25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello crafty friends!  I was having a crafty day yesterday afternoon just playing around and also getting some DT work done.  But it was cut short because I received a call from my mom's assisted living place that she had fallen and hit her head.  There was apparently lots of blood and they couldn't stop the bleeding, so they took her in an ambulance to the emergency room.  We were there for four hours while they checked her out.  They right away knew that it was just a contusion (a break in the skin) and that she didn't require stitches or anything.  So she had a good night's sleep and she was fine today, thank goodness!
Anyway, I did manage to make two tags for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags challenge.  I love tags!  I don't know what it is about them, but I just adore making them.  On Day 1 of the challenge, Tracey made a tag with a wreath stamped on it, and it reminded me of some PTI stamps and dies I had that I could use to create one too.
I think I've purchased all the Enclosed series stamps and dies, and guess what?  They've never been used (of course!).  So I had to use them for this challenge.  The one on the left was die cut in white then stamped in green ink and red for the berries.  Then I stamped the sentiment in the center with red in as well.  Red stickles were added to the berries and a die cut bow at the top.  On the right one, I did the same, but added the Peace overlay and omitted the bow. 
If you haven't checked out the 25 Days of Christmas Tags, check them out!  Tracey has guest artists and prizes too!
