a thank you and some fabulous candy



This tag is my entry for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, which is to make something for a thank you.  I started with a manila tag and did a lot of distressing, stamping, inking, etc.  Then I foam mounted two Memory Box birdies and a sentiment from Printworks. Then added some white liquid pearls, black enamel for the eyes and silver snowflake stickers.  

What I love about making a tag like this is that I never know what it will turn out to be.  I must say that I love the end result of this one!

While doing some blog hopping today I stumbled upon Bearly Mine crafts.  Donna is offering some wonderful blog candy to celebrate her upcoming birthday and Christmas.  For anyone living in the UK, there is also an Epsom printer up for grabs.  Hurry on over and check it out.

Thanks for visiting!

Joy, your tag is so lovely. I really love brown and teal together so I was immediately drawn to your project. :) Love the distressed edges and then the delicate white stamping of the pine branches. I also love the brown stamping in the background. The little white birds and the popped "THANKS" look fantastic. The addition of the snowflakes and white dots really does finish your tag off nicely. Thanks for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

One of the standouts for me in the SSS&S thumbnails this week. Love the layers of natural elements in the background and your groupings of white dots to go with your snowflakes. Your tags almost tells a story of bird foraging for morsels during the lean winter days. Something to be thankful for when our needs are met. Great tag.
