Girls love Blue TOO!

Hi everyone, It's Tuesday again and I just love the MIDDLE of the week challenge!  Personally, I had my craft sale on Sunday and wanted to let you know that about 20% of my supply went flying out the door and will soon be sent to all their loved ones!  There's nothing more gratifying than to know the general public really appreciates the artwork I put into the greeting cards! 
It's Top Tip Tuesday time to challenge all of you again with creating something with a "T".  We brain stormed and came up with some great ideas like:   Tree,Tire,Triple - could be three of something,Teenagers,Tiger . . . well you get the idea!  


However, I decided to create something that didn't have the T inside the artwork but instead a "TAG"!  This is my first tag ever so I hope you enjoy it!  I'm going back to my more simple card projects for the next week or two, this one took a while! :)
Our Sponsor's this week are: Simon Says

                                                                  Photobucket
 
This tag was a very vintage based Shabby Chic type of project . . . and as you know. . .   I don't do this often but I tried my hand at weaving paper, wax sealing form, my brand new distress tool and my first corner metal embellies from Tim Holtz.  Since this year holds a lot of firsts for me, I couldn't wait to ink up this gorgeous Nellie Snellen image I just got in the mail.   I think she is just the cutest in her little tutu while opening her pretty present with her bunny friend. . . it's perfect for the baby shower, birthday and Christmas gift too!
