Time: 3:00 a.m.
I've had tons on my mind lately. Some things are NOT great but some things are wonderful and have me looking to the future. With all these things on my mind, I have been struggling to get a good night sleep. Tonight I did an absolute no-no. Insomnia 101: Rule # 1 - when you have a night when you can't sleep, never....... I mean NEVER do something that will stimulate your brain. Only do relaxing, peaceful things (ie. read, drink some warm milk or some sleepy time tea). Ummmm, yeah, obviously I did not obey rule #1. I decided to look at some stamping stuff, which led to me looking at the challenge over at Meljens Design - tags. I LOVE making tags. Sigh! So much for not stimulating the brain!!
I am really just kidding. I was able to whip these cuties up in about 15-20 minutes. They do have me inspired though. I'd like to make a few sets of these and post them in my Etsy shop - all proceeds going to breast cancer research, of course.
One of my favorite digi stamp companies is Meljen's design and this hope ribbon is awesome. Breast cancer has had a huge impact in my life (my Mother was a survivor - she had breast cancer in the late 60's), so this image hits my heart. So super simple to color but makes a huge statement.
Pardon my blury picture. My photography skills are not great at this time of the night! lol! Not only did I pop the layers of the tag but I also popped that cute little heart in the middle of the ribbon.
More soon - but hopefully not anymore tonight : )
