Great Tags: Purple 'Birthday Cake' Eater

Yikes! Been a while since I posted to my blog but I can explain. I've been very creative but not in the craft room... instead I've been baking lots of cookies.Link I even tried a few new recipes. Some of which have been really good and some just okay. The really good? Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting (nom nom nom). Of course I did bake a bunch of known favorites like Turtle Brownies, Judy's Crinkle Cookies and Peanut Blossom. All in all, I'm drowning in cookies. Hee hee.

I did find a bit of time to make another set of gift tags. This time I used Make a Wish from There She Goes and some delicious purples.

I added a tag topper using the Keeping Tabs Die from Taylored Expressions. After adhering to the tag with glue I added a jumbo eyelet. I threaded some white silk ribbon through the eyelet and then then tied in place with some black twine. I inserted a jump ring through the knot of the twine and add a little oval tag.

I stamped and punched out the 'Yum yum' background circle, punched out and mated on a slightly bigger circle of black cardstock. I then adhered this piece to an scalloped circle and added some pewter Liquid Pearls. I then stamped the hat, colored, cut out and accented with a bit of glitter and Glossy Accents. To finish I added a bit of designer paper, a few rhinestones and some black velvet ribbon - yummy!

Well, that is it for me tonight... I have a bit of cookie decorating to finish! :)
