TYIC#18 Joy!

Happy Friday!  Friday's are becoming one of my favorite days of the week.  My daughter moved out a little over a month ago and I've had a hard time getting used to her being gone.  We're both adjusting and now Friday is "our" day.  We go out to lunch or do a little shopping, talk and "catch up".  It does my heart good to see her and know she is doing ok - it's too easy to fake it over a text message.  I want to look her in the eyes.  Who knew one day I'd be all maternal?  LOL!!
 A new challenge begins today at Tag You're It Challenge!  The inspiration this time is from DT member Nancy Penir!   I love Nancy's style.  She always adds lots of embellishments and little extras to catch my eye and make a project extra ordinary.  

Nancy put a tag on a card this time - you don't have to.  You can just make the tag if you like!  I always look at the inspiration photo and focus on the things I love, and then try to make it my own.   I loved the embossed background, colorful flowers and little dew drops on Nancy's design.  

Now for part 2- how to make it mine.   I decided to use lots of similar elements with a different color scheme.   Things I did the same..... Kraft tag.. "Joy" sentiment, die cut white background, and floral motif.   I even incorporated the little musical notes.  Things that are different.. I used sequins instead of dew drops (gosh I want them, but they never seem to be in stock when I'm ready to buy),  a rolled flower from pattern paper, and a  burlap cord tie.
This Blossom One die from Spellbinders is my favorite rolled flower die.  I cut it twice from double sided card stock and rolled one, then continued rolling with the second cut.   I love the ruffled edge on the petals that look more natural to me.    

Need a little more inspiration?   Just click here to jump to the Tag You're It Challenge and see what the rest of the team made.  You can also get all the details and link your projects there too!  We can't wait to see what you make!

Have a beautiful day!

My heart just goes nuts with excitement when I visit you. You already know that, but I just have the best time finding ALL your combinations of colors and designs. I absolutely love your rendition of the challenge. This is SO beautiful. I don't need to say it, but I will...I'm so grateful to hear that you and your daughter have a special day together. That's wonderful news!! Seems the older they get the tighter you want to hold them. I'm happy for you :)
Big hugs my friend,

This is a joy to look at! Loving all your beautiful and well thought out layers. I have always thought you and Nancy are the queen of layers. You will both have to share the crown. :)

Jeanne this is beautiful! You know how I am about yellow roses - but this pinky yellow rose is stunning! And that one little wood sequin helps tie the natural tones together!

Kara Lynne said...

Your card is gorgeous, Jeanne! I love the patterned paper rolled rose and that music staff is like a flourish! I'm so glad you're getting time with your daughter, I cannot imagine what that will be like, but the time will be here all too soon!

Jeanne, I'm overwhelmed with pride (puffed up like a peacock!) that you actually used my tag for inspiration! But no one comes close to you for ANY Inspiration! And running to Spellbinders to find that flower die! Must find the music die too! Did I mention this is gorgeous?!

And I forgot to say, have a wonderful day with your daughter! They grow to be a mom's best friends! Truly God's blessing on earth!

Jen Mitchell said...

Talk about eye candy! This is amazing from one end to the other! The way you doubled up the sentiment die, the musical notes, the beautiful flower - it's all mouth wateringly gorgeous!

Sharron said...

Wow, Jeanne, this is so gorgeous! The rose is stunning--love the color! The other elements are, as usual, just perfect!

Tracey McNeely said...

Jeanne your layered tag is beautiful and I haven't seen a rolled flower in a long time! Think that die needs to come out again sometime!
