APRIL TAG ALONG AND CROCUSES

I have much to learn in the process of making these Tag-A-Longs. First, is be consistent in size! My first tag, last month, was 6" x 3" (15cm x 7.5cm). This month it is 4-3/4" x 2-1/2" (12cm x 6.5cm). I'm not as happy with this one, as I think of things I "should have" done instead of what I did; such as, use a floral ribbon and save the cherries ribbon for a summer tag. And, I don't like the butterfly - I glued it on early and then realized I couldn't reposition it. Ah, well, live and learn!

April . . . a nice red dotty umbrella for April Showers, green patterned paper (DCWV) for Spring greens, a little bunny for Easter, and a girl with a ball for finally being able to play outdoors! Hmmm, if I have time, I might make a new one this week!

If you need me I'll be outside "playing" in the garden!

I think it looks great. But you are probably like me a newbie..and a little bit scared of experimenting with the different textures...just hang in there..and the fun part... you can always do it again!!

Sue,
Someething my friend Meri told me that I try to remember when crafting, don't glue anything until you are plesed with the whole thing. Sometimes I forget too! I think it is cute, as I do more I feel like "my style" is evolving...you will too! I love your crocus!!!!! They can't grow too well down here....and I have bunnies that eat the bulbs....but I can enjoy yours! :) Happy Easter!

Hi Sue,
I am trying to figure out these tag a longs. So each month you make one? I know Creative Breathing seems to be the host bit I can't find the "directions". Happy Easter by the way. I sent you a little
Easter package. Did you receive it? I received you Etsy purchase and am loving it.
Love,
Carey

Aren't you so happy to be able to finally see some bloom in the ground? I'm thrilled! I'm sure we'll both be out in the garden more often and less on our blogs. Be back to visit soon!
