CAS-ual Fridays: Gift Tag {and Marcel's santa wisdom}

Happy, happy Friday...I'll be heading to Columbus today for work...and then the five o'clock bell will chime and it will be time for the weekend! I'm looking forward to it.  I hope you enjoyed the two week challenge with us. The blues cards were absolutely amazing!    We have a fun challenge for you this week, but before we get to it, let's chat about our sponsor this week, Bossy Joscie.


If you haven't pop over to the site before, please be sure to do so.  There are lots of awesome crafty goodies for you!

Now...onto our challenge today for CAS-ual Fridays.  It is another challenge to get you ready for the holiday.  Create a gift tag.  I have two tags to share with you today.   One using some new Craft's Meow stamps and the second using CAS-ual Friday stamps.  Two completely different looks.  I hope you like them both and can't wait to see your creations for the week!

And before I go...I need to share Marcel's santa wisdom :)  He made his Christmas list yesterday.  When I got home Pat was laughing when he showed it to me saying he wished he had a tape recorder.  Well...Marcel repeated his Santa list theory to me.  "You put the red guitar at the top of your list because Santa is very busy.  I really want the red guitar and he only reads the top of the list because there are millions of letters.  He doesn't really look at the whole list.  Sometimes you get lucky and he reads other parts of the list, but most of the time no.   But I really do get good things from Santa."  Needless to say we were having a good laugh about it...and we're thinking Santa better bring a red guitar!

  7. I love it! What a good life question, "What would be at the top of YOUR list?" It reminds me of a conversation in our class this week. "Be careful what you wish for." Some kids knew that phrase, but a lot didn't. I love explaining little sayings like that to them. Now, those tags are too precious! I hope the recipients treat them as such and keep them for bookmarks or something! Have a great little trip and a fabulous weekend :) hugs ox

  17. Both cards are adorable. Can't pick a favourite...

    Marcel is a genius. Seriously how clever? I always used to start my letter by asking how Mrs. Claus was doing. I figured if I was nice about his wife it would earn me brownie points. :)
