Tag, You're It!

I quite like Tuesdays.  Not sure why as they are not near enough to the weekend to get excited but they are certainly better than Mondays or Thursdays.  Wednesdays are just dull and Fridays are always full of promise, so really Tuesdays are nothing that special, but I quite like them.

So, that's my mindless rambling over, let's get down to business!  Having made a flurry of James themed Christmas cards so far, I thought I would turn my attention to the other fun part of Christmas, the presents, and start on some gift tags.

Of course it's simple - as the Glitter Girls say, I "don't do difficult" (life is far too short)

You have to love this little chap!
This is the LOTV stamp Balancing Act
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment is from a Penny Black clear set and stamped in Love Letter Memento ink
That yummy striped paper is from Bo Bunny Elf Magic pad
Length of red satin ribbon from stash

I have had the fleeting thought of making my own wrapping paper this year by simplying stamping, either in coloured ink or watermark ink, on brown parcel paper - it was a fleeting thought though as the amount of stamping suddenly seemed rather daunting, and time will be too precious as we get towards the end of November and into early December, so it will be the usual cop-out of gift paper on a roll in this household!

Have a happy Tuesday all
Hugs, Squirrel xx

Haha, love the wrapping paper idea. I've started using pretty coloured tissue paper and wrapping in ribbons. It seems a bit different, but the tissue can be fickle!
Love your tag too. James is just the bestest! I've not got that image, but hmmm, think I might just need him! LOL
