Stewart Icicles edge punch, and wrapped some matching miscellaneous ribbon around that.  Lastly, I added a piece of polka-dotted DSP to the bottom.

I printed Tobie onto PTI White CS, coloured him with Copics, and cut him out.  I also added some glitter to the ribbon on the present for some sparkle.  And Tobie's green eyes are done with an Atyou Spica glitter pen.

Did you know that voting is open HERE for the name of our poor Monkee?  Make sure you help us decide what he will be called!

Also, you only have a few days left to get your SOG FREEBIE before the month is up and a new freebie comes to us.  Make sure you download it if you haven't - it's perfect for the month of October.

Also, we have a challenge happening on the SOG blog - a colour challenge to fit the season perfectly!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
