Hi well only a few more days to go ..hope you're all ready

These are some of the tags I made with the free die from  Die cutting Essentials and the Altenew free stamp & die flower from Simply Cards & Papercraft mags .The tag die was just what I needed & has a few layers so quite handy.
This is a small box I decorated using the same flower so it came in useful.

Any way that's it for this year ......thank you so much for all your comments & visits .......hope you'll call again in '17

to everyone &
