Christmas Tag Swap in August
Hello, hope you are all enjoying this fabulous Sunday. It's still hot in Los Angeles, so I'm keeping cool inside with the A/C on and re-runs of Criminal Minds on the tube. As my old boss used to say, "Nothing wrong with that."
A couple posts ago, I wrote about a Christmas tag swap that Kyoko was hosting for the month of August. We all received our swap partners and our instructions. I was paired up with Jenny V from Jenny's Creations. The rules were to make 3 identical Christmas tags, and send them to your swap partner to be received by the end of the month. This being my first swap, I played it safe by going with 3scalloped & regular circles, Christmas dp and a cute elf. The elf image I chose is from the Sugar Plums North Pole stamp set from C.C. Designs. I believe this is a retired set because I couldn't find it on their website.
The tags are 3 1/2" all the way around. I'm planning to send these out tomorrow so that Jenny, who lives in Hawaii, will get them this week. I really hope she likes them, I had fun making them. I'm looking forward to what Jenny will be sending me. Like I said, it's my first swap and I am so excited to be a participant. Maybe next month you'll want to play as well. Mahalo for stopping by this Sunday afternoon. Enjoy the rest of your day and have a blessed evening.
