More Tags

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well.

Just a quick post today,  it's my birthday, so I need to 
finish baking my cakes before my visitors arrive -

🍨 Happy Birthday to Me!🍨

Today I am sharing 2 more quick tags made for Joan's lovely 
theme at Tag Tuesday - Christmas memories. The
first was made from scraps of DCWV paper and a vintage
scrap Santa:

This was made with another scrap of DCWV paper, 
a decorative star and a die cut Xmas tree 
decorated with Stickles:

And some frozen and misty photos from the last
few days:

I'll share my birthday cakes with you in my
next post!

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!


  1. I love both of these tags so much! Especially the first one! And your ice crystals photos -- fabulous. Especially those berries. Swoon!

  2. Happy Birthday to you Valerie i hope you have a lovely day.
    I love your 2 tags,well done my friend and i love all your pics my friend xx

  3. Happy Birthday to you Valerie!!! Your Christmas tags are beautiful and glad you found some colour in the frozen landscape.

  4. Happy Birthday to you! I hope your day was spectacular and your cake was tasty. :)

    What lovely tags and photos. The trees and parts of nature with frost on them look so magical to me. Love them! :)

  5. Gorgeous tags and photographs. I hope you had a wonderful birthday celebration. Seasons Greetings xx

  6. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. happy birthday dear Valerie, happy birthday to you. Hope your little party was a fun celebration. And those icy and foggy photos are beautiful. I'm trying to find the good things about winter, and those are one. Hope you had a wonderful birthday. hugs-erika

  7. Alles zum Geburstag! The tags are wonderful. I'm partial to stars so like that one best. Jack Frost sure has been busy with his landscape paintings. Brrrr. Glad my cuppa is close at hand.

  8. Happy Birthday, dear. I can't wait to see all the cakes you will be making. I thought it was supposed to be the other way around and others baked for YOU. At least I'll know you have a party this year.

    Both your tags are brilliant. Of course, I LOVE the one with the tree. Speaking of trees, you had some ice. I got cold just looking at the photos. The frosty rose (I hope it was a rose) was an incredible shot.

    Again, happy birthday, dear.

  9. The photograph with the street lamps and people walking down the road makes me think of Narnia – so atmospheric and beautiful.
    Have a lovely birthday dear Valerie, and just in case I don’t get back before Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful time.
    Thanks for all your comments on my blog this year, I always look forward to hearing from you. Hugs Barbara
    PS your tags are just as beautiful as they always are.

    1. A lot of places here look like Narnia revisited, perhaps that's why I so much like living here.

  10. Happy Birthday Valerie, I hope you have a lovely day and I'm sure your visitors will be enjoying your delicious cakes. look forward to seeing the photos.
    The tags look beautiful and so do the wonderful atmospheric photos.
    Have a super day
