The dog in this Mama Elephant stamp and die set looks like our Roxie!

The greens die is from Elizabeth Crafts, The lights are from i.o.
Background is a stencil by Dylusions.  It's embossed with white embossing paste.

I love that this door die actually makes the door open!

                                       Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Trio-Tastic
Tag # 3 of the Trio-Tastic Challenge.  Santa's Bag by Waffle Flower embossed with initials.
Background, Boots and Hat from Hero Arts.  Darling little mice from Mama Elephant.

Sometimes when I color these little critters I get attached to them and begin to imagine a story . . .
here Santa has come home from a long night flying around the world.  The mice have one last snack for him before he goes to bed.  He hasn't forgotten them.  There is lots of cheese left in his bag for them.

I love this tag so much I'm not sure I can give it away!  There are lots of 3's including three elves, three ornaments and three mini jingle bells.  Santa's bag die and stamp are from Waffle Flower.  I heat embossed Santa's initials on the bag.  The elves and accessories are from a fabulous set from MFT.
The background stamp is from Hero Arts.  The hills are die cuts from Lawn Fawn.

One of the very first "rules I learned scrapbooking then card-making was to use elements in uneven numbers.  Simon Says' challenge is using elements in threes.  On this card there are lots of threes . . .
3 sets of three packages and 3 buttons on Santa.  Except for the blue background I also used three colors . . .  gold red and green.
Presents and Tree from MFT
Santa from Avery Elle
Bag from Waffle Flower
Background from Hero Arts
Hills die cut with Lawn Fawn

This tag all began with the Waffle Flower Santa's Bag stamp and Die.  Santa's initials from MSE were gold heat embossed.  The dear stamps are from Avery Elle.  Package stamps are from MFT.
Snowy Hills are dies from Lawn Fawn.
     It's the background I am really excited about.  That is a stamp from Hero Arts!  I used it both for the sky and to heat emboss the sparkling snow.

My 2 1/2 year old grandson is obsessed with Nursery Rhymes.  He sings them start to finish without missing a word!  This tag will be on a package (mittens and hat) for him.
The kitten stamps are from Simon Says Stamp.  The mittens are a stamp and punch from Stampin Up.  Pink Paisley makes the snowflake pattern paper.
