Just Tag It!

Good Morning!

We FINALLY got our first snowfall of the season on Saturday! Everyone one around us has had some snow except us. I hear it's because our town lies in an ancient lake bed and we're surrounded by mountains, so the bad weather hits all the higher elevations instead. That is usually fine by me, but it's December and we hadn't had any snow! It wasn't much of a snowfall - 1-2 inches, but at least it was something! You watch though; I'll take it all back when we get our first Nor-easter! LOL

Ok, onto today's tags. Yes, tags! Today's There She Goes challenge is brought to you by yours truly and it's to make a tag! Any shape, any size, any way - just make one!

I couldn't decide what style of tag to do, so I made three of them for you! Aren't I nice?! ;) LOL This first tag is one for a wine bottle. It was really quick and easy to make! I used the candy cane image from the Holiday Tags set and popped it up off a little oval nestie medallion. Cute right?

This second tag was one I couldn't not do. I've seen a few ornaments created in blogland using the nesties, so I had to make one for myself too! The sentiment is from last month's HSH Holiday Additions set and I used some (really) old SEI Christmas paper with some yummy white glitter paper, which I found at Michaels. I hung it on my tree for the photo because I have no Christmas presents wrapped yet...or bought for that matter, but lets not go there today! LOL

Now this next card/tag kind of came to me after seeing this week's Sketch For You To Try. I wanted to use some of those wooden snowflakes you can find at Michaels for a tag and when I saw the sketch this week, I immediately thought of a tag or ornament you can remove off a card to use and/or recycle. Isn't this a great idea?! I try not to think about the fact that some people eventually throw away handmade cards they've received (don't get me started on that one either!) so I love the idea that you can remove the tag and reuse it elsewhere! A pure stroke of genius on my part people! LMBO! Just kidding. Now, I haven't seen this done anywhere before, but I can't imagine this idea is a first anywhere, but how cool is this? I mean, in an age where recycling is a part of everyday life (and is even taught in preschools - my 4 yr old recognizes the recycle symbol!), recycling a card should be as normal as recycling plastic. So anyway, I tucked the ties behind the rectangle panel and when you pull the tag off the card, you're all set to use it on something else. I ended up putting one of the full sentiments from the HSH Holiday Additions set on the inside of the card since it wouldn't fit on the front.
Ok, now it's your turn to create your own tag! Upload it to your blog or SCS gallery and leave a link to it on Mr Linky, located at the bottom of today's challenge post. Then you'll have a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to the TSG store. Can't wait to see your creations!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
