Christmas tags for the Caardvarks Challenge

Hi, everyone!
 Finally, I finished a few small projects for the Caardvarks August challenge.
I haven't made time for it, though I noticed it at the begining of this month. Literally, I made a small tag and a tag shaped slider card. To tell you the truth, I have to start my work... But the intense heat weather disturbs me. So I played with my stamps tonight, despite I really have troubled that my computers work SLOW.

 Thank you so much Caardvarks for the wonderful challenge to have the opportunity to start thinking about something for this Christmas season!

Here are my tags (3.5"H x 2.25"W), 'Peace on earth'.

This is an extra photo.
 The left one is the slider card to use a Hitch Fastener by Tim Holtz idea-ology. For the right tag, I used a left-over genuine leather for its strap.
The globe graphic was made to use Adobe Illustrator. And, I doodled a holly tree at the upper letter 'P' on each. Really enjoyed making these. :)

Stamp used:
Stampendous stamps (bird, sentiment)
Other supplies:
Bazzill and American Crafts CS, letter paper
Tsukineko Versa Fine / Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black
Ranger Distress Ink / Stormy Sky, Liquid Pearl / Baby Blue, Distress Stickles / Picket Fence
Hero Arts Shadow Ink / Soft Pool, Soft Green, Snowflake felt & sequins
Stampendous / Fun Flock, Tim Holtz idea-ology / Hitch Fastener, Cloud 9 Design Metallic eyelet,
Copic Markers, Color pencils, ribbon, genuine leather, button, ball chain

To my dear friends:
 My summer holiday season was already over on my schedule. But it has been intense heat days - it was over 37C (= about 100F) the day before yesterday. Now, it's 32C (11:55PM). Terrible! :(
My computers work really slow and heat dreadfully. The one was broke by its heating... So, I played with my stamps and took pics tonight. The holly tree and the snow shaped lights was prepared for my work to take pics for the Christmas images, and I used them for my tags. Haha.
I came to be better, thank you.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a beautiful week!
