Tag You're It - Meadow Greens



Hi!  How is everyone doing?   I'm doing good!  Trying to get in a new routine - trying to get my house work and shopping out of the way in the morning, take a break for a few hours, and then get dinner going in the afternoon.    I never realized how much I hate grocery shopping before.  I'm going to blame that on winter.   It's so cold here!  Scrape the windows, get the car started to get a little heat, run into the store, face the cold loading up the trunk, and then unpacking!    I guess I don't have to worry about the ice cream melting.  Now I worry about the lettuce freezing!  LOL!!


A new challenge begins today at Tag You're It!  The sample this time is from my good friend Marybeth Lopez!    Marybeth always amazes me with her clean designs that have just the right amount of bling and detail that they don't look simple at all.  I tried to CASE Marybeth today and actually if you look close, I have less layers than she does!  Go figure!    I started out by stamping my sentiment right on the card base and then layered on some stamped die cuts with adhesive foam tape.   
A wrap of twine and a sprinkle of sequins and BAM!   I'm done!  I'm really happy with this one.   See - you can teach an old dog a new trick!
Now it's you're turn!  It's Tag You're It so you can turn this into a tag, or CASE Marybeth and make a card!  Whatever you decide, just have fun!   I hope I see you there!!

What--someone used more layers than you? Well, then you'd better get on it, cannot let someone top you in the layers game! (haha) This is just stunning. I have always loved this stamp and die set, and your design is such a pretty and fresh way to use it. I have pinned it so I can make one just like it.
