Tag you're it, a pinch and a punch it's the first of the month!

The first of December, yikes, how did that happen?  Did you open your calendar this morning....what did you get? 
I'm saving mine till I get home from work.

Today whilst I'm busy I thought I would share a Christmas gift tag with you. 
I don't know about you but some years I am wrapping so many presents last minute that the tags tend to be a sheet of card and a nearby punch or sticky labels printed on the computer.  I know so bad and not very creative but sometimes needs must! 
This year I thought I'd make a couple of special ones with my Spellbinder dies......maybe next year I need to start in January and make lots.  (I say that every year and get later and later!) 
Oh to be an organised person.


For this tag I have used the new Metallic silver Distress stain, oh it is fab and works so quickly.  I have used two coats of stain on this bauble which is Spellbinder 2011 Heirloom ornaments.  I have layered on top dies from Asian Accents and Classic circles.  The sentiment is from Crafty Impressions and my edges are inked with Distress ink Black Soot.  Fibres and ribbon from my stash.

I love the metallic finish of these stains and even better they react with water too like other stains from the distress ink range.  As Miranda on TV would say "Such fun!"  You shall be seeing more of these beauties that is a promise.

That's all from me this Saturday I have a date with the TV, a M & S meal deal and a glass of vino....who will be crown King or Queen of the Jungle tonight?!  That is the question.
