What a great stamp set and a beautiful card.

Mine was as a child being given a manicure set for a gift to stop me biting my nails. Ouch!

I love a blog hop!! The most embarrassing gift I ever received was a combination scarf/hat. I was in my 20s and to this day, I am confused as to why someone would give me that gift!!

Cute card Beth!

Embarrassing gift? Uh..how about a BIRDHOUSE. LOL..with a 10lb bag of bird seed. Not really embarrassing I guess...but super confusing...given my affliction and all. LMAO!

Beate said...

Have a great weekend!

The "Mary Tyler Moorewear" I got one year for Christmas. A velour "lounging suit". It was horrible. And it was from my MIL so I had to just smile. Someday, ask me about the patent leather purse she got to go "with" it. LOL!

Lillian Child said...

What a sweet holiday card - I love putting tags on cards, especially holiday ones!

Patty from FL said...

Love the Christmas tags! Your card is beautiful!

I love these tags.

My most embarrassing gift - I had just had a baby Dec. 20th and we were poor. I asked my dh for a nursing gown. Simple, right? Well, instead he got me this one piece (think Dr. Denton) pjs with a big zipper up the front, a hood and a place to stick your hands in the front. The worst part? It was a camel color, so I pretty much looked like a kangaroo! I hated it! He returned it and got a case of disposable diapers for me instead. Lovely, eh? Sometimes he hits a homerun, sometimes he strikes out! lol

Nice tags and card. My most embarrassing gift was from my son when he was 4. It was my birthday and there were people here and he wrapped up a condom. He thought it was a balloon. Was my face red!!!

Stephanie said...

Monique said...

Great Christmas card.. I love this tag set :)

Deb said...

So adorable, Beth!

I think the most embarrassing gift I ever got was a very risque' negligee I got for a wedding gift...wasn't the gift so much, but the person it came from! I would have expected it from one of MY friends, but never from one of my MOTHER'S!

MaGoooo said...

My most embarrassing gift was a garbage can????

Diane said...

These tags as so cute. I can't say I Have every received an embarassing gift.

Tanya said...

Your card is too sweet! What a fun set, would be used so much during the holidays. My most embarrassing gift would be a couple of new bras as a teenager with my brother sitting there when I opened it, ewww.

Krissy said...

very cute! I would love to get this set good and inky!

Pam and Presley said...

Cute card.

Most embarrassing gift I have received was: on my 16th birthday a very very skimpy frilly pair of panties (gag gift) that I opened up in front of everyone!
Pam

Was my face red and I was speechless!!

AShu93 said...

I can't think of any gift that was embarrassing - maybe clothes that were too small?

mackbrad said...

When I was a pre-teen my mom gave me an electric razor so I could shave my legs - not sure why I was embarrassed but I was .......

This stamp set is great - I know someone who loves homemade tags!

Gale Varland said...

The tags are quite cute. My most embarrassing gift. My mom always gave us undies in our stocking. A couple of years into her alzheimers, she gave me undies, some of her old used ones!

Cute card and great tags. Fortunately, I don't believe I have ever been given an embarrassing gift ......... at least not that I remember.

Tracy said...

This is a great stamp set. You can do lots with it.

Teri said...

Well, I was young and innocent, but when my mother-in-law threw me a bridal shower and I opened a box with the sexiest nightie (black and red and barely there)well, I was totally embarrassed! I got over it very quickly though.... He he he!

Deborah Anton said...

Great use of the set! Love all the snowflakes!

Sue D said...

I can't think of an embarassing gift but I do remember when my mother-in-law gave my husband a razor and shaving cream because she didn't like his beard.

I love the tags! Once I received a purple animal print sweater. It was so "not me". I was embarrassed just thinking about wearing it.

Connie said...

I can't think of one specific embarrassing gift, but my mom was good at buying us clothes that were out of style (things SHE liked) and we had to wear them. I didn't want to hurt her feelings so I never asked to return my clothes.

Hope I win this adorable stamp set! I can see lots of great projects to make with it!

Very sweet!!

What a fun set to use for cards as well as fun packaging.

Gailanne said...

Most embarrassing gift I ever received? Probably the long flannel nightgown made for me by my MIL when I was newly married. Long sleeves, high neck, long to the floor. I remember turning red when I caught my new hubby's eye!

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

Great tags, and everyone can use those!!

Kathy H said...

CUTE!

Michele said...

I know I am too late, but had to tell you how cute this set is! I didn't actually have an embarrassing gift, but a fellow coworker (teacher) did. She had received a gift from a student. We generally open the gifts up in front of the kids, so she did....and lo and behold, she held up a lacy nighty! Apparently, the dad must have picked it out! LOL!
