Birthday Tag


Hello, hello!  I've got a bright and cheery tag on my card today courtesy of this week's Dynamic Duos colours and the sketch at RetroSketches.  I don't really use too many tags though so I used this one to embellish a card instead.  

Must dash off to work now… or should I say hobble!  Remember this post from Friday when I said I wasn't going to get involved with the power washer?  Stupidly I decided on Sunday that I'd actually help Luis out with part of the job - the cleaning out of the boat house. While carrying empty bottles to the trash bag I slipped on some sludge (left over from from the power washing on Saturday)  and took a real tumble.  I slammed my foot into a rock and somehow avoided falling on the bottles that shattered around me.  Not my finest moment…   Now the top of my foot is all scraped up and my big toe is pretty well smashed. *Sigh*  Lesson for the day:  Don't help hubby with outside "man" jobs.  Just stay inside and watch him from the safety of the Craft Cave!

What a perfect example of the dynamic duo colors! Love the little polka dots on the card base and such a good idea to use a partial banner on the tag. I loved that idea!

What a great bright bloom on this fun tag card Jen! so sorry about the fall - and I'd say that's a great excuse to never help outside again!?! Hope it feels better soon!

Ouch! Your tumble and injury don't sound pleasant at all! I'm cringing for you! Hopefully, your husband is spoiling and pampering you to the nth degree! Your tag/card: gorgeous! Vibrant blooms, pretty polka-dot ribbon and the background dots are the perfect special touch! LOVE it!

So sorry to hear about your fall. Definitely stay in the cave next time. Love this bright and cheery card. My favorite way to use a tag is to just glue it on to a card base.
