A Tag and some more Christmas in July

This week's Dilly Beans Challenge is Tags. I don't make a lot of tags so this was fun to make!

I used part of the top of the box my computer came in, and I distressed it by peeling off some layers, painting it, and sponging on some ink. I used some other distressed items like a piece of left overChristmas Mesh and a scrap of binding wire from an old watercolor paper pad.

I added a barefoot Girlz image from Bugaboo, a digi button card from Can You Digi It?, some buttons, pearls, and fibers.

I am planning on tying this to a bottle of wine or some bubble bath liquid and giving it to a friend who is having a very tough time right now.

The latest Can You Digi It? challenge really sparked my creativity. I posted a New Year's card this morning and tonight I wanted to share a 4th of July Card. I made both cards with the AnnieJ Designs Framed Mountain image (available at Can You Digi It?). I changed the color of the image to purple, added a sentiment, cut it out with a Spellbinders Oval, surrounded it with purples and added some flowers (made with the MS Hydrengia Punch and leaf punch).

One last Christmas in July challenge card! I used the very wonderful Fresh Brewed Designs Sketch and created a card using the LilyPink Designs Cloud with is also available at Can You Digi It? I made a Christms card out of it by using a pretty Poinsetta off a Christmas Pick I bought last year. I love the sketch and wish I had time to make another card using it but the Fresh Brewed Designs Sketch challenge ends in like one hour!

Hugz to all!!!


  1. Wow, you have been a busy gal. The tag is so nice, friend is going to love it. Circle card, great design and that flower, WOW! Pretty purple care, and mountains and clouds are awesome.


  2. Wow! Lots of fun projects here Nancy. I like the corrugated cardboard on the tag and I'm really glad you used that mountain scene digi. I'm planning on using it myself and now I have a good idea of what it looks like. Thanks for all the lovely comments you've been leaving me. :-) Hugs!

  3. These are all wonderful Nancy, I love the sentiment on the first,the colours on the second and the large flower on the last one.
