Sankari is our hostess this week, who challenged us to create a tag! I used this fun image from The Cat's Pajama's from the Deck The Halls set
I cut the Flower Tag from my Cricut Tags and More Cartridge in a Brilliant Blue Cardstock. The top layer is from the Eskimo Kisses Collection from Basic Grey.
I coloured the cute Puppy with Copics, highlighting with Gel Pen and adding Stickles for some glitz!
A Red Button and Ribbon add a little extra zip to the green and blue backgrounds! Hope you'll play along with us and check out the CSAYL Blog to see what we all have been up to!

Here's a little Project that I created for my Cousin Nikki's Baby Jensen! I couldn't resist when I saw this sweet image from Pink Cat Studio Digital Store.
I have had some 5x7 canvas sitting around in my "collection" cupboard.........well actually it's more like Fibber McGees Closet........everytime I open it up, it means clean up because it's just Way to full.............so I am going to try to challenge myself to make it managable by actually using some of the "stuff" in it!
This was an easy peasy project! I cut some card stock at 5x7 and using some sticky adhesive, coloured the canvas. I used some Dark Brown Pigment ink around the edge to soften them down.
The Stars were cut with Sizzix Dies and Inked with that Dark Brown Ink. Chocolate Ribbons and Buttons add a nice complimentary colour.
The Large initial J is stamped, cut out and embossed with a cuttlebug folder. Itty Bitty Bobby is coloured with Copics, highlighted with White Gel Pen, cut out and mounted on dimensionals.
Holes were punched in the top of the Canvas with a Cropadile.
Honestly, I think I had this project completed in just over a half an hour!
I absolutely LOVED this past Digi Release and you will absolutely see more projects created with these cute cute images!
