Tag You're It - Sweet Love




Hi and thanks for stopping by!  Can you believe it's Friday already?    I hope you have a little down time this weekend to do a little crafting!  It's my favorite way to wind down from a busy day.  Just a little quiet time to relax, the same way you'd do with a book you get lost in. I love making tags - the come together quicker than a card and you can put as much or as little as you want on them.  In a way I think they remind me of the artist trading cards.  They're just a little "canvas" to work on - but you can really personalize it any way you like.   The inspiration this time at Tag You're It  Challenge is from Kara Lynne Progreba!  It's super cute - I love the pattern paper background, the cute critters and the word die cut!  Did you see the tail of the fox extends off the edge of the tag?   I mean .. isn't this adorable?     






I kept all the elements of the design that I loved... the pattern paper background, cute critter and word die.  I even added a button through the hole at the top of the tag.. just like Kara Lynne!
I felt like my word die cut was fading into the busy, colorful skunk image so I triple cut the word die.. gold, light pink, dark pink.    This makes it stand out - hold it's own.
I have to have a little bling so I added some gold enamel dots, wood veneer hearts to go with that pretty floral button, and two shades of Twinery Twine - Denim and Blossom.

I thought I'd commented on your darling Pepe Le Pew tag, but...apparently not. Oh well, a second helping of delight is always a joy. Yes, stinkin' cute!
