A Perfect Pear

Hi!  My hubby's aunty has a crafty store called Cute Stuff and indeed, she has a lot of cute stuff in it!  She has started doing monthly challenges too and I finally got a chance to participate this month.  The challenge for July was to make a tag and anything goes as long as it was a tag.  I knew I wanted to keep it fairly simple and use my Lawn Fawn Silly Valentine set.

I used one of PTI's tags and the congrats to is from their All About You set.  The pear couple is paper pieced as well as the red heart (velvet paper).  Tied on a matchy ribbon (from Xmas time) and some twine and then I was done. 

My tag was inspired by this card I had made for a cousin who got married.  The hearts in the background are from Lawn Fawn's Teeny Tiny Backdrops.  And I have to give some credit to my hubby who suggested I place a doily behind the mat (from PTI).  I liked it so I kept it.

My youngest had seen that I made a card and tag set and so he was inspired to make a set too!  I stamped some of the same images for him.

So this is what he created.  He colored, cut and glued them on and was happy he made a wedding card too with a tag!  He always wants to craft when I craft and so I give him lots of my scraps and the images that didn't stamp too well.  Then he wants his work photographed too!  Future blogger.

I will also be entering this set into Wee Memories Challenge #62 -- Clean and Simple

Thanks so much for reading and have a great weekend!
