Thank You Tag in Blues

Hi Dreamers,
Another day, another tag.  I am just loving tags lately!   I have another one to share with you today.  I made the tag  from white CS sprayed with Glimmer Mists.  I used stamps from Gina K. Designs - Block Greetings set.

I stamped on white CS with Pacific Point ink (Stampin' Up).  I made some little fabric poofs and glued them on the top and bottom of the stamped image.  The poofs are really easy to make.  Cut a circle from fabric and hand gather the edge.  Pull the stitches tight and that's it.  Really fun and a great way to use up little scraps of fabric.  (I also used the poofs on this tag here.)

 I tied a strip of fabric in a knot and added three strips of fabric at the top of the tag.

And, how about a few challenges!!??
Gina K Designs: sewing
Simon says stamp: put a stamp on it
Penny's Challenge: sew charming
Through the craft room door: anything goes
Our Daily Bread: you leave me in stitches

Well, I guess that's enough for now.  Going out for a birthday lunch today.  Should be fun.  Have a great day!  Love ya.
