Its the Wednesday before Christmas...

...and all through the house parcels are appearing and excitement is increasing! It is time for WOYWW and on my desk you can see the all important mug of tea which is keeping me going while I make the lsat minute tags for the presents I still have to wrap. The tags are being made by using a small square cuttlebug embossing folder as the outline, and then a free stamp coloured with promarkers for the centre, hence the open drawer of promarkers with those in use on the desk.At the back of the desk, almost hiding behind the mug are the completed tags, with my craft mat and green and red card underneith on the left, all of which are under my Christmas stamp box.
Here are the 6 most recent completed tags which are basically 2x2 inch cards that get attached to presents with double sided tape. The two tree tags are being entered into Kaboodle Doodles 'Christmas tree' challenge, the holly tags are being entered into Cupcake inspirations challenge, and the Christmas puddings are being entered into One Stop Craft 'Christmas sparkle' challenge. They are all also being entered into TioT 'Anything goes' challenge.
I also had a few last minute Christmas cards to make for work colleagues.  This santa one is being entered into Crazy4challenges 'santa', Speedy the cat's friends 'Christmas card', PTW 'Christmas card' and Pile it on 'bling' challenges.
This one used JustRite stamps and a cuttlebug embossing folder and is being entered into PaperPlay 'Christmas' challenge.
This one also used JustRite stamps with two different distress inks, as well as the embossing folder and I am entering it into the card Makin Mama's 'Christmas' challenge.
That is all from me for now. I hope all your preparations go smoothly and you have a great rest of the week.
Love,
Caro
