Polka Dots...

Have you had a chance to go to Tag you're it! challenge blog yet? NO !!! Where have you been???!! Then you have sadly missed out on a treat- today they launched their second challenge which is;

This week's challenge is to make a Tag using Polka Dots. They can be on the tag itself, the ribbon, or maybe an embellishment, as long as it incorporates Polka Dots somewhere.

Ok so Sam and Anne were obviously setting this challenge with me in mind coz I luuuurve polka dots!! I managed 2 tags this morning;-

This one will be used at some stage by my daughter who seems to have a zillion friends who all need expensive Birthday pressies! She always wants me to use Love Elsie stuff for their cards so here is a tag for one of their pressies.
Recognise the ribbon and flower Sam? Sam very kindly sent me some very lovely goodies for my Birthday recently and these chipboard flowers were amongst them. I have triple embossed this as covering it with papers seemed far too fiddly!
The second tag was made using up scraps, I love this paper but haven't a clue where it's from! Maybe from an old SA kit? For this tag I used a bit of embroidery thread for the swirl and a little prima. More ribbon scraps as well.

I have more stuff to share but will save that for the weekend.
