I hope the world is smiling at you today. I can't believe it's October already! Where did the rest of the year go??! Dark mornings and dark evenings are going to be the way from here on in, but to tell you the truth, I don't mind the winter! I've always had a theory that because I was born in the winter (in December) that I'll always be fond of that time of year. In saying that, I do enjoy a bit of sun, but not too much!
We have another challenge for you today from the Creative Card Crew and our sponsor for this fortnight is the fabulous Birdie Brown!
So our challenge theme is...
We would like to see you make a tag or have a tag on your project!
I did a bit of both - here's my card:
I made a pop-up card with the up bit being a tag! The image is by Birdie Brown and has been coloured with the following copics: Bear; E44,43,42,40,blender. Clothes/balloons; B00,000,0000. Grass; YG11,13,95. I added the wording to the balloons on the computer before I printed the image and the font is called AR Carter.
The papers are some of the left-overs from the quilted card I made last week and are by Pink Petticoat - Gingham in Pebble. I also used kraft card stock for the base of the card. I dry brushed some white acrylic paint over the edges of the kraft to soften them. I used my Stampin' Up! scallop border punch for the front panel and used a small tag die that I've had for ages (and have no idea who made it) for the sentiment. The pearls, ribbon and charm are all from my stash.
The back of the tag is where I have left for the greeting. I'm going to send this to another of my cousins (in London) who just had a wee baby boy the other day!
I've added 2 tiny pearls to the back to hold the card in the open position for added strength.
Here's the card when it is folded flat to fit in an envelope.
So I do hope you can join us this fortnight at the Creative Card Crew - pop over to see the rest of the DT's fab makes for more inspiration!
