Ooodles of Love

Hello folks. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I spent some time in the 'ole craft room and finally finished off my tag card from Decemeber. Yup, I had the image all colored up and an idea in my head but my mojo left me so it simply sat on my desk. I love when aha moments come though - because this finally got done!

I decided to use Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Lucille. I know this looks more like a Valentine image but I have alot of love I wanted to send as a thank you to my neighbor. Can't tell you how supportive she has been checking in on my all the time. I liked the idea of making the image into a tag for the focal point and then added lots of glitter and Crystal effects to the hearts for extra shine. You'll even find a few flat backed pearls in Lucille's hair and along the bottom border. I used lots of odds and ends that have been sitting around to make this the piece of satin ribbon (from my grandma stash - she had the craft room to end all) and the red burlap that I bought in Michigan at a LSS about 5 years ago. The sentiment comes with the image and I thought it said exactly what I feel...

Lucille is delightful! I know what you mean about your mojo leaving - mine has only just returned and I am SO far behind in my cards. In fact this week's BF is Dana's bday card and her bday was last month! I can say that cause she's already commented here and probably won't look again :) Love your tag card and so happy you're back in your stamp room. I'm heading to mine shortly!
