ABC Christmas Challenge - N & O are for?

It's the first Wednesday of the month, so that means that we have a fun new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today! I'm the host, and we have two themes:

'N is for Name'
&
'O is for On'

Our sponsor this month is Neat & Tangled

Prize - a $25 Gift Certificate!

There's also a little prize from me:

I made a set of simple personalised gift tags for my family members using trees from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous, and a set of alphabet stamps by Clear Stamps. I stmped on to some Papermania kraft blank tags using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed them using 'Metallic Gold Sparkle' powder by WOW. I'll change up the twine to something fancier when I use these, but for now just left the sting on them.


I'm also entering these tags into the following challenges:
For my 'O  is for On' project, I picked a cute Penny Black stamp of a chicken on a snowboard (called 'Snow-board Ride'. I doodled a simple border, then added in a slope underneath his snowboard and coloured him using watercolour pencils. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Tattered Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.



I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
