Happy Wednesday everyone, afraid there´s not much happening on my work desk this week as I´ve finished my christmas cards and posted the ones off to England, not cheap I can tell you as everyone of them had to be weighed, a lengthy operation but no use getting stressed as he only has one speed, slow, as we say over here, dont visit the bank and post office in one day!! Eighteen Euros later I asked myself , as I do every year, why didn´t I make them regulation size to save on postage, trouble is I do love making square cards, anyway that was one job ticked my list of things to do. I just hope they arrive quicker than my new Grandsons birth card, it took four weeks to arrive in San Francisco, Jennie says its in pride of place and Joey was thrilled to receive a card of his own for being a  big brother.

 This week on my desk are the tags I´ve been making, I keep seeing some amazing ones, and although I love making tags mine never quite look as good as the ones I keeping see on the blogs I´ve been following, anyway I thought I would have  a little go this week, I started out doing just one for Jennie, our daughter-in-law,  but then got a little carried away!
 At the back of my desk you can see my die cuts etc in a plastic tub, to be used at a later date, hopefully, and my shoe box stuffed full of white off cuts, I´ve been using them to cut poinsettias out for my tags, I even made a pinky spray with mica powders and distress inks to colour them! oh and I´m still fiddling with the tattered pinecone, I love the leaves that are part of the die though, maybe next year I´ll have mastered how to make them so they actually look like a pinecone although I did make a lovely silver christmas rose out of one so not a total disaster.

 Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a lovely week.
