Somewhere in my morning ritual of following a number of crafting people, I came across someone who mentioned that they were going to also enter their tag into the 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2016 Challenge. This intrigued me as I wanted to make a number of Christmas tags this year. Following the link, I ended up on the blog of Tracey McNeely, named In my Creative Opinion. It appears to be a Canadian Blog, so I was even more interested. The problem is that the challenge started on November 1 and it was now November 21st! That meant a lot of catching up to do.
I always feel a need to justify my huge stash, by making a concentrated effort to actually use everything I have bought. It occurred to me that I could add to this challenge by challenging myself to make a tag using products from each of the 25 sponsors of the challenge. So far, I have managed to do this, but there is a problem looming on Day 8.
The rules of the challenge include citing the source of the tag inspiration from the tags done by each sponsor’s design team.
