For several months I've had a "theme" running through my blog hop cards.  This month's theme is TAGS.  Today's set of small images was perfect for making tags for Christmas gifts.  Chances are good that I'm going make a few more of these before the holidays roll around.


I recently won a postage stamp die and thought I could use it for some of these small images.  So I made two strips of postage stamps -- one with the bluebird and one with the cardinal.  Then I had to figure out a layout for them.  Here's what I came up with:


The rest of the team has been busy creating with this set of cute little images.  Be sure to hop over to their blogs to take a look -- and don't forget to comment for a chance to win a free stamp set.
