I Want To Hold Your hand.

Just thought I would show you this little tag I made using WINTER POST from Stampin up, I just love this set for all year round as it has the postcard header, which is so useful.
been away for a few days to York my husband and son did  the York dungeon's, didn't fancy that so I had a whole day shopping, didn't find any craft shops, no doubt there were some just never fell across them.
so back to the slog and a bit of blog, going to check out what you have all been doing now! hugs Chris xx

Hi Chris,
Long time, sorry....Took a bit of time out plus PC's been playing silly mare with me, I don't know where to begin with sorting it, so send out SOS to Hubby...lol
I thought I had a virus but Hubby assured me it's just the battery in the PC...It's all gibber Jabber to me, the graphics card is on its way out too, Petes done a quick fix but as long as it holds out till after the NEC, thats fine by me....I really wasn't looking forward to a huge PC repair bill...The NEC is coming shortly and I want to save as much as I can.
Hope you had a lovely time away, even if you didn't find any crafty haven's...I love your tag, gorgeous design and colours...Another fabulous job Chris....
Catch up again soon, take care

Welcome back Chris.

Bit worried if you did not find any craft shops, are you losing your touch I wonder ?

Do like your tag, just got some craft card as quite liking the look of it.

See you Saturday.

Happy Days said...

Hi Chris

Shopping in York, what a joy - shame you didn't find any craft stores though :)

I love this tag and all of the detail on it - I think I maybe on a quest to find this stamp now (although with the NEC next week maybe I should just admire what you've done with it and put it on my wish list).

Take care
Claire x

Jules said...

Hi Chris

Welcome home!!

So pleased you have had a good time away .. .. shame about the lack of craft shops :-(

Must admit if we are going anywhere the first thing I do is google to see what craft shops are there (and en-route LOL!!).

Hubby and I had planned to go to York earlier this year but plans went a bit "off course".

Sorry - I have gone "off course" too .. .. I am meant to be commenting on your lovely creation.

Love your tag very much and your song title too. If it was me I would want to do more than hold someone's hand .. .. I would need a skating zimmer!! Do they do such things?!?!? Perhaps I should go to the Dragons Den with one LOL!!

Catch you again soon matie.

Love Jules xx

What a fab tag Chris, I love how you have made it. The whole vintage style is gorgeous and the postcard header just superb.
Glad you had a good time away, I haven't been to York to spend time there, but a whole days shopping sounds therapeutic, no distractions and no-one to move you on, great.
Take care. Luv B xxx

Hi Chris and oh, this is gorgeous and kraft coloured card and red and green...perfect :).
