A blowy day here..........

Very windy this morning and wet but the storm is passing, ( I think ) it has been dry for the last hour but I have not bothered to stand the bins up again yet ! I hope none of you have got any damage at your home.

I found a pack of 8 tags for £1.00 in Wilkinson's yesterday and thought they would make quick cards........I cut off the backs and matted them on to snippits of red mirri, I went through my bits and found 2 pieces of white card and run them through the cuttlebug snowflake folder, I used kraft card blanks, on the top one I doodled a red line with a promarker, 2 drew drops and a sentiment from stash

With this one, it's the same but I used peel-off snowflakes( really old lol) and merry Christmas sentiment.
They do look effective in real life.I an entering the following challenges;

Pixies crafty workshop-----------use snippets (3rd entry)

Clear it out challenge --------------anything goes

off to find a little verse for inside then they are ready for writing lol
Keep warm, dry and safe

These are beautiful Tilly. I always peek at gift tags as well - they often make beautiful toppers and these really are great. Love how you layered them so well.

Hugs, Di xx

Terrific cards, Tilly, and a great use of those tags. I picked up a couple of packs a few days ago thinking to use them as intended but now you've made me think again ... I might just make a card or two along the same lines as yours :) Elizabeth xx
