12 Days of Christmas - Day 1

Hello all- Edgar Allen Crow here again.  Yep- that crazy lady did it.  She signed up for the 12 Days of Christmas Smeared and Smudged style.  However, wait until you see what she has up her sleeve for you all, I think you will be glad she did.
In keeping with the holiday I was meant to get an elf hat.  Do you see a hat?  Nope, me either.  Hrumph- the benefits of this job just keep getting better and better, I'm just sayin'....
 For the first day of Christmas, Alex created a fun tag.  First is the Glimmer Mist background.  Unfortunately you all can not see the nice shimmer and shine effect and since it is SNOWING here the lighting for the picture doesn't help.  Trust me though, it is there and it is gorgeous.  The happy girl image is from Stampotique and part of the Penny/Torrente collection which Alex loooooooooooooooves.
 She then hand wrote the sentiment, like you could find a stamp that said that!, and stamped the swirls using her Prima Jacquard stamps, because they have the best swirls ever, in burgundy ink.  She distressed the tag edges with the same burgundy ink and highlighted the party dress. 
I hope you have enjoyed Alex's creation for today.  Day 2 will be on Friday so we hope you will pop by for it, and anything else in between if you would like.  To visit the other participants of the 12 Days of Christmas Smeared and Smudged Style you can use the list at the top right of the blog -no your other right.....
