Tag Cards

What a pants day today weather wise! It's been dull, damp and drizzly all day - just the right sort of day to head to Southampton, and specifically Ikea (for Alex) and John Lewis for me. We managed to sort out some birthday gifts for Alex (for next Monday, cutting it a bit fine!) and the rest she is having in cash towards a camera that she will need for her A level Art Photography course.

The last time I did some crafting, I made several cards, and here are another couple of them! I like that these combine two of my favourite things, tags and cards (three if you count the kraft card too!) I have managed to resist making tags for a while now, although it was a serious obsession for a little while!

So, why is it that when you have the time and opportunity to craft, you don't always feel like it, but when your OH has taken off two weeks and we are holidaying at home, my mojo is bursting, and I can't get into my Crafty Corner? We have spent two days at the beach so far, and today shopping in Southampton, so I'm not complaining ...
