Happy Friday! I have that "fresh-highlights-in-the-hair" afterglow....what a great feeling. I let my roots go too long this time. LOL
I made this tag last night so I could play in A Blog Named Hero challenge - New Year, New You (use new stuff or new technique) and In The Pink's Pink and Pearlie challenge, and Simon Says Stamp's New Something challenge (new home, baby or new craft supplies).
The tag was already die cut, in one of those fabulous $1.00 Scrap Bags from my Stampin' Up! demo (Gail, you're a peach!). There were actually about 20 of them in there, but I just used one for this project.
My new item is a stamp set by Paper Sweeties called Pennant Party. I won it over at Word Art Wednesday and it's just the sweetest, most versatile set! "My Sweet Love" reminds me of the George Harrison song, "My Sweet Lord." When I was young and this song was new and on the radio all the time, I thought George sang, 'my sweet love'.
The little tiny design beneath each word, plus the flourished borders, come from Technique Tuesday's Bijou Borders. It's new to me, and even though I bought it last summer, had never inked it up until now.
The 'pearls' along the scalloped punch bottom are actually Liquid Pearls, applied with a heavy hand.
I've been generously blessed with some paper-crafting awards recently, listed on my sidebar. One award that I did not get to post yet is from Anushka of Sunshine Creations. My "Christmas Cottage" took top honors and so I get to be a guest designer with Anushka soon. You know, she's only 11 years old and runs her own crafting challenge blog. I am SO impressed. Her mom is an accomplished paper-crafter, too, so it does run in the family. :-)
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
