- I love making tags. They are like therapy.
- There is no pressure to make them archival like scrapbook pages. They don't have to tell an accurate story to my (hopefully someday) grandchildren and great -grandchildren. Tags don't have to be send-able or sell-able like cards.
- I made the background on this tag when I was playing around making Tim Holtz style tags. It's blueness sat on my desk for days waiting for a purpose. I decided to stamp a few trikes on it using Distress ink. I stamped the first one and them just stamped off the ink for the other images.
- I had made the Enjoy the Ride flag a while ago for a different project and just pulled one out of the precut/prestamped drawer of my scrap storage.
- I thought it looked a little odd just sitting there so I decided to stitch it on the tag. I used embroidery floss and in retrospect I should not have used so many strands. The red was lonely so I stitched the 3 x's at the bottom of the tag. To complete the triangle I added the red ribbon.
- I placed the tag on a kraft card and thought it was too plain so I added white polka dots. It's a simple card but I like it.
