Count-down to Christmas has started

Yup! 45 days to Christmas and count-down has begun!

Have spent all my free time making Chistmas cards for a charity bazaar that took place yesterday. Am happy to say all of the cards were sold! I had some designs which I duplicated with a couple of odd ones thrown in as well.

*Hint hint* something special happens on 1 December and I will share some projects on 6 December.

Anyhow, while we're on the subject of Christmas I though I'd share the first 2 of 6 in total tag-cards that I've also made recently. (A tag-card is a tag mounted on a card.)

It started way back in early October when I saw Cari Fennell on Prima Live creating glorius bling tags and I fell in love with the peach coloured poinsettias that she used. I looked near and far for weeks before I finally found them in Europe. They are every bit as DIVINE as I had imagined!

I didn't have the stuff that she used so I went stash-raiding and came up with my own version of her tags. So all the credit to Cari, these are not my own original designs even if I piled on stuff from my stash.

Here they are, the first 2 cards;

  3. Oh I adore these colors, not the typical garish reds and greens that we normally see. Each one is so delish. You inspired me to create some holidays tags too.
