Gnome Man's Land!

It's Lizzie Anne design team challenge day, and this month's challenge was to make a tag. Mine is a long tag that I intend to hang on my son's door knob for Christmas!  I really do think he's GREAT!  Of course, I love him no matter what, but he gives me lots of reasons to be proud of him!

I used these images together thinking that it would be kinda like "gnome man's land" with this little guy hanging out in the woods with the reindeer.  Matthew's room used to be no man's land, but I am very happy to say that he has gotten the clean gene and has been into keeping it nice and straightened up lately!  Shhhh, don't say it too loud...don't wanna mess things up!  ;)

I realize the ribbon hanger is a little frilly but I really wanted to use it because it is elastic that will stretch to fit over the door knob...I loved the look of the frayed edges of those fiber blossoms against the spiky branches of the evergreen.  Since Matthew is into guitar and saxophone, I had to include a little bit of music!  I think he'll like it!  Gotta keep the spirit of Santa close to heart!
