WOYWW #189

A bright, chilly, red-sky good morning to Julia and her followers aka the WOYWWers. I wonder what your weather is like this morning and if it's the kind that ushers you into your craft room. I made myself a Xmas card plan for this year so that I don't end up in the stressful mess next Xmas like the last one, meaning I have a card to make this week. Today, therefore, could be the day!
However, I was in the mood for tag making yesterday after having received a surprise one in the post on Monday. The inspiration 'oozed' and the remnants of making it can be seen, plus the nearly finished tag, on my little work space this morning:
The tag needs ribbon, my glasses are on my face while I write this, there's a pile of stamps - 2 lots recently bought - an embossing folder - bought only yesterday, my brayer which took me half an hour to trace yesterday, heat gun, a print out of some 'how to' instructions which I used to create my version of the said tag plus all the usual inks, glues, tools etc..
The carpet was fitted to perfection for those of you who wished me well for that episode last week - thank you - and the canvas now hangs proudly in the front room.
Right then, I shall go make a Xmas card and pop back next week for another little chat.

Love the tag, oh my, you are off to an early start with the Christmas cards. But I do intend to follow suit, I always say I will start early and never do, but after last years fiasco, I definitely will. Love the plate of Tim stamps I spied! Have a great week, Hugs Shaz xx#65

I made my cards early but then left it very late to personalise them, write them and send them, so I was still in a panic as normal. Must do better this year. Your tag looks so pretty. I want to make some of those as well this year. Have a good week. xx Maggie #37

Love the tag you have made, I make my Christmas cards all year to save a mad rush - although last year was the first year I didnt manage it and made a rush of 60 in a weekend lol, - I am not sharing a desk as away from home looking after my friends cattery but enjoying having a good look around everyone else's desk
