Happy New Year!

I was SO done making Christmas cards and projects. I was happy to put away my holiday sentiments... and then... Louise at Tag Tuesday Challenge this week is to use Christmas leftovers. That had me thinking about what I had saved from my Christmas leftovers and I thought of the candy bars in my kids stockings.  I loved this nutcracker on the chocolate bar that my children had stuffed in their stockings. He was the inspiration for my tag.  Of course encouraging one of my kids to eat their chocolate bar was not a problem. LOL!



I cut out the nutcracker, a piece of the silver inside, and the Hershey's name. The silver was embossed and distressed with a little black paint. The Nutcracker received a little stamping to his hat and shirt.  His hat received a little bling and red feathers.

This was a fun tag to piece together. I only had to pull out a few Christmas stamps to finish off my tag.

Now I am off to clean up my work room and do a little organization.  My DH is working on some new drawers for my desk top and a I received a few new cabinets. So I will be pulling everything out and cleaning it up and putting it back in place.


Wishing you all a wonderful new year to you!
