Christmas Tags!

Hello to Everyone, well are you all on track for the Big Day? I think we are, despite having a nasty virus which I'm still trying to get over. 

Thank you all so much for you lovely comments on my last post and good wishes for our Carolthon, it will be a wee while before we know the end amount raised, but I think we will have raised quite a bit.
However, I had no voice, I'd been croaky the day before but Saturday morning I couldn't talk at all let alone sing, but I was determined I wasn't going to miss out, so I just mimed. I must have run on adrenalin too, then collapsed in a heap once home, but it was good. I'm still not feeling  tip top, but felt I just had to carry on. The good thing about miming is that in my head I sang like Cecillia Bartoli, and for those who don't know who she is, she is the most wonderful Italian Mezzo Soprano, and I love her voice. A girl can dream.

Anyway, nearly there and today I have a selection of Tags, made for the family gift bags;
First up are the tags for Damian and Moreen. Sue Wilson poinsettia die and Chocolate Baroque stag image.

I thought this Jolly little Gingerbread Man from Papermania was just right for Alistair.

And just because I could I made a tag each for Milo and Rowan using TH Crazy Dogs stamps and coloured them with the new Procolour pencils from Derwent.

We have been out with our friend Dougie today had had a very lovely Christmas Dinner and we are all stuffed, Dougie was looking forward to having a snooze when we dropped him off and Alistair is now sound asleep on the sofa, and I'm just pleased I won't need to cook tonight.

So that's me for now, have a good evening and I'll see you the night before Christmas, take care of yourselves,

Kate, so sorry you were under-the-weather for the concert, but as you say, you sang beautifully! (that was so cute) You showed up, did your best and that's what counted. Love these adorable tags. While the dogs & ginger guy are precious, I really loved the deer scene. I hope you were able to get rested up from all the excitement, and ready to enjoy the Big Day with your loved ones. Thanks so much for the gorgeous card...and
