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"!
