A few posts back I created a card design featuring one of these adorable gnomes. Well, at that same time, I had colored the whole lot of these six gnomes so there were five remaining that needed a home. Here is what I came up with.

A Holiday with Sprigs and Sprays

Winter Magic Christmas Tags

HI Crafty Friends,

If you are like me, you are still making Holiday cards. I love this time of year and I want to squeeze every minute out of it before it fades away for another year. Another way to do that is to make tags.

We always need tags to label and adorn our gifts. I have used the Winter Magic kit to show other ways you can extend the use of this holiday kit. By the way, if you haven’t bought yours yet, use the coupon WINTERMAGIC2020 for 15% off – YAY!
