Tag, You're It!

I'm starting to understand why people love making tags...these little buggers are so much fun! I'm not partial to designing them because I'm never certain of the balance. I see so many gorgeous ones out in blog world and when I received my image from our sponsor Meljen's Designs titled Tied Tag, BAM....the spontaneity just went bonkers.  I joke with a few of my blog buddies (cough Alyce, clear throat, cough Tracy) that they include everything PLUS the kitchen sinks on their cards and always look amazing, but paybacks are due. If you look closely you'll find the end of a can opener and to the right of that the cord sticking out from the waffle maker. Kidding....those aren't really there, but there is lots of stuff!
I like where this little tag took me and includes 2 extra tags and a cute little play on words. Might be a fun addition to a Valentine's present. 
Please join us at Make It Monday for our newest linky party and see what my fellow teammates have been up to as well as who they chose for their Picks Of The Week!
Speaking of...
I'm jealous, one..because this little Saturated Canary image is out playing in the snow and two, because she has a baby elephant to play with! Such a wonderful wintry scene that Sandra has created here with snowflakes all over...LOVE it! Pop over to blog here to see the whole card.

I'm giddy you stopped in and I hope you're all doing well.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping,
Lisa xx

I think tags are tricky to do - so little space to work with, I think that's my number one challenge! You did great with this one - colorful and fun, love all the texture and details you were able to put into that small space.

Chrissy said...

Good grief woman...you had me kneeling on the desk looking for the can opener...lol..blowed if I could see it, then read on..BAM!! you got me..lol..ahhh! dear..where was I ...fantastic detailed tag [minus the can opener]..and I would love to play with a baby elephant too, as for the snow, well that would be nice as it is stinking hot here, but an hour or two in the freezer seems to help..well, I was cleaning 2 of them today, and found it most refreshing...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Lisa, I'm looking at this dinky-do and am thinking "She's got everything but the kitchen sink on this teeny tiny tag and yet it's not cluttered. What magic is this?!" Tell me..please! :-)

Wow, your tag is amazing but...well, I'm still "seeing red" over the heart project posted after it! Wow...it's so awesome and fabulous and wonderful that it made me forgive you for reminding me of the weather change coming up! Seriously amazing! (I'm not sure what the opposite of that would be...humorously average?)
By the way, sweet sass has a name and it's Isabel...she's five years old going on 16 and she can take SIX steps before tripping over in heels! ;D
