Tag You're It! #5

 Hi!  I hope you are having a great day!  Maybe getting ready for a big weekend?  Wow did this week fly by or what?  My DH had Monday off for Labor Day and then took an extra day (Tuesday) for an extended holiday weekend.  Not too shabby huh?  A three day work week? We went to an Arboretum about an hour from the house.   They had a little petting zoo for the kids there - and we were able to bring Moriko with us.  Well she is our little child isn't she?  Yes!  Dogs are allowed to visit.   She is already 4 months old and very curious.  She saw her first chicken - that she growled at, and later a little piglet.   They were nose to nose through the fence, and Moriko seemed ok with that.  Strange huh?  Maybe she thought they were related or something??  LOL!!  The mosquitos got so bad we had to practically run for the car.  Do you remember the old "OFF" commercials where they would have some poor fool stick his arm in a glass box filled with mosquitoes.   Yep!  It was like that - maybe worse.  I was thinking more of a scene from The Strain!  LOL!!

Did you see?  I was the lucky girl that won Tag You're It!  last challenge so of course I had to come back and play again.  I really do love this tag challenge.  They come together quick and each one is a bitty work of art.  Here's the inspiration tag from Donna Mikasa.   I'll tell you the truth... I have a bit of a crush on Donna.   She has such beautiful style!

I kept with the kraft paper background with white stamping, and a layering of pretty die cuts. A colored eyelet and a pretty bow and I'm done.   This was lots of fun and I'm happy to have some pretty tags in my stash to dress up a quick gift.  Maybe you need a few tags too?  I hope you will come and play!!

Stamps:  WPlus9 Very Vintage Florals, Fresh Cut Containers
Dies:  WPlus9 Label, Fresh Cut Containers
Card Stock:  PTI White, Kraft
Ink:  WPlus9 White, Fresh Impress
