Here Comes Santa

Good Morning,

I hope everyone is doing well. I have lunch plans with a dear friend, so I am very excited. We haven't spent any time together since she took leave to finish her degree, so I am thrilled we have this opportunity.

Every year, my two children (17 and 13 now) get one present from Santa. The wrapping paper is always different than all the others and it is hidden away rather than stored in the same container. The paper usually has Santa images on it too. I thought this next challenge was perfect since I made Santa tags to match.
I made this one on the right for my son. Don't you love that North Pole charm? The one on the left is for my daughter.
The back of the tag. I used the Celebrations cartridge to cut the words.
Preserves cartridge ~ tags at 3 1/2"
Doodlecharms cartridge ~ Santa (top) cut at 2"
Joys of the Season cartridge ~ Santa (bottom) cut at 2"
Celebrations cartridge ~ To and From cut at 1/2"
Cuttlebug embossing folder ~ Snowflake and Swiss dots
red ribbons
white and red ink
red, green, and white buttons
North Pole charm 
silver gem ~ pom pom on Santa's hat
wiggly eyes ~ 4mm
white glitter (Santa's hat)
all papers are from the scrap pile

Bitten By the Bug 2 ~ Tag/Christmas Image (No Winter Frolic cartridge, yet...I am still hoping to get it!)  

Merry Christmas to all,
