TAG! I'm *IT*! Round 2...Just Us Girls: One Layer Project with a Winter Theme

Hello,

It's minus 27C (-17F) which means it's flippin' cold. My car doors wouldn't shut properly this morning, because the latches were frozen, so although my drive is short, images of tumbling out the door and landing in a snow bank kept me rather sketched out. Actually, that happened to my cousin years and years ago, back when we were kids and when seat belts weren't mandatory...driving with my Grandpa on a wintry evening, when suddenly the back door flew open and out went my cousin, into a fluffy snowdrift.  My poor Grandpa..We just picked her up, dusted off her snow suit, got back in the car and drove back to the farm, as though nothing happened. Too funny...well, it is now.   Anyway, I digress...

In my excitement to create - for the first time ever I believe - a one-layer project, inspired by the Just Us Girls challenge,
I  failed to read the part about "winter theme."  Gahhh!    I'm on a 70 tags-to-make mission for my sister-in-law - working with bunches of 10 to keep me amused and entertained while doing so. I had batch 2 alllll figured out...and allllll done....and then I realized, after taking the photos and opening up the JUGS site, I kinda-sorta didn't focus on the winter theme as much as I should have.  Still, some of my one-layer tags (and another confession, technically they're not tags "yet".. rather post-cards meant to be turned into tags...), do have teesny weensy snippets of a 'winter' theme. Hmmm...am I convincing anyone?

Okay, Just Us Girls team: if I'm totally off base, let me know and I'll scuttle out of here. If the Christmas trees in the stamps of 6 "tags" fit the challenge, thank you!!

Anyway...freezing temperatures apparently have me more addled than usual.  Here's Round 2 of my tags:







Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

  3. It's wha wha wha what degrees?!!! Oh man, I guess I should stop complaining about how faaareeezing it is here (-1!). You poor thing. I know it wasn't funny at the time, but I sure did LOL over your cousin flipping out of the car, and how casually she was put back in the car like it was no event at all! Oh how times have changed!!! Love these sweet little posties! Totally winter themed, I might add :) With sweet little images in the stamps, and happy holiday greetings, I think you've met the criteria, and then some!!! Love 'em!!! STAY WARM!!!

  6. What a fun idea! I LOVE it...super postal friendly too!

    -17 and you actually leave the comforts of your warm home? Um, is that safe? This from the girl in washington state that had snow on the windshield the other day...I had to have my boy go back into the house for a spatula so he could scrape the snow off :)
