Birthday Tag.

Hello my friends and Happy Monday. I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was kind of busy, pulling a lot of weeds, mowing and a lot of yard work. Temperatures are getting comfortable to work outside (85F) and have some fun time with DD outside. We just found out she is very allergic to tumbleweeds, (Oh My!! We live in tumbleweed land, seriously!) so my work pretty much is to keep my surroundings clear of tumbleweeds (hard work) so DD can run around without being concerned if she touches one she can get a bad reaction.
Anyway, life must go on and we are planning some fun stuff before school starts and we all are very excited about it.

Today I have a cute Birthday Tag I made a couple of weeks ago, but the funny part is when I was ready to take the picture I couldn't find it anywhere!! I looked and looked everywhere, so I finally gave up. Few days ago I was looking for some of stamps and I found i, LOL. It was hiding under some Rub-Ons, now I have not idea how this tag ended up under the Rub-Ons, LOL.
Anyway, I cut the tag using a Cricut Machine, I sponged the borders with Canary and Orange Ink (Color Box) I added a piece of Patterned paper (Just Dreamy Collection). I stamped the cute image "Birthday Time Set (smARTworks)" two times, I colored only the cat in one and the hat and balloon on the other one. then I cut them out and positioned them onto the main image. I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Prismacolor Colorless Blender.
I cut the sentiment using the Cricut Machine. I stitched some White Ribbon and added some Green Rhinestones on top. Finally I added a lot of Gold Stickles.
