A Tag in Purple...


Good morning everyone, it's Monday and raining here....whats that old song...Rainy Days and Monday's Always Get Me Down.   It is still a little early, but I am up and on my first  cup of coffee and I realized I didn't do the prep for my post this morning, so I took the picture and got started. 

I don't use purple much, but I do love it.  I found some purple design paper, I have no idea of the manufacturer and I covered my tag with it.  I used Dusty Concord  Ranger distress Ink to go around the edges of the tag and give it some dimension.  Next I cut the white border using HCD 713 Lace Border Die from Heartfelt Creations.  I glued this to the bottom of the tag and made a flower using HCPC 3438 Carnation Florals 2 PreCut Set (also from Heartfelt Creations)  Some pretty Spellbinders leaves  to showcase the flower were cut using the Foliage dies.  Next I took a doily and added some color and folded so it would stand up a little and then cut a butterfly using  Spellbinders Wonderful Wings dies.  I added some stickles and pearls to the butterfly and glued it to the doily.

I will be adding some pretty fibers or ribbon to the top before I tuck this little baby into a gift bag for a friend. 

So what do you have planned today? I've been doing some cleaning in my craft room so I guess I'll continue with that.  It seems like I'm always trying to find more better ways to store things.  Sometimes when I'm working, I look around and I have stuff everywhere.  How does that happen?  Who did that?   I'm not always sure who made this mess, but I know who has to clean it up!  So that is what I have planned for my day.  Have a great day and try to find a little time to play and as always, remember to "Breathe"!

I love your purple tag and I bet your friend will too!! Gorgeous flower! You make THE prettiest flowers!

It's rainy here too in NC today. My plans for the day include a little time in the studio this morning and then I have to go pick up my new glasses this afternoon... and I'll go by JoAnnes and Michaels while in town... it's an hour drive since we live out in the country. Hope your day is good!

Gorgeous tag, Glenda! Love the purples you used. It stormed here overnight, waking me up around 1:15. It is cloudy warmish at 50, but looks like we are into more rain as well. Have a lovely play day in your craft room.

Love the purple and the lacy die cut and flowers! Your tags are always the best. That paper is really pretty with the delicate hint of design.
