A straggler tag and "dirty work"

On Christmas Eve, I realized I was one tag short, so I made this one real quick.  I inked a tag with stormy sky distress ink.  Then I inked the T.H. snowflake embossing folder with faded jeans and embossed the tag.  I outline the snowflakes with puffy paint and sprinkled with glitter.  When it was dry, I heated it to puff it up.  The reindeer is from the T.H. die Reindeer flight, I cut it out of MME Christmas paper.  I hot glued the berries around his neck, since I didn't have the little wreath stuff like T.H. (he has all the best products, lol).  I stuck a sticker that says Happy Holidays on the fancy shape and applied it with hot glue. 

Here's a layout I made right before Christmas for the leftovers challenge hosted by Pat at  Everything here is a left-over, there are no new products used or made!  On the frame and letters, I took some diamond dust, sprayed with tattered leather glimmer mist, then glued it on to make it look like dirt.  I also added some to the circles.  The letters are inked with antique linen and walnut stain to look dirty.  On two of the circles, I took some pieces of scrap cloth, tore it and glued it on.  Added some of the same cloth and some twine in misc spots around the pics.  On two of the circles, I used crackle accents, just to use them.  The pics of are Paul and Elias working on the water lines for Paul's new shop.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful new Year!!!
