Tags for Tag Tuesday Xmas swap

Hi you all, hope you are all feeling well and fit. I am still feeling really bad here, but I still have hope that sooner or later it will be better. The side effects of the medis are rather devastating, too, with fingers shaking faster than I can think and jelly legs, but it can only get better!

I joined in with the  Xmas tag swap over at Tag Tuesday, and have thankfully managed to get my tags made, but I now realise how lucky I usually am to be able to coordinate brain and hands without problems. I wouldn't have managed anything if I hadn't had the lovely die-cut tags from Donna, as I can't work the big-shot just now. I distressed the tags with gold ink and then decorated with everything I could find. I would have liked to have done more stamping etc, but perhaps next year....





I needed the best part of 2 days to get them done, so I will have to wait and see if I get anything else done this year! For now I just need to rest.

Thanks for visiting, stay well, and have fun!
