Two For The Price of One….


I’ve been working on two tags the past couple of days.  No its not taking me that long to make them but its taking me that long to get them done.  You know in between all the household duties, etc.  Each of them are very different.  One is vintage and the other is whimsical.  There are a couple of challenges I will be submitting them too (details at the end of this post).  Let me know what you think.  I really like how they turned out. :)  Remember to click on images to see a larger view.   Thank you so much for visiting!

DETAILS:  This tag was created to use every thing in my stash that has not been  shown love for a long time.  The main focus are the buttons.  My button stash has been building up but I seem to forget about them.  I have lots of green ribbon & I just wanted to use it in a different way by making the flower stems out of it.  The papers were bought about 2 years ago.  Newest item is the ric rac.  The sentiment is computer generated. 



  1. Oh Fran! They are both wonderful but if I had to choose, it would be your whimsical one with the flowers and buttons - I love the way you did those stems - you might see that on my blog one day but I will be sure and give you allllllll the credit. Love your tags Fan --
