We have had so much rain this week, I thought we were going to have to build an ark! Now, we're getting ready for a week of high temperatures and humidity. Thank goodness for air conditioning!
Yesterday, I rescued a baby bird from our window well. I kept hearing loud chirping and discovered the little thing in the well. The momma bird was walking around nearby. I got a shovel and scooped the baby out of the well. It could only fly a few inches off the ground. When I saw the momma and baby last, they were headed toward a bush.
Anyway, the tag I'm sharing today reminds me of the sweet birds. I started with a kraft tag that I had to cut part of the bottom off because of a mistake. I covered it with K&Co paper after inking the edges. Onto that, I put a piece of lace trim and a Wilton doily. The flowers and leaves were in my stash. Love my Martha Stewart frond punch and tucked in a few around the flowers. The pearl flower swirl is from Basic Grey. The little bird, which has a generous coating of Martha Stewart glitter, as well as the birdhouse are from Recollections.
The tag was finished with a piece of twill, Prima trim and an unknown trim. The leaves were a bit bright, so I toned them down some with chalk ink. (You can click on the photos for a closer view.)
A couple of people have said they don't know what to do with the tags. I like to use mine for decoration. I tuck them in a basket, put one on a pile of books, or displayed on a small easel. And I rotate them for the seasons.
Well, that's it for me today. My husband and son just left for a guy's night out, so I'm going to sit back and relax with my dog. Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead. Thanks so much for stopping by. I do appreciate your sweet comments.
