A Happy little Tag.....

So how is your week going so far?   
Can you believe the weekend is almost here already.
Do you have any big plans. This weekend I plan to hang out and relax.
And hopefully get some crafting done.

I did have some fun yesterday making this little tag..
I just love these colors..  It is such a happy color. 
don't you agree.. 




I got the color scheme from a CR84FN color challenge. 
They always have yummy colors to work with.. 
Thanks Mona. 



I have been having fun with this burlap lately. 
and you know I just love to add a little lace also.. 



I started this tag on cream card stock and used all kinds of 
Tim Holtz mustard seed distressed ink.  And also some Walnut stain distressed ink.
My bird cage and bird is a rub-on..  and then I stamped the word dream..  


Now about these flowers they are for another challenge going on
over at Gingersnap creations. The challenge is to use Baby wipes on your project.. 
Yep, I made these flowers from baby Myles wipes. 
I used my sizzix cutter to make them..  And then used yellow paint to color them.
 I am definitely going to make them again.
I just love the way they turned out..   


So there you have it another Tag. 
I haven't made one in a little while and was having withdraws.. Hee Hee.. 


So to get the details on the fun color challenge over at CR84FN

Thats all I have for now ladies.. I just want to say thanks so much for 
stopping by. I really do appreciate it. 

Hugs, Linda

It's beautiful, Linda... and baby wipes!!!! Who would know? So gorgeous!!!
I've been so busy this week I can't even think of the weekend. The Penmaker and I took a trip up to Akron then on to Cleveland today... Michaels, Archivers, Hobby Lobby, Pat Catans and Woodcraft. I'm totally wore out from shopping and from stopping at Starbucks (am hooked on Peppermint Mocha).
Have a wonderful evening!
