Hello! Happy Valentine's Day! Happy sweetheart day! Hope you have a fun day with your sweeties today. I'm so fortunate to have an awesome valentine - and I never take that for granted. It's our 22nd VD together this year! My hubs is the best a girl could ask for. I am spoiled way more than I deserve, truly. God sent me this man to take care of me and be my protector and warrior. My best friend. Someone who puts up with me (which is harder than it might seem at first!) A blessing. Today we will go and do something fun together!
I made my Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015 February tag last weekend and thought today would be the best day to post it and share with you. The tag for this month is really cool (as always, right?) and spoke to me right away. I loved the red felt mixed in with the metal and different papers. Also, the neat technique of making a patchwork out of different papers. So, here's my take on it! I chose papers and sentiments to make a Valentine tag. You can see how I put in some different VD references....in the calendar and the little tag. This one was fun!
I hand dyed my own ribbon as I love to do! This one is two shades of distress ink - Festive Berries and Barn Door. I added a clip and a pretty heart at the top too.
I cut the felt heart out using a movers and shapers die from Tim Holtz and then added it to a pretty Ideaology metal frame. Before assembling everything, I tucked a bit of crochet lace underneath.
Here is Tim's GORGEOUS inspiration tag!
Here you can see all my layers of different papers...oh and my little section of music notes rub ons at the bottom. CLICK HERE for the tutorial on how to make the cool background!!!
I added some words at the bottom too - wanted some accents! I edged everything in Black Soot ink - including the words. Then, I used the spritzer tool and the Barn Door Distress Marker to add speckles.
And....as a little treat for those of you who LOVE Buddy as much as I do....Here's a photo of my boo boo kitty from when he was a young lad on his first Valentine's Day! He is such a good sport don't you think? This would have been 2008. We used to dress him up for every holiday, and he would just sit there, and look adorable. Oh gosh, he is the best! In this picture he would be about 10 months old. L-O-V-E!
So, Happy Valentine's Day from Buddy too! XOXO
Have a very happy Valentine's Day weekend my friends!
