A Holly Jolly Tag - FMS

 




It is go time around here!  The tree is up, on line shopping is finished, packages are wrapped, and pies are in the freezer.  Please notice there is no mention of Christmas cards being finished or mailed....sigh...I won't even pledge to start earlier next year because it never happens!  So quick and easy tag cards work perfectly right now!  I am sending a few more cards than usual this year since our regular holiday gatherings will not be happening this year.....because of you know what....

In the meantime find yourself a nice furry four legged friend to hang out with! 



Emma and Joy





Jacquie has a wide open sketch for you this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Have fun making a tag of any design!



The Paper Players is hosting a Christmas challenge this week.



Stamp Sets: Peace and Joy, Joyful Holly

Love this gorgeous holly combo Linda - a stunning use of that flocked paper for the background. Just lovely! And I'm glad you are not done on the Christmas card front - me neither, despite the best of intentions! Thanks for playing along with my theme challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

This card is just gorgeous Linda! I love the background and the tag is so elegant. The colours just pop. Very stunning! I have most of the gifts purchased, the wrapping started today but pies...no pies here!!!! You're one ambitious lady!

Karren said...

Beautiful card and a gorgeous background!

Jen Timko said...

This is beautiful! I love the tag itself but the background is really fabulous too. Now for this whole pies are made thing? So you mean that pies can be made and stored and not eaten?? This is a new concept for me. ;-)
