My sketch for challenge #3

I find it great to be challenged to create stuff and then even more challenging to make the time to do the challenge...but, I'm really trying to keep up because there are so many times when I really want to do things, I mean too many things and end up doing nothing!! Can anyone relate?? Well, I did do my tag for Jen's sketch challenge #3. Here it is! I had to use a different tag than the one Jen used because I don't own that tag die. But, I got permission from Jen to use this jumbo scallop tag (a original sizzix die). I used the Zoofari set and the hostess level 1 set called Reason to Smile (and Jen gives us reasons to smile!). I also used the new rhinestone circle brads (they are so cool!). I used the circles from the Pick a Petal set and stamped them on the tag with Green Galore. I'm not too crazy about that color combo, but it turned out not too bad. Used the 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches and SU grosgrain ribbons. Speaking of...did you all get to see the retired accessory list? OMG! I cried when I found out that all of the ribbons and even the cording (gold, copper and silver) will be gone! I sure hope we're surprised with something totally awesome. Only 10 days to order all of this stuff...is anyone stocking up on ribbon and other stuff retiring?? Okay, I'm signing off...I'm at peace right now, husband at a soccer meeting, son at a friends house...aahhh...time to get creative! Gotta get off of the computer first! The weekend is almost here!!

Hey Teri, the tag came out really cute! I was going to use that tag die cut too since I don't have one like the one on Jen's sketch. Well, we'll see if I even get to make one.

Cute tag! I love orange. I should make more things using that color. I didn't use a diecut tag for my submission, I just used a circle cutter for the top of the tag.
