Brown paper packages.....

tied up with string.....these are a few of my favorite things. Did I put a tune in your head, it was ringing in mine while I created the wrapping for these packages. They are going to my nephews but my sisters check my blog so.....I can't divulge the contents.
It was tough to get a good photo as these packages didn't fit in my white photo shoot box. Oh well.

This is my last post before Christmas, as my kids and hubby are now officially on holidays and I have been looking forward to spending some time with them. We have been playing a lot of "tag team" during this season, running from one event to another.

A little about these tags. I stamped the letters in alpine mist brilliance ink and the snowflakes in white chalk ink. Then I embossed them in detail ep. I then took my versamark pen and added some "snow" outline to my letters and embossed again. I then took my beige brilliance pad (for Jude) and my coffee bean pad (for Josh) and rubbed it over the entire surface. I then took a cloth and rubbed off the extra ink on the resist areas. Looks really pretty IRL.
My nephews are 4 and 1 so I don't think they will appreciate these but I think their mom's will.
I used Papertrey's "snowflake serenade" and A Muse "letter alphabet" to stamp these tags.
I want to say a HUGE MERRY CHRISTMAS to all my readers, some of you e-mail me and I have been blessed with many "blogger" friends this past year.
My wish for you is that you can join me in slowing down a little and enjoy Jesus, the reason for this season.
God's Blessings to you all!

So crafty that I can't even see how large the package is and therefore can't guess the contents! Very nicely done and I can't wait to see what's inside!
