Hi there!  After several days with temperatures in the 70s, today is windy and cold with a temperature in the low 40s.  It is supposed to hit 70 again midweek and then back to the 40s at the end of the week.  What kind of a season is this?

Today, I have a tag to share which I really enjoyed making.  Using a tag cut from a cereal box as a base, I covered both sides with paper from Lemoncraft's House of Roses.  It is a beautiful collection.  Next, I layered a Prima doily and various lace appliques and trims.  A vintage photo was placed in a resin frame and surrounded with flowers from my stash.  The leaves were cut with another Prima die.  The butterflies were fussy cut from the paper.  The "For You" embellishment is part of the collection.  A strip of pearls and pink ribbon finish the tag.

Here is a view of the tag from another angle.  I love the pretty colors of this tag.  With Spring in the air, it certainly is ideal to welcome the season.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and for all the good wishes on my new job assignment.  It was a bit stressful this past week but I'm hoping that things will work out well soon.  I hope the new week ahead is a wonderful one for you.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend!


  1. Gosh, this tag is just gorgeous and very romantic! I really love the vintage image and the beautiful frame and details. Happy Sunday and have a great week!

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous! love the lace along the bottom.. and enjoy the feel of spring.. I am looking forward to some autumn days!!

  3. You make such pretty tags, Patty! I love the soft vintage floral feel to this one! Your combo of flowers and butterflies and that layered trim is just fabulous. Love the sweet image in the resin frame, too!
    Your weather sounds a lot like ours... we've been in the 70's, but dipped yesterday... and now it's climbing back into the 70's again. And glad to hear you made it through the work week without too much trouble. It will get easier from here on out!

  5. What a beautiful tag Patty! I love your recycling of the cereal box for the base, how clever! I so adore all the pinks, my absolute fav! Your laces are always so beautiful, I love the way it dangles from the bottom, and your glittery butterflies are such delightful additions! Gorgeous!!

    Our weather here has been the most strange that I have ever seen! I bought a new winter coat this year so I could take long walks in the woods, I've used it twice!! It's killing our trees and our animals, and I'm really hoping that this is a phenomenon and not a sign of years to come. I hope you've a good couple of weeks my friend, sorry I've not been around. hugs :)
