Tag You're It! Challenge #5

Hello friends.  A quick post here, but wanted to share a couple tags I made for the new challenge over at Tag You're It! Challenge.  They are both basically the same tag, except for the sentiment and color of ribbon at the top.  Take a look:



 
 
I became a grandma for the first time this week, so the top tag is going on one of the (many!) gifts I'm bringing for little Adelaide Grace (Addy) tomorrow when we visit again.  And she is absolutely beautiful, so I figured this was a fitting tag to put on her gift!  I used PTI's "Tag Sale #3" with kraft cs, and then stamped dots with white ink and PTI's "Polka Dot Basics" stamp set, and the flowers from SU!'s "Flower Patch" stamp set.  The bottom tag is basically the same except for the sentiment and used a Pool Party seam binding ribbon instead of the Melon Mambo ribbon I used on the top tag.
 
Here is the beautiful inspiration photo we had to work with for this challenge:
 
  
 
 
Aren't they SO pretty?!  There's still time to play along, and having tags on hand is a great way to add a personal touch to a small gift or goodie to show someone you think they're special!  You can find all the info and play along right here .
 
And one last photo of my hubby holding sweet little Addy (he was the only one she would open her eyes for the night she was born!!):
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a fantastic weekend! :0)
