You Are Sweet

Lately, I've been making a lot of tags because people have told me that they like to use them as bookmarks.  So when I send someone a birthday card, I always try to include a tag.  I made this one for my friend who does a lot of reading.  She likes to have a bookmark/tag in each book she's reading, so this will work perfectly.
I used a piece of Simple Stories floral paper for the background, and then pressure embossed a piece of cream paper on top of that.  I added two different washi tapes (red polka dot and blue plaid), some narrow yellow rick-rack, and a tag with some Doodlebug rub-ons to spell "you are" and then added a "sweet" Making Memories chipboard from my stash (super old) to an October Afternoon journaling sticker.
I'm going to enter some challenges with this tag.  Here are the challenges I found that I could enter.

Mark's Finest Papers - #62 - Simple Salutations/Thinking of You - I was thinking of my friend who I made this tag for, and I think she will love it.
Word Art Wednesdays Challenges - #97 Anything Goes
V's Sweet Ideas Challenges - #15 Washi Tape

Eureka Stamps - #56 - Shaped Cards - I used a tag so that's a shape, right?
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Emboss It - I embossed the cream piece of paper that's over my floral paper using my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder

I hope to find a few more challenges where I can link up!  Please let me know if you can think of any for me!

Thank you,

  7. Oh, your tag is so adorable, and I just love that red and white polka dotted washi. I have been thinking about picking up some washi just like that but now that I have seen it on your tag I know I want some. I think tags are so versatile too. I use them alot for bookmarks too. I hope your doing well, sending a hug to you.
