...a few wee tags.

I promised these a few days ago but I've been having trouble taking the photo. Usually I wait till about 4 in the afternoon when there's a lovely golden glow outside and take the pics beside the window - lately the sunshine dies around 2 - just when I'm on a school run. Been having to take pics at night with artificial light - what a difference it makes - might have to look into one of those wee light box tent thingies...

Anyhow, the 2008 Holiday tags collection by PapertreyInk is superb - I love them all - they had all the designers contribute at least one tag and they're fab!! I'm going to stamp out a batch more when I get a chance, these are such fun to make. The tag designs are also incredibly useful for making background papers - I haven't even scratched the surface here - but like everyone else I'm short on crafting time at the mo, tho I do have a lovely project in the offing - hope to put some pics up soon.

Just stamped and punched, stickled a few too. Decorated a wee tin to put them in as these are for my mum.

Hope they tickle.
