Deck the Halls

Dear Santa
Please, please, please will you bring me a new laptop this Christmas?  I’ve been a really good girl and made at least one tag every week for Tag Tuesday.  It would be a real shame if I can’t complete the challenge because of a broken laptop! love Jane xx

My first tag was made on time but my laptop is messing me about (turns itself off at inopportune moments) and I was unable to upload my photos. The manila tag is embellished with a little posy of holly, ivy and rosehips, all tied together with string.  On the tag I have written ‘tis the season to be jolly!  I used this tag to label a gift for my sister (some home-made sloe gin) I think it will indeed be the season to be jolly!

Not being able to upload pics till today gave me time for ideas for a second tag: 

For this one I used a pretty bit of an old Christmas card and mounted it onto some sheet music for ‘Deck the Halls’

On the other side I stuck some of the wallpaper I’ve been using for the last couple of weeks.  Five of you may recognise this because I also used it for my swap tags. It’s hard to see in the photo but there is lettering in white saying T T December 2012, together with a large snowflake, a circle of white holly leaves  and sequins.  It is finished with a silver ribbon.

I received my little bundle of swap tags today.  It was just like Christmas had come early!  They are all lovely and I can’t wait to show them.  Thank you for your lovely comments on my tag and Bailey, my mad dog last week! I hope my laptop allows me to see all your festive decorations this week.
Bye for now
Love Jane xx
