TagTuesday Challenge -- Christmas "Colors" in July


They've been putting up the Christmas merchandise at Hobby Lobby for weeks already -- staying true to the "Christmas in July" concept.  So for today's challenge I thought we would do Christmas "colors" in July.  Which means to create a tag using the traditional Christmas colors of red and green -- but do NOT make it a Christmas tag.   Bring these colors into a tag that has some other theme than Christmas.
Have fun creating tags this week!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For my tag I used some of my favorite things I showed in my last post, including the Bingo card from Tim Holtz' Lost and Found paper pack and the twinchie from Lisa's Altered Art.

Oh I'm so glad when I read to not make a Christmas tag, I'd have to put away all my Halloween stuff just to be able to work! This will be a real challenge Louise! I'll be back soon. Your a hard act to follow!

I can't believe that Christmas Colors in July is the challenge that finally helped me break my creative block, but it did! Thanks to you Louise for the wonderful inspiration tag.
bless you!

Another good challenge, Louise! I avoid red and green, except at Christmas. It was fun to figure out how to use them without calling out the holiday!

Silvia said...

Louise, your Tag looks fab, love the shape.
Such a wonderful theme this week. Red and Green isn't really my colour-combination, but it worked :)

I am glad it is raining today, not like last week when we had 35°C. I would've had a problem creating this tag ;)

Vicki Romaine said...

This was an enjoyable challenge.

Rachel said...

As ever, Louise, you have challenged me to stretch my mind to create...without your challenges I would probably stay in a rut! Have a great week.
