Join in the fun every day at 
taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises wait behind the door!

For day 18 of this advent hop, I created a set of tags:

advent calendar extravaganza

Using my brand new MISTI tool made it so easy to stamp all 6 tags quickly, and have them look exactly the same. That was the quick part. It took a little longer to color everything in, but that's what I love. I love using stamps and inks and coloring, and sometimes that is so much more relaxing to me than lugging out the die-cutter (oh, it stays out at your house? pffft. I have to put everything away before every mealtime. ha.)

I used Lawn Fawn's Toboggan Together. I really love that reindeer image!

I hope you like my simple (but time-consuming, haha) tags! Since this is Taheerah's party, she's arranged for prizes every day! Today's sponsor is Lawn Fawn - woot!  Leave a comment on this blog post to be entered, and then pop back over to Taheerah's blog and leave a comment on her blog post today to double your chances. You have until December 31st, 7AM EST to leave your comments.

  4. Love these tags! I also find the colouring part relaxing. I hear you about the die cutting...I have to go downstairs to the cold basement!

  5. Your tags are absolutely darling and I agree: colouring is wonderfully relaxing! I craft on the kitchen counter, in a 3' x 2' space between the sink and the fridge. My routine is always stuff out...and put away...out and put away, repeat, so I hear you loud and clear *grin*. Dream house needed...with my own crafting room! Thank you for being part of Taheerah's Advent series.

  16. The tags are darling.
    I'm finding out the hard way that the Misti really makes life so much easier when you use it. I had a card assembled and needed to add a border. Naturally the stamp didn't ink completely so I had to tear the card apart and re-assemble. If I'd used the Misti I could have just re-inked and filled in the places I missed. thanks for sharing.
