New Love

I found a new love.  Tags.  I've never done tags before, other than a quick one for a gift bag or something like that.  The new challenge at The Paper Variety is a tic-tac-toe game, and I chose the row that included making a tag, using spring colors, and adding a bird.  I thought I'd give a tag a go, and I'm so happy I did.

I misted Lily Bee text paper for the background, added chipboard, flowers, and an SRM Sticker sentiment.  Using a clothespin, I attached this tag to a bouquet of yellow tulips that I have sitting near my livingroom window, then got busy making one for my mother-in-law's birthday.

This tag may not scream spring, but I love the purple/yellow combination and it matched her flowers perfectly.  I tied the tag around the vase.  Now I want to make tags all the time!  If you play along, you don't have to make a tag.  Just use three in a row:

You could win this lovely prize from Birds of a Feather kits:

See that Glimmer Glam in the corner?  I'm picking up the Glimmer Glaze in the same color today, along with a couple others.  I can't wait :).  So please stop by and consider playing.  We'd love to see you at The Paper Variety.  Have a great day! Tessa
