Tag - *Things that make me happy* - Simon Says Challenge





Made this tag for the *Simon Says* challenge. Things that bring me happiness is such a huge notion, that it is hard to fit it onto a little tag or card. I cut the tag from recycled card, distressed the background and stamped & embossed the bird-cage and foliage on it. The large bird has been stamped, cut out and decoupaged, the 2 small birdies have been cut with a Martha Stewart punch. The large bird, foliage and bird-cage stamps are all from Tim Holtz, as are the inks. I gave the large bird a bell (from an Easter Bunny!) and added a mini post-card as title. The gems and pearls are from Prima. Was fun to make, as always, but now I have to do some housework before my place is knee deep in paper snippets! Thanks for looking!

  1. I likes your style - eat the chocolate bunny and use the bell in your work, lol. Wow, what a tag! Love how you display your creations on your balcony with the cherubs too. I would never have thought the Martha Stewart style would work so well with Tim Holtz, but I guess it depends who's combining them. CoB x

  2. Thanks Cob, I love combining opposites - and eating choclate bunnies, or Chocolate Santas. Of course, only to get the bells and ribbons....
