Another week.....another tag....and my stash of tags for gift giving is growing! Each week for the first six months of this year Joan over at Joan's Gardens is hosting a Tag Challenge. I have been trying to play along each week to fill up my box with tags and my goodness it is working! You can go to Joan's and check out the details.
I started with a plain white tag and used Ranger Distress Inks to color it. Next I used a freebie from Hero Arts Digital (Friends). I printed it on regular typing paper and scrunched it up and distressed it and glued it onto my tag. Next layer was some of the seam binding that I distressed which I glued to the top of the tag just to accent it. Next came my homemade flower. I saw the instructions for this flower on YouTube; a video by Craftbrulee. I fell in love with these and decided to make my own and add my own little bit of me to it. I started out with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die and cut the petals out of plain white card stock. Then I stamped them with a word stamp and then I Distressed them and sprayed with Glimmer Mist. My corner is from Heartfelt Creations Perfect Petals Dies. I hope you enjoy this one!
Well that's it for me today....I've got lots to do....you know...the Suzy Homemaker Stuff! Its cold here, but we didn't get snow. For once you will not be hearing me whine because we didn't get snow! This latest storm was a terrible one and so many people involved; I'm grateful to be living in the South this time!
Have a wonderful day and remember, no matter what you are doing, take time to breathe!
