A Nice and Relaxing Day....

I have been just lounging around all morning playing in my
craft room.  I have a couple of little projects to show you!
This first one is for this weeks Tag Tuesday

The Challenge is a "Man" theme, Which I think I might
have taken the wrong way!  Another Blond moment...Hehe
I just made my tag for a man.  But I did not put a Man on
my Tag...   Either way this is what I came up with.
I really want My Man to use it as a Book Mark so there
are no embellies on it!  That was hard for me.
I really don't think my Man wanted lace on his tag!

I just love this little Bible Verse.  I have it written in a
little book full of my favorite quotes.  I thought it 
went perfect with this Tag!   Yes I know you
can tell I drew that lovely tree.. You can stop
Laughing now.  So now you see why I play
with paper instead of drawing..

This next card is a Fathers Day card for my Father-In-law.
The sketch is from One Stop Craft Challenge! O.K. I could have
used that man on my Tag but he was already taken. And
I'm sure some of you know were he is from..
Graphic 45..  I just love there stuff! 

I hope you got time too play around and
enjoy the day!
Thank for visiting me and I hope the rest
of your week goes well!

Hugs, Linda

Linda, I think your tag and especially the tree turned out beautiful! You are too hard on yourself! I had forgotten you told me you drew the tree until you just said so in your post, so you see it looks great! Maybe you should draw some more swirls on the branches. Your photos look great too.

Wow, Linda, both the man card and the man tag are gorgeous. I especially like the swirly tree. I don't know if you were kidding or what, but if it is a stamp, it is a beautiful one. If you drew, I am extremely impressed with your talent.

Thanx for stopping by and seeing BEAR and me!

I think they are both wonderful and I'm sure the men in your life will be smiling too! I love the verse!

Wendy said...

Great tag. Love the bookmark idea. And don't knock yourself, I love your tree. I thought it was a stamped image.

Lynn Stevens said...

Hi Linda, Two awesome Manly cards I don't think your tag needed a man just for a man and you did it wonderfully! Their both going to Love them!

Linda, I didn't think you had drawn the tree until you mentioned it in your post. That is a fabulous verse. I think your idea to create a tag "for" a man is a fabulous one. Well done!

Cheryl Nelson said...

Absolutely gorgeous creations! That tree is absolutely spectacular!

Jacqueline said...

Beautiful tag Linda!! If you had not said you had drawn the tree I would have taken it for granted that it was a lovely stamped image! I also love the verse and think its a great idea as a gift like this!

Geri said...

Both projects turned out great but I LOVE the tag. I love everything about it.
