Puppy Love Tag Book

I was invited by Karla Nathan to participate in her Puppy Love tag swap awhile back and recently received the finished product back from her. Every tag I got was so beautifully done and I am very honored to have such great work in my collection now. Thank you all so much for the hard work you put into each tag

This is how my package arrived. It was very pretty and had great goodies on top that I can't wait to use in my projects.

Karla bound all the tag books together and added cute little extras like flowers and a red plastic Scottie.

Karla handmade about 60 covers for the tag books. Look how gorgeous! All those little tiny hearts are hand drawn and hand painted!!!

This amazing 3-D tag was made by Andrea Tarling of vintagebellastudio

The back is just as pretty and detailed as the front.

Karoline Simmons also made a 3-D tag. Aren't these kids the most darling!

Mahala made her tag so texturally interesting and the colors are my favorite combination.

OOOH! When I saw Cheryl post about these tags on her blog, I started wishing very hard that I would be one of the lucky 6 to get one and I WAS!!!

Kana used the prettiest flocked paper for her background.

She also used one of my favorite pictures on the backside. How romantic!

Look at these details: she glued confetti sized dog bones to the baker's twine. How delicate!

And last but not least was this beauty made by Debe Leone. That stamp on the back is very pretty; I would love to find it somewhere.

Thank you all so much once again! I love this book so much I can't bear to hide it away until next Valentine's season...

I Am So Sorry!!!

I know, I know...I said I would pick a winner on Friday night but I didn't. I was so wrapped up in all the awesome things my BF had planned for us and didn't have access to a computer. Please accept my apologies and to help convey them I also drew a number for a second, smaller giftie!

Alrighty! That's all folks! I will be picking a giveaway winner randomly tomm. evening. Most likely have my bf put the comments in his brand new firefighter helmet (that he would love to marry, in fact) and I will post the winner on Sat. morn.

Since there were so few comments, ya'll have a great chance in winning. 1 in 7, woohoo! Lol.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Puppy Love #2 and a Giveaway!

So, I know I said that I would post pictures of the last 3 tags for Karla's Puppy Love Tag Swap but I forgot to take pics. I was in such a hurry to get them done and out the door that it didn't even cross my mind. Oh well, maybe I will find out who has them in their tag book and I can snag a pic from them.

Also, I just realized that I have been blogging (not very well) for a year as of yesterday! Therefore, I feel a giveaway is in order. I don't have pics just yet but I will pull together a great assortment of ephemera, buttons, papers, trinkets, bits, baubles, etc. Spread the word!!!

All you have to do is leave a comment on THIS post and I will close comments on Thursday night at 10:00 EST. On Friday, I am flying down to Virginia to spend Valentine's Day with my BF and I will have him pick a number for me Sat. morn. I will post to let the winner know. Be sure to leave a way for me to contact you. Haha, I just realized that this is my first giveaway ever! Too funny.
