More Tags and Spam

Good morning everyone ...
It's frosty and cold here in the UK ... the temperatures have dropped to below freezing these past few nights ...
I am still working like crazy to get things done before I head off to Lincoln ... Seems the more cards and tags I make ... the more I need!
I finished my last week at the Thursday Club last night and all my overseas packages have been mailed ... The Royal Mail made a fortune from me I can tell you!

Today I am going to have lunch with my GF's and exchange Christmas gifts ... just in case I don't get the chance again this year ... I am praying that the Pennines will be passable in the next few weeks ...
Here are some more of my tags for this year 


I think these would look good on the gifts for the men 



I am also cutting and stitching stuff to take and make whilst I am away ... I will be on my own for a few days whilst my Aunt is in the hospital so I need something to keep me occupied.

Before I go ... I have been getting hundreds of Spam comments lately ... all from the same place ... I have changed my setting to try and stop this so would you please let me know if you have any problems  either viewing my blog or leaving comments ... I really don't want to have to use word verification unless I have to.
Thanks so much ...

Have a lovely day ... keep safe

Your tags are fabulous, Ros. I love your little sprigs and the gold buttons.
I've been getting lots of spam, too...all from the same sender. That's one of the reasons I have comment moderation...they are a nuisance! x

Sylvia said...

Love your tags, Ros, the thought that you have mailed your packages is wonderful even if expensive. I will hope for good weather so you can be home for Christmas. as for the spam, try blocking the IP address and just keep blocking and hopefully they will go away! Have a wonderful Friday and visits with the GF.

I love how you mass produce these beautiful tags... love the paper, red/white twine, the glittered banner and button... that bit of pine is the perfect finishing touch! Have a great lunch/gift exchange today!

These are wonderful tags...Joans Gardens is having a tag challenge...you should enter them there...I have been getting lots of spam from the same older posts, so I deleted those posts...hated to, but they were so back I figured it didn't matter...but it cut down on most of it...

GORGEOUS tags Ros! Love them!

I've had a bunch of spam comments too.. started a little while ago. They drive me nuts too. but I just delete them before they are published. I'm like you, don't want to have to use word verification either.

Jacqueline said...

Gorgeous tags!! Having no trouble commenting but it seems a problem that is popping up everywhere, these spam comments. Usually the filter shouldn't let them through.
Hope you will have a lovely time in Lincoln! Take care!

These are wonderful Ros and would indeed look great on gifts! I know what you mean about card making, I'd love for a day to have 48 hours ;-)
Hope your aunt will be fine. Hugs, Ira x

Hi Ross, love these tags, very clever and yes they would work well for men.

Spammers are a pain, sad really, they obviously don't have a life! I have no problems either seeing your blog or commenting, so whatever you did, it works for me!

WOW Ros! What gorgeous tags! Thanks for the inspiration :)

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

What beautiful holiday tags there!
I got my package done too, just haven't go to the post office.

I got like 20 comments few weeks ago on one of my post that link up to Moxie Fab world, I am sure that "coward" found me from there, because it only appeared on that particular post, and it is anonymous, that is why he/she is a coward, don't even have a name.
I had to delete them one at a time, it was painful!

Barbara said...

Ros, I think these tags are fabulous. Love the touch of greenery...genius! Hope you manage your journey without problems....Pennines are bad, whatever the weather, but sooooooo beautiful ;) Best wishes to your Aunt x

Chris said...

Fabulous tags. The little pine sprigs and vintage style buttons are a lovely touch.

Sorry to hear you're having problems with a spammer. Hope it stops soon.

Have a great weekend.

Tracy said...

Oh my goodness! man or woman, these tags are beautiful! So neatly put together. :-) Best wishes to your aunt and I'm so sorry you're having spam problems. :-( Hugs!

Heidi said...

Pretty design:)

Sandy Ang said...

they are so stylish and elegant ! sorry you've been spammed, it's definitely a pain

Barbara said...

These tags would probably work for everyone but I agree: they are perfect for the guys!
As for the SPAM question: I do have trouble commenting about 7 out of 10 times. The connection to Blogger doesn't work , it goes "Oops, we are having a problem" and the comment is gone. I've started copying it before I send it so I can easily reproduce it.

Thea said...
