Tags and Fun Stuff

Good evening friends :)  Well, my son made it back from University and is here until Sunday :)  So both my men are home and I’ve given them sugar cookie icing duty while I play, ahem, work {wink} in the studio :)  I would like to share a few of my gift tags that are about to go on some gifts under the tree.  The first one on the left is for my sweet husband.  He loves to hunt and fish so I got some camouflage gift wrap for his presents.  I had some scraps left over, so thought it only fitting I should make a matching tag.  The joke with us is when he wears his camos, I can’t see him!! LOL  So I’ve attached a big red bow to his present and a red star to the tag so he can see them clearly!! LOL  The middle tag is for my bonus son (he likes baking for his present from me) and the last one to the right is for my son, Jake (using up a scrap of that delicious paper I used yesterday :)  The tag designs were inspired by Dawn McVey in her fabulous post here.  Up next is the out of this world amazing card my dear friend, Melisa, gave me when she came over for a studio play date yesterday….she’s the one who introduced me to card blogs, Verve, and stitching!!!  How fabulous is that tree with those hand sewn glass beads?  I’m still drooling!!
Okay, the last part of this post is the List of Fours that my buddy, Lynn, tagged me on…so just if you’re interested…

You do such a great job of everything you do - those are some lucky guys! Good that you put them to work - it should keep them out of trouble. LOL! Such beautiful tags - and all with your perfect button beauties. I didn't order that vintage oval, but now I think I might just have to pick it up!

Your friend Melisa always does such beautiful creations!

Ha! Love your comments about winter - you really aren't a winter person are ya, Diva?! ;D
I'm about to crank that tag die through my bug tonight to distract eyes from my shoddy wrapping technique! I'll take inspiration from these sweet tags methinks :)
P.S Went into town today for a few bits and bobs and couldn't help but smile at the board outside Starbucks advertising Eggnog Latte - thought of you straight away! :)
