Yep ... me again!
Sorry to post yet again today but there was one more challenge
I wanted to join in and time is running out!
The challenge is over at My Artistic Adventures and the theme
this week is:  BITS OF GREEN.

With Mother's Day right around the corner, I wanted
to create a tag to attach to my mom's gift and Heather Hudson
had just the perfect Mother's Day Printable Sheet in her Etsy Store.

My Mom was 85 in January (and runs circles around me I must admit! lol)
and I know she'll just LOVE this tag ... possibly more
that the gift it's attached it!  LOL

Making this post short and sweet ... hope you'll check out this challenge blog and Heather's Etsy Store.  If you like vintage you'll definitely love these images!!!  The only additions I made to this tag were the homemade rose created with the Creative Expressions Sue Wilson 'Final Touches Classic Rose' die set, Martha Stewart 'Branch' punch leaves and the green organza ribbon.  Also, the framed picture frame has been popped up with dimensional tape.

Other challenges to share in:
Jellypark Challenge - One for Mum
A Gem of a Challenge - Pretty in Pink

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day!
As always . . .
