The dark gray flower was made using the newest flower punch from SU! I punched a couple of the flowers and then ran them through the paper crimper a couple of times and them wadded them up. I then opened them and separated the layers and stacked them up, securing them with a big pink blingy brad from Hobby Lobby. I used graphite Glimmer Mist on the flower to give it some shimmer.
The papers for the tag are all torn, inked, and dry embossed. The ribbons and fibers are all from the scrap jar. I even managed to use some of my hoarded Hodgepodge Hardware!
I'm rather pleased with how this turned out and hope you like it, too!

The paper at the bottom is by Queen and Co. and the pleated ribbon is SU!
Now, what to use it for? I decided to stamp the tag for a birthday gift. I wanted to take a photo of the box opened up, but I didn't want to leave it empty for the photo. Hubby and I don't drink (alcohol definitely comes under the heading of processed foods) so I found the only appropriate bottle I had in the house...a bottle of cane syrup from the a friend of the farm!! (Hubby's not off the processed foods)
Well, that's three incomplete projects that have been put to bed for me over Spring break so far. The other two are sets of cards I had started using Northwoods stamps. Both sets still needed the finishing touches of coloring and glitter added to them and I got that done yesterday. Today, I'm off to find the floor of my stamp room and maybe even the table!! Wish me luck!!

Here is a shot of the two cards together.

As for the rest of the day, I'll be taking part in a class at the LSS where we will be making 6 super-glittered cards using Northwoods stamps. The images are all different birds. I couldn't decide which images I wanted, so if I take the class, I get to make all the cards without having to buy all the stamps! By the time I'm done today, I'm sure I will have at least one image that stands out from the rest and has to come home with me!!!

The photo does not do this beautiful pendant justice! The little red blings were done by coloring clear rhinestones with a Copic marker. Gorgeous!!!

We are missing Ice terribly right now and I am sure there will be another dog in our lives very soon. When the right situation happens, we will know it and I'm sure we will have no choice in the matter as our fur babies have always chosen us, not the other way around. For now, we are trying to carry on and get back to normal, especially for the sake of my granddaughter, Kyli who I worry will be very upset over losing Ice. They had gotten to be quite the pair! Today she was practicing using my Scor Buddy while I was finishing the prep work for the Sunday class. (I didn't have a very productive evening last night)
Well, thanks for stopping and "listening" to my ramblings. Looking forward to more cheerful posts in the future!
