Seasonal Tags

While I was clearing my room last week I found a sheet of Christmas Rub On Stickers ... so wondered how to use them up ... so I've just made some quick Tags for next Christmas!!

I know the bottom left tag is upside down!! duh!! I was having a hot flush when doing photos and getting very flustered ... must be my age!! and I really didn't feel like getting all camera out again after I saw my mistake!!

I've rounded the corners on some of the tags ...

They were really easy to make ... just rubbed the images on ... added some stick-on gems/pearls and ribbon! I'm really pleased with how they came out.  So these tags are stashed away and all ready for me to find next year!! hee hee!

I'd like to enter the following Challenges:-

Fab'n Funky - Challenge 152 - 'Add Ribbon and/or Lace' ends 30th December 2012

Paper Crafting Journey - 'Anything Goes' ends 9th January 2013 

I started watching an Agatha Christie Film on 4 on Demand yesterday... it was 'Thirteen at Dinner'... Peter Ustinov was playing Inspector Poirot... and I was quite enjoying it until he introduced Inspector Japp - he was only played by David Suchet!! and he was talking in a cockney accent ... obviously it was before Suchet took on the role of Poirot .. but it was well confusing!! LOL - so I gave up on it and ended up crafting! I'm not very impressed with the TV this Christmas ... I'm glad that I have loads of DVD's to watch! Might try and find some Dickens to watch tomorrow..... I am missing Strictly! and on weekdays I will be glad when Neighbours is back!! it's the only Soap that I watch now... but I enjoy it while I'm eating my tea! Smile

I hope you are all well ... BIG hugs to those of you who are not feeling good!
Take Care
Love and hugs

Hiya Sue, The tags are lovely, my you will be so far ahead by next Xmas lol.

I'm just taking a quick break from crafting to play video games, I bought 'Leggo Lord of the Rings' yesterday and it's awesome...have you played games at all? much better than DVD's lol.

Never watch Neighbours now, 'Home and Away' is much better!

Now that's what I call getting ahead Sue!! They all look brilliant and love the rounded corners. I am going to watch Downton Abbey on ITV Player because I forgot to record it when we went away and also Call the Midwife!! Hope you are well hugs Susan x

Morning Sue, well, you are certainly well organised for next year, these are great! It's reminded me that I think I have some similar peel offs too! I agree with you over the tv completely...Mark and I have been ill all over Xmas with flu (we want jabs next year!) it still hasn't cleared up, so tv is something I thought we could rely wrong I was. I enjoyed downtown and call the midwife, but they were both so sad! I don't think anything else has been worth watching...hope you are ok and had a good xmas..happy New year hun, big hugs, Teresaxxx

Your tags look great - love the colorful images on neutral backgrounds! What a great idea to make next year's tags now - I wanted to make mine as a cozy December activity, and the end result was that I didn't have time to make any! So I will get to that task early next year!

KraftyKoolKat said...

Gorgeous tags sweetie. It is okay I loved the stand on your head to view tag too. Lol!!!

It is confusing when the put someone in a role that doesn't belong there. I am like that when I watch Murder She Wrote. They use all the same actors in different roles each episode it is awfully confusing.

Happy New Year sweetie and I hope you have better health in 2013.


chrissy xx said...

Gasp! lol...You're ahead of me now...making tags for next year!I don't believe it good is this? Very...
They are FABulous tags..LOve the colours and that GORgeous ribbon...
I watched sad was that..then like you said not much to watch over Christmas.

Claire said...

Blimey Mrs organised LOL - how quick and easy are these to make and you have inspired me to make some too - have loads of Christmas rub-ons that I will probably never use, so this is a great idea. I love yours, so colourful too. Hugs, Claire xx

How very clever to already get started Sue! See where cleaning out a room can lead you to, lol! Lovely tags with such pretty images, too! Have a great evening, talk to you soon, big hugs, Ira xox

Sarah J. Moerman said...

Wonderful tags! Great images! Thanks for joining us for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge!

Alessandra said...

Hello you very well organised and smart cookie!! You will not be in trouble next year...neither will I, have already one card ready lol! And after commenting I will head straight back to my craft desk and finish the other one that I have started lol! Oooow I'll be soooo good!
TV here in Switzerland is pretty good over Christmas but crap over the new year. So glad we hav the Swisscom box, we can record movies and watch them later so that's a pretty good solution. Or we watch our DVD series like Castle, Desperate Housewives, The Mentalist, Lie to Me and Grey's Anatomy. That's perfect...
Well, lovely, I hope you and your parents and daughter have a wonderful New Year, hope to see you one day!
All the best, huge hugs, Alessandra

Vicky said...

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
