MFP Swan and Puppy Tag




I adore this image from Mark's Finest Papers! The name of the set is Our Side of the Pond, and in addition to the swan and the cattails, there is a wonderful frog, great sayings, and a dragonfly.


I hadn't intended to take part in the CC today. We went to a reunion on Sunday, and three of the people who were there are coming for lunch today. Yesterday, DH and I spent the day cleaning!! WOW! I want to rope off the rooms, they look so nice!!

I'm working on a three day headache, and really don't have much ability to concentrate, but the challenge today was so easy, I thought a simple card was called for. I cased a card by Karen Dunbrook that was framed and masked, but with trees.

This of course is framed and masked, but with my wonderful swan. I hope you like it.




This tag is for MMTPT111 and for Speedy's Friends Challenge #20, to use Fall colors.

I needed a tag to add to a bag of snacks for a friend's birthday. I used "More of Speedy the Cat's Friends" image of the dog, added a ribbon to his neck, and some ribbons and bone charm, just for fun.


Have a great day. No comments from me until later in the week, but I promise to catch up with you all!!
