Another quick post from me today. I think that's going to be the case until all the cards I need get made and sent. Wait. What? Do I hear a lot of you breathing a sign of relief that my posts aren't going to be "two coffees" long?!! 😇
First up, I'm delighted to be asked by my dear and very talented friend Loll to be her Guest Designer for Day Ten of her Twelve Tags of Christmas event!
Here is my tag:
The base of my tag is a piece of glossy paper covered in bold and vibrant alcoholic inks. The die allows all those jewel-toned colors to peek through the openings. The PTI greeting was embossed in platinum on vellum.
If you haven't already, I hope you'll be able to join Loll's fun and inspirational event. In addition to tag inspiration, I get a lot of design ideas for making cards from the tags that are made by Loll, her guest designers, and the fabulous gallery! The details can be found on Loll's blog: Stamping With Loll.
Thank you, Lolly, for the pleasure of being a guest designer!

I'm also entering the BOW challenge at Addicted to CAS.
Real quick. I have to share this with you! Last week my friend Brenda sent me an email telling me she had received my postcard from Wales and how surprised she was that I had gone back to the UK and why hadn't I told her I was going? Wait. What?
I was as amazed as she was since I hadn't just been to Wales ... but I was there over a year ago, which meant she just now received the postcard I mailed to her in July of 2016! I know Indiana is a long way from Conwy, but that's ridiculous!
She said it wasn't the least bit bedraggled, which makes me want to launch into a whole
Enjoy the Hops and enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*
