TAG! I'm *IT*!! Round 3...Curtain Call: Christmas Countdown, Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge #102

Hi!
Two more weeks before our Christmas-New Year break begins and I am soooo counting down the days (12 to go...)!  Between now and then, my husband will be working full-tilt, with no weekend breaks in sight until the one following Christmas.  He may have a day or two off during the week, but even that time will be filled with wrapping up the first semester of his Leadership course.  Busy man, indeed. In the meantime, yours truly will carry on doing what I can to cover the bases for him at home and, of course, carrying on crafting.  I'm waiting, in what is now unbridled anticipation, for some Black Friday purchases to arrive in my mail box.  Excited...new goodies (on top of some "old" new goodies that are still in their packaging)!  I think that's why I'm sort of 'stalling' in my tag-creating enterprise...waiting for new-comers to make their arrival.  Did I mention: my sister-in-law's original request for 70 tags is now up to 90... LOVE it!!  As of today, I have 40 done...only 50 more to go (which is great, because now I can decide on 5 more 'different' sets to make...need to keep the mass producing interesting).

So, with that little 'countdown' info as a preamble, I'm sharing Round 3 of my tags, focused on my favourite Christmas word:  Joy.  They're heading off to Curtain Call: Christmas Countdown 


and, because they were all made with snippets of this and that, to Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge #102.

Here they are:  my little tags that I hope will bring Joy to sister-in-law's staff and volunteers:




Aren't the little bears on these last two cutie-patooties! 

Round #4 is done, so I'll be posting them soon. Today's goal is to decide what Round 5 will be.  So many possibilities. Hope that some happy mail arrived!

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

I'm so enjoying seeing your sets of tags, Carol ... each beautifully co-ordinated and delicious! These are a delight ...' joy' is one of my year round favorite words, so I'm loving these completely ... fab backgrounds (yep, cutie patootie polar bears!) and yummy snowflakes in the 'joy'! Enjoy playing with all those new goodies ... look forward to seeing the next inspiring set! Anita :)

Up to 90 hey?!! Love the shape of these ones - it looks to me like it is a beautiful, old-style door that opens to a house full of JOY! Perfect for Christmas! Can't wait to see what's next!!! xoxo :)

Marisa said...

I just LOVE that JOY die!! you have used it wonderfully here. Thanks for joining us at the Curtain call too :) If you don't have Reverse Confetti's tag die coming your way you NEED it for Christmas, along with PTI tag dies wink, wink :)

Jennifer Jackson said...

Yay! More fun tags! Love the "joy" die cut - and what a great way to use up some holiday paper scraps! super cute!

Marisa said...

How fun you know Noel C!! Biathalon is a small world so figured you may know him. Those PTI shipping rates are insane, aren't they!! I have a US PO Box that I ship things to as we are near the border. If I remember, I'll give you a heads up when I do a PTI order and you can add it to mine and then I'll mail them out to you.

Marisa said...

Now I have Noel intrigued LOL! I don't know your names or dates when you may have worked at events etc. to pass on to him so if you are ok with sharing, he'd love to remember you :)

KayM said...

Oh how absolutely adorable!! These tags are wonderful! And yes! There's that little WPlus9 snowflake that I didn't know I had! haha! Thanks for pointing that out :)

MichelleZ said...

You have been a busy lady! I'm loving all of your tags. I recall an earlier post where you mentioned making all of them. And now it's 90? Wow! And they're all darling too! She is going to be so excited when she sees how cute they are.

Mrs A. said...

These are pretty tags . The Joy die is perfect for them . Do you have any Noel ones! Hugs Mrs A.

Geri said...

90....9 - 0....ninety....correct? And you're over-the-moon excited....WOW.

I would be lying on the couch weeping right about now! Good for you! You're one heck of an incredible, sweet, and hard working gal!

These tags are sooooo cool! Just to come up with the mixing and matching would likely drive me to drink (more coffee that is). Love the details on each tag - two base layers that are perfectly matched; a snowflake and sentiment that work with the base layers and a beautifully and oh-so-appealing design.

Doesn't it feel great to do something like this for someone near and dear to your heart? I bet it does!

Happy Dance said...

Awww! These are so cute! You've done it again -- made an entire group of wonderful little tags. This hobby is so addicting, but in such a wonderful way! Love the snowflake right smack dab in the middle of 'joy'. Perfect fit! You go girl, and can't wait to see your next grouping!! Bev
