My Very First Stamp! Christmas Tags
I made these tags with the very first stamp I ever bought! Before I knew what company names were all about...but I guess I was drawn to Penny Black stamps from the beginning. I bought this years ago, before I really started stamping, to make quick Christmas tags for presents. It was bounced around in junk drawers etc for many years, until I found my way to STAMPING ha!
It has since been rescued and has a place of honor among my many stamps now.
These tags were inspired by Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #44. Her challenge this week was to make a tag. Pretty easy and quick! Lucky for me since I have been home sick part of the week and I don't have much energy to finish anything! Easy is good.... Mary Jo made an awesome tag...you must go see it!

Cardstock: SU! Real Red, Glorious Green, Black
Ink: Black, prisma's/oms
Misc: Sizzix tag die, nesties, star brad, stapler, SU! ribbon, dimensionals, little red crystals on the ivy
