Season's Greetings!

This weekend was a long, exhausting one. But I think I'm ready for Christmas! Found a drum set for the grandson (ha ha, won't his mother be pleased?) And have everything purchased for my Dad's fruit cake. Yes, my dad loves fruitcake!  He's the only person I know who actually looks forward to it!
I wanted to make a project this morning, but knew I wouldn't have time to do anything too time-consuming. So, I opted for a tag. MY GRAFICO is sponsoring a ChristmasChallenge at http://mygraficocrafts.blogspot.com/p/christmas-challenge.html

I printed the bird image and then stamped the sentiment and the cage (which is faint and is difficult to see in the photo).  Wish I'd had some smaller pearls. Note to self: add that to wish list.

Bazzill cardstock base; MY GRAFICO freebie bird image; Paper Studio, pearls; bird cage stamp, Jillibean Soup; Flower brad, Creative Imaginations; sentiment, Paper Company; stock gold and black ribbon; and red netting from produce wrapper!
Also, this tag is entered in the challenge at:
2 Sisters Challenge (Christmas)
City Crafter (Vintage Christmas)
Critter Sketch Challenge (Christmas)
PaperPlay Challenge (Anything but a card!)
I Did It! (Anything Goes)
Lexi's Creations (Glitter and Pearls)
Penny's Paper Creations (Merry Christmas)
Papertake Weekly (Anything Goes)

Wish me luck this week!
