Pink Gems Challenge- #233- Anything Goes

Merry Christmas!!!!! :)
This will be my last post before Christmas so I wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! Anyone out traveling, I pray for safe travels!
Today starts a new challenge at A Gem of A Challenge!
It is always "Anything Goes", but we were asked on the dt to make anything but a card.
I decided to make Christmas tags. We have gift bags under the tree with our gifts in each one so I thought it would be great to put a tag with our names on them to set on top of each bag. My youngest daughter liked the idea so much that she made two tags for me also so that I have a tag for both of my gift bags under the tree as well. :) The scalloped shape at the bottom of each tag, I used a Dutch Doobadoo Shaped Art and just used a piece to form the scallop. I colored each one with my Copics.
Here are the images I used: Snowman Pom Pom, Snowman Lantern, Cocktail Chilly, and Snow Friends.
Shopping is made more easy now with Polkadoodles selling some of Pink Gem images now. :)
There are great prizes to be won, so I hope you come and participate.
Hope to see you there!
Hugs, and happy crafting!
