Tag it Pretty
Well today's challenge at notimetostamp is to make a pretty tag. I have heard of tag..you're it, but not tag you're pretty, so after some deep contemplation I figured it all out and started creating.I'm sure you have heard that old expression...handsome is as handsome does?? Well I'm going with Pretty is as Pretty does. Does that sound good to you ?? Hmmm...pretty tag takes pretty paper and pretty paper needs bling. I went with some beeutiful paper from my favorite paper store in Billings, Montana called Sisters. The store is called Sisters not the paper just in case you're confused and didn't get that. No name on the paper once again and that of course is NOT my fault. Very simply I cut some red cs ( that's card stock) and then my bee..utiful paper and slapped them together gently so as not to cause any pain and then went to work with my blingers. No stamping but hey that's cool isn't it? I think it is. Added some snazy red satin like ribbon that was laying around from Tuesday's challenge and made myself or should say made the tag a loop to hold it to the package and of course the bow is made with the infamous Bow Easy. The snowflakes are from last year's Stampin Up stash and I thought they matched the paper pretty well so I glued them on. So there you have it...tag it pretty and I hope you think I did.
Time for the weekend and I'm laying low as usual...that's what us little old ladies do. Grab a glass of wine, cup of coffee, or whatever you so desire and get in the recliner for a night at the movies. Watched Gran Torino last weekend and the language was really rank but the movie did have a good story line so I guess I have to say I liked it. When you hear those nasty words my mind goes Bleep Bleep and I move on...hope you do to. Have a great weekend and see you next week
