Tag, You're It!

Hello Stampers and welcome back to The Classic Card! 

The bad news... I missed 4 days of blogging last week, due to Thanksgiving and the fact that our three grandchildren and their parents from Seattle have been with us since last Wednesday.  The good news... we survived their visit and are now busily putting our lives (and home) back in order.  It may take awhile, as they just departed this morning.  Oh. My. Goodness!  I'm pretty sure God knew what he was doing when He gave me two fairly mild-mannered little girls.  I'm not sure I would have survived twin boys, especially in twin boys in the "terrible twos."  Add in one busy five-year-old and you have a three-ring circus for sure.  I feel a little older this morning.  Hopefully I'll recover soon.

Meanwhile, let's get back to stamping, shall we?  I'm more than ready!  Today I have something to show you that will come in handy in the weeks ahead... something we all need.

These fun gift tags are made with two great stamp sets that are both in the big catalog.  The one in the lower right that says "Even the naughty deserve something nice" is from the Tags 'til Christmas set on page 32.  The rest of the tags are from the set Sweet Season on page 35.  Tags are even quicker to make than cards and they are a great way to use up all of those card stock scraps that  you've been accumulating.  Add some of our cute Baker's Twine (p. 194) and you are ready to add these sweet hand-stamped tags to all of your holiday gifts. 

Here's another fun idea...make up a batch of tags, slide them into a cello bag (p. 181), tie with one of Stampin'Up!'s great ribbon (p. 194-195) and you have a fabulous hostess gift to take to a holiday party! 
That's it for today, stampers!  I've got a LOT of cleaning to do!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll look forward to seeing you back here Wednesday (Tuesday is my day to watch my 3 month-old granddaughter) for another classic card!

PS.  Don't forget that today is Cyber Monday... the day that millions of shoppers go online to shop for Christmas gifts.  Stampin'Up! is having a big sale, so be sure and check it out at
