Have you got your gift tags done yet for Christmas?  I love, love, love making gift tags!!  And Christmas tags are the best because Stampin' Up always designs the cutest stamps for tags -- the hard part is trying to make up my mind which stamps I want to use.  Actually, the tags I'm showing you today are 2 easy-peasy designs created for an event that I knew people where not really into stamping.  I kinda forced them, but then they just couldn't get over how easy it was, yet really cute for their packages.  I also have 5 tags I did at this month's RubberQueen meeting that Ronda Wade and Tamie Ackerson designed (now these are really cute!!!).

And finally, a tri-fold thank you pocket card I did today.  I haven't done a legal size card in ages, but another easy-peasy creation when you are mailing out revised Envelope Punch Board labels to your customers.  It was a perfect fit for what I wanted to send.  I am a little disappointed however because I wanted to do another new project today to post (something crazy and really different), but never got to it by the time I finished sending out thank-you and Project H.O.P.E. card's.  But I love doing that and life was good today!!!

So here they are:

My simple/no frills gift tags to use up all those designer paper scraps.  (I love the stamp on the right, wish I had it when my girls were small.)

RubberQueens' November monthly meeting make'n takes -- so cute!!

Some inking with the brayer, then a little sponging -- another fast card.  This layer was actually a reject because I smudged some ink on the sky that was on my pinky finger.  So that is why there are birds flying around (LOL).  Tri-fold card using 8 1/2" x 11" Soft Suede cardstock.

Inside of card showing pocket to hold revised measurement label for the Envelope Punch Board.  Great way to say thank-you to my awesome customers and get their revised label to them.

I am so excited because "tomorrow" is going to be "my" day to create something different!!  I hope it turns out decent so I can post it.

Until next time,
