From the archives

So today I have a couple of tags from the archives to show you. I have some new work to photograph and post, but at this time of year, getting the right natural light to take decent pictures  is hard. It is dark when I leave at 6:20 for work and dark enough by 4 p.m. not to be able to get a decent shot. Hopefully this weekend I can squeeze in enough light to get those photos taken.
I love this tag on the top here-love the black and white background (Tim Holtz/Stamper's Anonymous) and how it is so much like a vintage newspaper add. The flower is Darcy's and the card is from October Afternoon. By the way- have you seen that October Afternoon offers Santa Sacks on their blog? Pretty good deal if you don't mind taking a chance to see what you will get. 

This tag has green inked background and some dark green pine images stamped (also Tim Holtz/Stamper's Anonymous). Then I embossed some heavy clear plastic packaging.  Snowflakes they are die cuts from Cheery Lynn Designs and the ornament is from Sizzix. I added the 2 punched deer (Martha Stewart) and the gemstone heart and the little oval die cut (Sizzix) with the word stamped on it.
So last night's hockey game was SOOOO painful. Maine got a goal with 5.8 seconds left in the game to tie 2-2 but then the refs disallowed it as they said there was interference and contact with the goalie. Didn't look bad to me...(OK, I am biased), but it was one of those emotional roller coasters-from an exciting high thinking we would go into overtime to down in the dumps when we lost. Another game. Sigh! Maine is doing so BADLY! this year. And we made the NCAA's last year. Goes to show you how little it takes to change the results.
One a happier note-we are heading out to get our Christmas tree today. It is COLD!!!!! Brrrrrrr! Will bundle up but will be a nice way to spend a cold Saturday afternoon and evening, drinking tea and putting up our tree in a nice warm house since the wood stove is cooking away.
You know it is suppose to be in the 50's tomorrow? Can't even hit 30 today.
Once again- just like with hockey games, it doesn't take much to change the way things go.
Stay warm.
Have fun.
Enjoy your Saturday.
