Happy Friday!

Friday, December 5, 2008

Morning everyone! It's Friday and I couldn't be more relieved! LOL I have a head cold coming on and I need the weekend to recoup! It's nothing a little Sudafed can't fix.

Today is challenge day over at Hanna Stamps and this week I am your gracious host! (I can say that because it's my blog! LOL) My challenge this week is to create a gift tag. With the holidays right around the corner, and all the presents we'll no doubt be buying, they're going to need gift tags adorning them! They can be any size or shape, but they must have at least one embellishment and the color red on it. Head on over to the thread, HSC46, in the Hanna Stamps forum for these details and a link to the gallery.

I made a couple of tags to show you. Mainly because I wasn't happy with how my first one turned out. Before this, I hadn't made a gift tag ever! So this was even a challenge for me!

My first one uses the newly released 'Pin Up Hanna'. She's wearing a hot little red number! I should put this on a little jar of massage oil for the hubby! hahaha I don't think I need to go into a lot of detail on these tags. They're pretty self explanatory. If you do have a question about them, just leave a comment and I'll get back to you on it, ok? :D

My second tag uses the same mica glitter as the first tag. I've been drooling over Anna Wight's snowflakes for a month now, so I had to give it a try! The nice thing about this tag is that the receiver could end up using it as an ornament! I love sentimental ornaments, don't you?

My (second and) third tag uses 'Sleepy Time Riley'.
I love how this one turned out! I stamped the base of the tag with the snowflakes from the 'Ski Bunny' set in white ink, then stamped over the top of them in versamark and added some Kaleidescope embossing powder for some sparkle. Then I added some stickles to Riley's bunny slippers for even more sparkle.

My fourth tag uses 'School Riley' and it's a tag for some cookies I'll be making for my DD's preschool teachers. They'll get a kick out of him! I made the blackboard from black cs and Morning Marigold cs. The frame was aged with distress inks. I think this is my favorite tag of all.

Ok, so that's all I have for today. I hope your Friday is quick (unless you have the day off work, then I hope it's nice and slow!) and painless. I was supposed to have today off, but I'm working extra hours to be used later in the month.

Tomorrow I'll have a card to show you for Papercraft Planet's 12 days of Christmas challenge - it's sponsored by Hanna Stamps tomorrow! :D Toodles!
