~ TYI ~

morning chickies! got a few projects created ~ whohoo! my mojo is half fast working. still can't seem to create a lo for the life of me. don't know what's up with that. so, i'm keeping it simple and going small ....for now! here's my tag for this week's challenge over at ~ Tag You're It ~ there's a recipe this week ~ 1-2-3 check it out chickies ~ lots of fun and sure does get ya thinking outside the box. the ribbon on my tag unties to open a window that reveals a stamped sentiment.

the second project is a box of cards created using LOC stamps ~ a lil bit of handcutting ~ a lil bit of stamping and whalaa! the card was also created using LOC stamps ~ stamping, embossing and handcutting. well ~ that's it for my goodies today ~ i'm off to take dh to an appointment today and work my way through that pouring rain. have an awesome happy scrappy day chickies.
