Throwback Thursday Challenge with Emma

I am so tired today. Tuesday and Thursday I am in a water aerobic class followed by a water yoga class. I love these two class but today I must have worked out too hard and then got too relaxed because I haven't had any energy left for the rest of the day.
I did have enough energy to get these fun Christmas gift tags made for the Throwback Thursday Challenge.  
 The stuffed animals are from Hallmark. They are so funny. They sing, dance and jingle bells. I laugh every time I turn it on.

Emma's challenge this week is to make a Christmas theme project of your choice using Celebrations cartridge. It is a challenge because that cartridge is more of a birthday cartridge. I love this little gift cut. I used my Gypsy to wield two together to make a gift tag card. The paper is some Christmas paper I had. The kitty and puppy are also on this cartridge. 
Yesterday Emma's new video came in the mail and I sat down and watched it all. I think it influenced me to use the kitty and puppy. That is all I am going to tell you. You will have to get your own copy. It really is a good one.
Here are a couple of close ups of the tags.
I cut the whiskers off and drew in whiskers with a fine tip pen.
The eyes are from a Peachy Keen stamp set.
I used stickles to dress up the ribbon and hats. Gift tags are so much fun to make. 

I hope you enjoyed my creations today.

Thanks for stopping,
