Hooked on Tags - Part 2

Yep, still loving these tags. I get to use scraps and I love anything that allows me to do that. The scrap pile it out of hand and I can't see punching anymore misc. punched shapes. I can never find those when I need tham anyway.

So here is my tag for Daisy Doodles. It's challenge day on the challenge blog and I know you will want to enter this challenge. The theme is ANYTHING GOES! So my Christmas in August is just fine for this week. LOL!

If you love challenges as much as I do, you will definetly want to check out the Daisy Doodles Forum. We are kicking off a challenge there on Sept. 1st; the theme - ANYTHING GOES with Daisy Doodles! That's two chances to win with Daisy Doodles. The forum challenge, you must use a DD image. But you can get all the details Sept 1st by checking out the forum.

Hooked on Tags

I think I have found my new favorite thing. I was experimenting making tags and I have fallen in love. The only thing is my tags are as large as cards. I don't like tiny images; I want to color. Somehow I have to have a happy middle ground.

In the mean time here are two tags I whipped up this morning.

I made this one for this week's Crafting with Deedee challenge. We had to use primary school colors.

Supplies: Carstock - DCWV & The Papaer Company; PP - DCWV; Nestabilities; Ribbon - Michael's; Punches - Marvy Uchida & McGill

This one uses an image from Sweet Stamping Treats. My Guest Designer week is over, but I just had one more in me that had to come out. LOL!

CES Challenge - Anything Goes

Oh, I totally forgot to post my last card. This was day 5 at Sweet Stamping Treats. This iamge is very special to me becuase I won it. Karrie had a "name that stamp" contest and I suggested "Tweet" as the name and she chose my answer! Very exciting.

Off to a birthday party. I have some news to share later so this might be a two post day!

It's quiet...too quiet

The house is quiet. I'm not used to this. Even the dog and cat are asleep. So maybe that is my cue to go to bed. LOL!

I was working on a couple cards when I realized I didn't hear anything. It was kind of spooky. Not even the TV is on.

Anyway, hope you enjoy.

This image is from
Doodle Pantry. Laurie has some cute cute images in her shop. You should check her out.

This image is from
Guylous Inimitability. This was a freebie at CDAC.

Time for Fall

I love the Fall. I miss the Fall and Fall weather. It's been so hot the last few weeks, I'd give anything for a Fall day outside. School has started for my daughter and I always think of Fall when school starts...but it's HOT!

The image this week from
Designed 2 Delight was a Fall image. This was fun to work with. I like how this card came out.

I have been digging into my scrap piles for paper. So I have no idea where these papers are from.
