Waltzing Mouse, "Tag, you're it!"

I don't make tags very often. The canvas just seems so very small. What can you possibly do on a tag? Well, I have been cruising through some of my favorite designers and they do some magnificent things on a tiny little 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 tag! I'm thinking, I can do this... The only thing that seems even more difficult would be ATC cards (no, I don't get that at all!)

Waltzing Mouse threw this challenge out there this week, so I felt obligated to at least try!
So, I pulled out the few sentiments I have from WM, and decided to go with a TAG ON A card that I needed to make anyway. Sometimes friends go way above and beyond to be there for you when all they probably want to say is, "Get over it!"   This is for one of those times when my friend should have said, "Chill-ax, man, Life's way too short".  I don't deserve such great friends!
The pattern paper is 7 Gypsies, Avignon pack, the "post card' was cut from the Cosmo Cricket, " Love Notes" Journaling cards.  My tiny little bike stamp is MME, Lost and Found, Portabella Road. And the Eiffle Tower image is TPC, Travel World. I don't think I left a stone unturned in my scrap room!  The sentiment is from "Rescue Remedies Additions".  I've really gotten my use out of that one!

I recently picked up some fantastic ruffles and trims when I went to California for my brief vacay. That wholesale store was amazing!  The epoxy flowers are my newest Ebay find.  A bit of machine stitching and seam binding, and done!  For someone who doesn't do tags, I kind of like it!

I could sure use some more Waltzing Mouse stamps, especially more sentiments. I'm really limited when it comes to WORDS! So wish me luck!

This is to be entered in the Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge this week!

I love Taylored Expressions!

The entire shelf is popped out so it sits away from the card.

I also popped out oneof the little drawers to make it appear to be open and added
eyelet rings for the pulls.  I have a prettier piece of gold chain or tiny pearls that I will add for the "jewelry".

This is to be entered at the challenge for Taylored Expressions, for their birthday celebration!  It is actually going to be my mom's birthday card in October.
