Christmas tags

This year for about the first time ever I feel like I am almost ready for Christmas...  Thank goodness for the internet!  I don't know what I would do without it!  Not only do I not have enough faith in the Greek postal system to send parcels out from here to friends and family all over the world, but I also struggle to find the things I want to buy for them here.  Now I will just have to cross my fingers and hope everyone gets their prezzie!

Now that BB and I have been busy ordering in card making supplies, we had not excuses not to make our own Christmas cards and Christmas tags... I kept my tags pretty simple... just digi stamps on Kraft, coloured with copics and white gel pen with a bit of glitter for sparkle.

Of course, I forgot to photograph my 40 or so different tags before I wrapped the prezzies and attached them!  These are the four that are still waiting to go on gifts...

This year we opted for a white tree.  We collected a burnt branch from the countryside where a fire had been through last year and spray painted it white, decorated it with candy canes, Christmas lights and red baubles and went with it!

I am quite enjoying the simple Christmas tree look!

Merry Christmas!

All totally stunning... will ask the family this side of the ditch to hold onto their tags for you... that way you'll be able to photograph them.

LOVE the tree!

...and because we now have all this wonderful equipment - I have also successfully made tags for Christmas! Presents yet to be wrapped but I'm working on two a day inbetween naps and other things and they'll be done by next Saturday!
