More Easter Tags!

Hi! I hope your having a lovely Sunday! If you've been reading the the news you've probably heard about the severe weather ravaging so much of our nation over the past few days. One of our daughters lives in Alabama and has been in the middle of the devastation caused by the tornadoes. My heart goes out to all those who have lost loved ones or property. We went through Hurricane Hugo back in 1989. I will never forget the terror of that night or the difficulty experienced in the aftermath of the storm. I recently clipped a quote to my bulletin board. It touched me because of a situation I'm currently experiencing in my own life.   

'The rainbows of life follow the storm.'

I pray everyone affected by this most recent disaster will find their own rainbow waiting for them somewhere at the end of this difficult journey.   

On a happier note, I have a couple more Easter tags to share before I move on to my next project.      

It's difficult to see in the photos, but I added some detail to the bottom of each tag by creating a lace border with my favorite Martha Stewart punch. I hand crinkled the seam binding for a more shabby appearance, then added a paper flower and some fibers to soften everything up.   

I hand cut each tag and embossed them to add some interest and dimension. Each image is 'framed' with a border of lace and pearls for a more feminine look. 

These are so fun and easy to create! I originally crafted four for the YPP tag swap, then ended up making a big batch to give as Easter gifts for my friends. 

Thanks for stopping by and sharing a bit of your time! Your visit has brought a joy to my day and I hope you'll return again and again! Hugs,
