Christmas Joy

Hi!!  Here is Day 9  of  the challenge with Loll and Friends "Twelve Tags of Christmas"  With this tag I used one a bit wider than the others and dry embossed  the Swirl Christmas Tree from Craftz-Too, I have used this quite a lot, it is a favourite, and rubbed my blending tool over with Distress Ink "Peeled Paint" and cut two ice skates with Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers Die - Mini Toy Soldier and Ice Skate.   I shaded them with Distress Ink "Vintage Photo" and hand drew the laces with a Gel Pen that I bought from Aldi a long time ago. Stamped sentiment is from an old Christmas stamp set, and the Ho Ho Ho is from a piece of scrap paper with the Joy Christmas Die Set from Quickcutz.   I used red and white bakers twine for the bow and the cords holding the skates up, and I shaded around the edges with Distress Ink "Barn Door"  Hope you all like this one, and thanks so much for visiting today, Jasann
