Merry Little Christmas



Someone at church once said to me they didn't like the saying "Merry Christmas", it meant folks having a drink and having fun not a thing she approved of  being a  Methodist  who signed the pledge. I love the saying and I love this tag , it also reminds me of the Judy Garland film "meet me in St Louis" when she sings that beautiful heart warming song.

The tag is home for Christmas by do craft as are the stamps I used to create the background paper to my stamp.I stamped and inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress inks.  The felt snowman ,the lace trim and the snowflake are all from Hobby Craft.

Challenges entered :
DYSU: flags or tags
The poodles parlour : tag your it!
creative stamp friends : new stamps (mines the home for Christmas stamps)
stamping Sisters in Christ : use something hand made  (mines the background paper)
Bunny Zoe Crafts : distressing


Our neighbour Anthony, who is bike mad, hired this mean machine for his girlfriends Birthday, they went to Llandudno on it, but before they went he gave our whole family a go. We loved it, not scary as it doesn't go to fast and really lovely the wind blowing through your hair (you don't need a helmet,) but they wore them for the long drive.
My Bob is pictured on the back in his Post Office uniform. Imagine delivering letters on one of these ...cool.
enjoy the rest of Sunday.janex

ah Jane love this have not been over for ages doing some catch up and if you like merry and are thinking happy (not old meaning of drunken) I am sure it is just fine; we answer to the Lord not one another in all things, thankfully! however my mother hated the word too so perhaps it is a generational thing, after all? God bless, Shaz in Oz.x
