Challenge #24 - Snowman (Make a Tag)

Welcome to The Card Concept. 

For this challenge we are thrilled to be teaming up with Tracey McNeely and her 25 days of Christmas Tags! Thank you for having us, Tracey!

For this challenge we are looking for:

1.) A TAG or a CARD with a tag on it
2.) Snowmen, snow or any other "wintery" theme! 

Each week we offer up a challenge for you to try, and we hope that you will create in one of the styles we have offered here. 

The team is divided into the different styles and each designer explains how they were inspired by the challenge! 

So come and join us and try your hand at a brand new "style" of card making or work in your comfort zone, it is totally up to you!

We are also excited to welcome, Sheri Gilson to the team! She is joining us as a Classy & Elegant Designer! I asked Sheri to share a bit about herself, here's what she had to say!

Hi! My name is Sheri and I live in Northern California with my husband of 21 years and our 15 year old son. I’m a SAHM who loves to create. I was first introduced to stamping just before the birth of my son and have never stopped. I currently design for By LORi Designs, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, i {heart} papers, The Deconstructed Challenge, and The Pink Elephant Challenge. Thank you so much, Lesley, for  for asking me to join the DT in the Classy & Elegant category!!  I'm super honored to be here.

The styles are explained HERE.

The first thing I saw when I looked at the inspiration photo was the snow in the background.  I used that and the colors from the photo to make this card.  

Tracey McNeely
I was inspired by the emotion of the inspiration photo, this cool dude is ready to hit the slopes.

Clean & Graphic
Doesn't this wee guy make you holly & jolly?

Clean & Layering

I was inspired by the snowman surrounded by snow, and his happy face!

Snowmen are the best! They make me happy :)

I made one snowman tag but then I decided to make 
a couple of other tags to make a collection!!

Shabby Chic

I don't own a snowman stamp! Don't think they go with our hot Aussie Christmases - so I found myself this cute digital snowman image to use on my tag.

I was inspired by the falling snow to create this fun snowman scene!

Snowmen make the perfect subject when creating a holiday tag!

My snowman can be found in the moon:)

Classy & Elegant

 I was inspired by the snowmen and snowflakes to create my card.

Wild Card Team

(The Wild Card team have each chosen a style to represent...
visit their blogs to see what they chose!)

These little snowdudes are just so cute, so excited to finally use them!

The cute happy snowman of the inspiration photo made me use the joy on my tag! Who doesn't feel joy building a snowman?! :)

I am already in the holiday mood!!

Sue Trembeth
I love that fact that these tags are mini cards. They open up for a fun sentiment inside.
Snowman and Christmas - love them both!!

I adore Snowmen and enjoyed paper piecing and shading
this little guy!  We all know that snow doesn't stay stark white for long. LOL
