Tag You're It Challenge #8 - Fall


Hi and thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're having a great day.  I'm usually pretty quiet on the weekend.  DH says's its "family time" and anyone caught on the computer gets the "stink eye".  LOL!!  He ran off to work for a bit so as the saying goes.. while the cat's away.. the mice will play! And me?  Well..  I'm playing along with Tag You're It Challenge today!  I love making tags!   Because they're smaller they usually come together pretty quickly. 

There is a beautiful card inspiration from Lisa Arana this time.  I thought I'd stick with the tag all by itself - no card.  I'm working on building up my tag collection.  I like to bake when the weather is cold, it warms up the house and makes everything smell so yummy!!!  I also like to give away dressed up goodies.  Won't some fall leaves and acorns look pretty on a package of pumpkin bread? 
OK so I'm not a traditional girl - fall is an explosion of color and for me that can be ANY color!!!   I especially love purples in the fall.   I tried to keep some of the elements the same - like the striped tag background and the autumn theme.  I just had to switch it up a bit and make it my own. 
Tip:  To make the tag a little sturdier I attached the pattern paper to a sheet of card stock before I die cut the tag.
