My very first tag!

I've never made a tag before but a friend's husband offered to cut me some wooden tags so I had a go this afternoon.

I used Arianna Blooms die from Heartfelt Creations, with Arianna Lace being placed under the flower.  The sentiment is a Stampin Up one.  Quite simple really, I thought I'd start with something not too difficult.

Thank you for reading.

Back in the groove after Christmas

Hope everybody had a good Christmas (if there is anyone reading this, that is!).  I decided to get my craft stuff out this afternoon and made two cards.  Both simple cards but it took me all afternoon.  I guess the more I do, the quicker I will get.  This is made from the Elegant Labels 4 die from Spellbinders.

This first one took the longest as I had to do some die cutting.

Although I have nobody in mind to give this card to, I'm sure that sooner of later, I will think of someone.  I love Stampin' Up sentiment stamps, they have such a huge selection.

The next card was done much quicker, although I had to die cut the flower (Arianna Blooms from Heartfelt Creations) but I love making flowers and have loads scattered around my craft room.  I just didn't have any red ones pre-made!  The Arianna Blooms die has a matching rubber stamp set and is so easy to cut.

I think this one will make a great card for a man - and men's cards are so difficult to make.  I'm sure the men in my life will overlook one little flower.

Happy weekend!
