Sending Hugs

Hi Everyone,

you may know that tags are not my forte - in general I try to stay away from them.....but I tried it again, putting them on a card.

First I used an old TCW Stencil and embossing paste, colored with Gelatos. The tags are a Mama Elephant die. The dandelion is an old Hero Arts stamp -one of my favorites - I do LOVE dandelions. The Kraft paper I die cut with a Simon Says die, as is the sentiment. the stamped sentiment is from the matching SSS stamp set. Given my limited experience with tags I am happy with the result. 

I am linking up with:

Mod Squad challenge - I am tagging you
Sunday stamps - photo challenge
Simon Says Monday challenge - don't cut, just paste
Retro Rubber - tie it on
A Blog named Hero - favorite (favorite dandelion stamp)
The Male Room - add a tag

Ahhhh I don't think you have a thing to worry about, I love your tag card! Thanks for joining us at the Male Room!

Anita in France said...

Had a smile reading that tags are not your forte, Cornelia ... me neither, I avoid them! However, if this card is anything to go by, you should move them into your forte category! It's simply gorgeous ... the colours are beautiful together, I love that dotty background and oh my, that dandelion clock ... just beautiful! Anita :)

cm said...

"Tags are not your forte" you say? Hmmm...I respectfully disagree, because you've created magic with the one you used here! Beautiful colour, beautiful image (dandelion puffs make me smile...); beautiful dotted background. I agree with Anita...move 'tags' into your 'forte' repertoire...
