Happy Thanksgiving & a fun holiday card and tag

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American Friends.  Today, I will enjoy having my children and husband home with me.  Just us four, relaxing, eating, watching tv.  It's the little things that make me happy.  Later tonight, we will have a small dinner.  A Smithfield honey spiral ham, mashed potatoes, sage sausage stuffing, rolls, glazed carrots, steamed asparagus, canned cranberry sauce (request from my husband lol...he likes the canned stuff better than fresh), then pumpkin and apple pie for dessert.  
I try to count my blessing all year long, but today I have been filled to the brim with all that I am thankful for.  I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with blessings.  I plan on getting my craft on a little later!  It is time to start on holiday cards, tags and presents!
I originally was planning on using both of these as tags, but I thought the snowman and the bird label, would look great on a card.  
I love, love, love to make tags!  Just grab some scrap cardstock, the pieces that are too small for a card, some of your favorite die templates, holiday stamps and maybe copics and stickles.  One cannot have too much glitter around the holidays.
When you give a gift, it just makes the gift so much more meaningful when it is given with a homemade card and tag.  The recipient feels special.  I like making people feel good, even if it is through a card.  Sometimes, that is all I have to give.  As much as I would love to, we just don't have the money to buy gifts for everyone we love.  So a pretty card will do.

materials used:
Lawn Fawn stamps
Spellbinders die templates
American Crafts glitter cardstock
white cardstock
Memento ink
Clearsnap ink
Copic markers

I guess I missed this post yesterday. Both are so cute. I LOVE the tags with the glittered presents and how you "highlighted" the "merry Christmas" sentiment.
