Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge and Tag Holder Tutorial

Hi Friends!! Okay, I was suppose to post this project yesterday for the Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge but. . . .well, the other night, I was suppose to create the project and I ended up falling asleep. Believe it or not but I fell asleep at 9:30. I just laid down on my bed just for a minute or two. . .well, that was the plan but when I opened my eyes, to my amazement, it was 6:00 in the morning! Ugggh! I've recently started riding my bike and I think it wore me out. By the way, I did really well yesterday. . .I rode for a total of 7 miles, 5 miles in the morning and 2 miles in the evening. Not bad, Maria!

Anyway, this Tag Holder was created for Christmas Stampin All Year Long challenge and this week Sankari of Sankari's Sunshine Corner is hosting the challenge. Her challenge is to create a tag or if you want a card with a tag. Well I decided to do a tag holder with the tags. I even created a tutorial for you. I was meaning to post this yesterday but I didn't have the time to finish the tutorial. I wanted to post it together. I finally got it done this morning. Yay! Be sure to scroll down to check out the tutorial. It's really easy!!!

Hey. . .I have a little story for you. Yesterday as my husband and I were riding our bike, he made a strange comment while we were talking. He said "it would be nice if you had a hobby that you would actually 'work'. . " Okay. . .was he being sarcastic? What was he implying? He didn't say it in a mean way but I heard it loud and clear! LOL! He knows I have a lot of hobbies and I love all of them and unfortunately, some of my chores sort of take a backseat to them. KWIM? Well, I decided to create my chores into a hobby. Yes, you heard it!!! It got my mind churning with ideas.

Don't laugh but I started a new blog!!! Another one? LOL! It's a challenge blog! Yup!!! It's an organizing challenge blog. . .stop by and check it out! Click Here I already created Day #1 challenge. Play along if you want to! The blog is new so there's not much on it right now but humor me and stop by anyway.

Anyway, try out the tutorial when you have the chance. It's a fun way to hold your tags or even to give as a gift to someone!! Hope you all have a wonderful day!
