Tags, Twine, and & Sketch

Here's the fun challenge for CAS(E) this Sketch #22. I liked the tag right smack dab in the center, so I combined this challenge with the OWH Stars and Stamps mid-week throwdown challenge to use tags 'n twine.

I made a large tag that accommodates this great SimonSaysStamp sentiment.  It's from a set called "Shoot for the Stars." I used patriotic colors since this will be going into my next OWH box. I used some washi tape across the bottom with some twine and punched stars, a star sticker, and a mini star brad. I added scoring for the horizontal panel that might be more visible if you click the photo to enlarge it.

Back to the laundry and cleaning! I'd rather be stamping, but somebody's got to get the house work done :) Have yourself a great weekend!

Carol, an awesome, patriotic tag on your CAS card. Just fabulous!

You house clean and I'm working in the yard. It's beautiful and warm.....and, I am now TIRED. But, loving it. I'm on a little break.

I don't know how you can concentrate on house cleaning when your mid is so busy designing such fabulous cards. This is a fun card and I love that sentiment.

Who invented housework, anyway? It certainly wasn't a card maker!
