Hope you all had a good one!

Hi All

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa was good to you.... he certainly was very generous in this house... lots of nice goodies and smellies came down MY chimney!! LOL!

I'm just sharing with you some tags I made in the last run up to the big day...  I used some fabulous tags that the lovely Elaine diecut for me using a gorgeous PTI die.... Tag Sale #3 - (that I'm about to order) - and a lot of inspiration from Elaine hereself - thank you, kind lady!  The flower is using a Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia Die and some paper from my stash... I distressed the edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink, and the sentiments are from Paula Pascual Christmas Essentials clear stamp set.  A little button and a bit of cord finished the tags off.... and they did look gorgeous on the gifts there were attached to - even though I say so myself!!

My lovely OH is back at work today (wahhhhhh!), and will be working over the weekend and even on New Year's Eve.... well... people WILL shop at M & S.... and keep him busy!  I think he's looking forward to it being quieter after all the celebrations are over...  He says he's never seen people behave in the way they do in the shop... (customers that is...)  They still had people coming into the store at 3 pm on Christmas Eve demanding to know why there were no turkeys/garnishes/gravy/deserts etc... and getting really nasty when they were told that pretty well everything had run out!!  People had been queueing when the store opened at 6 a.m.!  And there were fisticuffs in the car park too!  All over food.... can you believe it?  The shop was only closed for two days!

Right.... it's brekkie time for me and my daughter Emma... then we're off to Harrogate to take a quick peek around the sales!

Big hugs to all.... and big thank you's for following me and taking time to comment...  I look forward to 2013 with lots of blogging friends sharing their fabulous creations - it makes the world a nicer place!

  8. Wonderful tags Christine, I do love that poinsettia :o)
    It's amazing how some peeps turn into animals when it come to last minute Christmas shopping and sales but luckily I never saw any of that kind of behavior in the store where I work!
    Have a wonderful New Year :o)

    I have to agree with your hubby, i noticed this year that some people seemed so rude and angry and tutting the day after boxing day that we hadn`t had a new delivery.ah well i just smiled sweetly :D

  11. Fab tags Christine; love the Kraft against the red poinsettias.

    It's crazy the way people behave for the sake of two days!! Before I trained to be a teacher I worked in a supermarket (Kwik Save - remember them?!) I remember people taking turkeys out of other shoppers' trolleys when we ran out and then running to the checkouts to pay before the poor shopper noticed! Madness!

    Have a very happy new year!

  12. Wow Christine! Those are some beautiful tags! Love the pretty Poinsettias! Happy New Year!
