Gift Tags "take 2"

Well, Halloween has come and gone.  Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner, yikes!  With the new grandbaby due any day I figured it was time to start on holiday stuff...the more I can accomplish early the more time I have to spend with Kipp and her new bundle of joy.  Yesterday Maya at Completely Coastal had a post on "nautical gift tags".  It reminded me of the tags I made last year and how a little coastal twist would be cool.  I got out my Cricut and cut a bunch of tags from card stock, then cut stars and anchors.  The anchors are not on any cartridge I have, rather free clipart from the internet I turned into an svg file using Inkscape and Sure-Cuts-Alot.  Those two tools turned my cricut into a very versatile machine...I don't need to rely on expensive cartridges anymore...I can cut almost anything I can dream up...so cool.  Anyway...here's what I came up with in about 15 minutes.  Thanks Maya for the nudge :)
