Recognize the Tag?

2012 Faves

Remember the tags I made a few days back?  Well, this is one of them, and I'm using it on this week's Verve sketch.  It's a super easy way to make a quick card.  It tweaks the sketch just a bit as the top of the tag doesn't quite fit the sketch, but I'm going with creative license ;)

This colour combo just makes me happy :)   Was great fun adding lots of polka dots to the card too, and that also makes me happy.   What can I say, simple things bring me great joy :)

Hope all my American friends are enjoying their long weekend. Outdoor Christmas lights are on the agenda this weekend - that is only if it isn't raining as I am a fair weather Christmas light putter upper LOL!

Have a great day!

it looks just lovely on a card and you've saved it from a quick toss to the wrapping pile! Now it will sit proudly on someone's mantle :) Hope the weather cooperates for you!

The tag works beautifully with this sketch. Lovin' all the circles/dots with the embossing, the dp, the button, the bling. Such a sweet card.

I really do like the colors and you know I am a dot lover, too.

Hope you got those lights up. We have just tonight returned home from our Thanksgiving trip and I am frantically trying to catch up on my commenting. :-) Just like a wild woman at the puter.
