Happy Saturday to all of my blogging friends!!

I hope that your weekend is going well in whatever you are doing!
I am going to go outside here in a few minutes and work in the backyard doing a bit of trimming and such. The wheather is so nice!! It's a great day to be out!!
Okay okay...Onto the Challenge..
I have my DT card for
Magnolia Down Under
This weeks challenge is TAG IT.....
I have made a cute little chipboard tag and placed it on my card. I bought a pair of jeans not so long ago and they had this very sturdy chipboard tag on them and I thought oh boy I will save that and use it on one of my cards!! LOL... So today I have done just that! I covered it with some papers and sanded the edges. I think it is so very cute!! I also love the colors that I have used on this little cutie.
Now let's have a look.........

A side view so that you can see the 3D of the tag as I have popped it with some foam dots.
Card Ingredients:
Papers: Bazzill cardstocks, Cosmo Cricket, Echo Park Papers, Ruby Rocket, Magnolia Ink, Kaiser Craft
Ink: Copic markers, distressed ink for my edges .

I have sanded the edges of the layers. To give it a slight rusty shabby chic look.

Stamps: #338 CHERRY TILDA from the Autumn Collection available at Magnolia-Licious
Inks: Copic markers, watercolor pencils, destressed inks for the paper edges
Embellies: brads, paper flowers, ribbons, lace trim, velvet trim, buttons, striped cotton thread, pearls, tulle, bee button, cherries by Heidi Swapp,
Tools: sewing machine

that cute little cherry paper can also be bought at Magnolia-licious!! Diana has it in stock!

Here is a close-up of the cute little tag. So you can see the details.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
I love all of the comments that you take your time to leave for me!
I know that it takes up extra time do that so THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!!

For those of you that stop by my blog often I am sure you can see that I have a bit of a make over! I LOVE IT!!! What do you think? Did you see that cute little bear that has been added to my blog header along with the new papers and othe little fun things? I have a new watermark and a new siggie too! LOL.. I love them!!!! A bit of a change is a good thing at times.. LOL.

I want to thank Martine for the help with these things! She is a very very sweet person and such a doll. If you should need help in this area if you write to her she just may help you also. Photobucket

I was in America when you made this little beauty and whereas I tried to catch up on my return, this is obviously one I missed. Imagine my surprise when it arrived here in the flesh this morning! It is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! I love it and everything that came with it and I'm soooooooooo pleased it didn't get lost in the Christmas mail! What a stunning card, PQ, and what lovely gifts came with it! Thank you sooooooooo much! Love Lesley
