Inspire Me Challenge #4: CASE

Wow how the time flies when you are under the weather! Sorry I have been away so long, I was sick all week. My husband knew it was bad when I did not blog or craft at all! I meant to post this earlier this week...but now I am finally feeling better and just had to get back to my crafty buddies!

I loved looking at all of the tags and pulling bits and pieces from them. Seriously, I could CASE everyone of them. However, one really spoke to me in terms of inspiration.


Inspiration Card

I loved the tiny tag that Laurel added to the front of her card. And it caught my eye, so off to Photoshop I went to create a little tiny tag and added my sentiment while I was at it. I used PTI's Giga Guide Lines set to create the background paper and American Crafts ribbon for the bow. Does that ribbon look familar? It's the same ribbon that I ruched to use on the Christmas wreath for this card. I LOVE that ribbon.

There were 2 others that I just have to highlight as well. Lynn used a tag in a way that I had not ever thought a gift card holder! And Elise's...sweet, crazy, chatty, lovely Elise, paper pieced the heck out of some tags! You just have to look at them if you haven't already.

I printed out the little tags in two sizes and a few you just might see more of 'em on here soon. ;o) If anyone is interested in having a set, just leave me a comment and I'll post a pdf that you can download and print your own.

Thanks for stopping by tonight, I'm off to catch up on all I let fall behind this week. (Like the giant 9 foot tree waiting to be decorated!)
