Tag ........ you're it!


After one of the hottest Australia Day's I can remember I'm feeling just a bit limp and wilted!!!!
The pool was the place to be yesterday so not much crafting done.
I do have a tag I made for Joan's Tag Challenge here.
I promised myself I would try and enter more challenges this year and I am trying but with visitors in the house it's not easy!!!


I used the CPS # 202  layout for my tag.


Stamp is from AnnaBelle Stamps All Things Grow.
I started with an ordinary packing tag which I sponged before layering the card.
I punched the outside butterflies using a Martha Stewart Punch.
The centre one is a double mount from the same ABS clear stamp set, coloured with Copics and cut out.
A small drop pearl was added to each butterfly.
Distressed seam binding tied in a bow and set with a flower and punched swirl complete the tag.


 Thanks for taking the time to drop by today........I'll see you soon.....

How come you got summer?!! Heard it was hot - we were lucky to go above 22 here, but I like it like that, I must admit. Great tag. Now, tell me, what are you going to do with it? I look at them, and think about what I could do, and then the little practical one (who isn't ever around when you really need her) sits on my shoulder and says "What will you do with it when it is made?" I have few answers.

Your tag is so pretty and delicate. Love the little butterflies. I stuck some on my project this evening as well but I am trying to keep warm and waiting for a Nor'Easter to hit the Maritime Provinces here in Canada.:o)
Thanks for sharing your cute project and hope the weather is a little more pleasant tomorrow! :o)

Beautiful tag Sue! You can send some of that heat to Missouri, it's bitterly cold here, in the 20's. Oh what I'd give for some hot sun and to lay pool side. Enjoy your lovely weather. Good luck in the challenge. "Hugs" Carol
