Now to a challenge! Today is the Stampavie Challenge and the challenge this week is to make a gift tag. Now that leave lots of room for what ever you see as a tag. Me.. I went more with a gift card. Sorry no real MoJo this week -

I started with my "tag" part... I knew  I wanted to make a card like tag and so I used one of the new Nesties I think this is Label 11 or maybe 12? I put it through my big shot folded and placed the left side just inside the die to allow it to not cut at the fold. Does that make sense? I used Bazzil Dotted Swiss card stock, love those dots.

For my image I chose Stampavie's Helz Cuppleditch's Ruffle Spring Plaque  - I think it is a really cute image, and was the perfect size for my little card. I cut it out with the same Nestie and then doodled around the edge. Ruffles is colored with my Copics and then I added some rhinestone bling for some sparkle.

Then the inside:
Very simple - I cut a piece of cream colored card stock, doodled the same as the front and then stamped the "For You" Sentiment (by Stamps by Judith) -  I really like how it came out. I may just have to make more of these little cards - was really kind of fun to work with such a small size.

Now you need to see the other Stampavie DT gift tags and then we would love you to play along with us! Great surprise gift again this time.. wink wink... you really want to win one of these :0)

Well.. gotta get going, we are spending the holiday, as we do each year... mowing and cleaning each of the donkey and goat pens. Fun huh? Later today we will BBQ - and have some friends come and help us eat  - Hope you have a wonderful day planned!

HUGS and-
