Christmas Large Tags & Birdhouse Card.

Well we are stuck inside due to the first (of many I`m sure) major storm. I got my son up to head off to work and my DH to clean off the car. Much to my dismay, I only got as far as 10 feet when I accepted the Michael's coupon spending today. I was stuck. We got about 25cm and expect another 10. The wind is the problem...lots and lots of drifts.

Oh well, I only hope my DS`s boss like threatened is worth the pay check. So onto today`s post. I made these tags a few days ago and forgot to post them. They are large 5 inches by 3 inches. I made them to hang off large gift bags.

I used paper scraps from that wonderful slab from DCWV Glittered Christmas paper. I found the Happy Holidays in a bin at Michael's and the tag at the bottom is SU`s Curly tag embossed with detail gold.

The one above uses the oval tag for the to and from section and another Curly Tag stamp. I doodled around the oval stamp for some color.
And now for the card I originally was giving out at the Open House.
I made 35 of these cards and then decided that variety was a whole lot more fun. I used a full sheet of paper and got 4 cards out of each. The cards are 11 inches by 3 inches. I folded the length so that I had the underneath showing. I used the Inkadinkado stamp for the Merry Christmas and the birdhouses are from Impression Obsession.
I used Twinkling H2Os to color in only part of the image. I think that kind of adds impact. What do you think?
So far I have made about 60 cards for the Open House only about 60 to go! I have just been told by my DH that it is time to get to decorating....I know he waits until I sit at my desk to decide its do something else. He hates computers and really hates to see me content at one. Oh well, he is a great guy except for this...but hey, sometimes my hearing just is not that great! I have learned from the men in my life...selective hearing is a great thing.
Talk later.
