First time tag!

I've had a go at a collage type tag....not sure it's quite right so I'm relying on you talented people to give me the heads up!..

 I like the background It's a manila tag painted ....   ( well you know covered)  with gesso then when dry stamped with the snowflakes using DI faded jeans..

At the bottom of the Santa image is a lovely little rhyme...On Christmas day with luggage gay Father Christmas comes to stay.

The lovely father Christmas is from Dezinaworld (where you will find some fabulous images and more)  who is running an "Every one wins Challenge... " pop along and have a look at all the gorgeous inspiration.

Do you like the snow?...  the real bit :)

Added later same day:)
I've also entered this into Tuesday Taggers competition Ive been blog hopping and TT's challenge is to use Father Christmas so this fits the bill nicely. See link in my side bar.

This is a photo taken on the snow on my garden table... just to prove that we here in Crewe have had snow!... no where near as much as some of the UK...  we have not had any transport problems or school closure much to the disappointment of the children.

A very nice tag and the image is certainly vintage style. Nice new look to your blog background too - very seasonal. The snow reached the west country overnight but nothing like other parts of the country.

Hi Suzi. I really like your tag and it has a lovely vintage feel to it. We have a sprinkling of snow.But is very cold here to night. Hugs x ChrisB

No wonder it looked so cold, Suzi. It's real snow. Your tag is gorgeous! I love the icy colors.

Love your tag! The background is wonderful, the effect of the gesso on the manilla tag makes it look like worn wood. The caption on the image made me smile!!
