Christmas tags

Hello lovely people,

Having finished all the Christmas cards, it was on to the tags and I made a set of co-ordinating tags using the fab Cricut cartridge ‘Lacy Labels’ for the base shapes.    I stitched around the panels and edged everything with TH Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  The rosette was made using an edge punch on a strip of paper and then I folded it by hand at equal spacing.

Housewarming cookies

Hey peeps,

We visited some friends this weekend who have recently moved and I baked some cookies to take as a housewarming gift – sorry there are no photos of the cookies but they were very tasty!  I made a tag using a little house stamp coloured with ProMarkers but I am not at home as I write this and can’t for the life of me remember where the stamp is from; maybe Hero Arts?!

I would like to enter the tag in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, which has the theme of ‘anything but a card’ this week.

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments,
