Just some cards

Happy new week everyone! I can't believe a whole week has gone by since my last blog post! The clock is definitely ticking very fast in my world lately. Lol! Must be just this time of the year. :) 
I have created a few cards (and tags) with the left overs from the MME 'All is Bright'  collection that I received in my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store this month.  I have so enjoyed working with this collection and I think I can safely say 'it's my favourite Christmas range this year'. 
Can you believe that the doily was fussy cut from one of the pattern papers?  It's so beautiful and delicate and looks so real.
A little close up of the TSS chipboard 'Merry Christmas'.  It's perfect for cards and so easy to alter.  I've applied two coats of Glimmer Mist to mine. 
For the next card I've fussy cut another image from one of the pattern papers.   I also love to use Kaisercraft Pearl strips on my cards.
I always admire the beautiful tags that some of my talented scrappy friends make, but have never actually tried to make any myself.  So, I decided it's time I have a go at it.  Here are the two tags that I managed to squeeze out.   I think I now have no paper remnants bigger than 2 x 2cm left! :)  
 A close up 'side view'. 
 ... and another one. :)
Before I go, I would like to share a fantastic give away by one of my scrappy friends, Kelly Foster.  It's her birthday today and she's giving this gorgeous pack of goodies away!  How awesome is that!  Please pop past her blog and follow the prompts to stand a chance to win.  You will find her post HERE.

That's all for today.  Hope you are all having a beautiful crafty time wherever you are.  Thank you so much for visiting me.
Until next time.

I was going to ask how you did your pearl, and now read about the Kaiser Pearl strips. Your tags and cards are gorgeous, love the dimension and of course the bird! I also really like the way you tied strands of twine, etc into your eyelet holes of the tags, its different and looks fantastic.
