Neighbor's Baby Tag.

Good morning!  I have a tag to share today that I made last night for a baby gift.  Our newest neighbors had a baby on Monday and we picked up a little something for them this week. 

Now you know I've been crazy busy this week and if I'm being completely honest, I haven't been feeling very crafty either.  The longer I go without crafting, the harder it is to get anything accomplished.  But last night I headed downstairs, without a plan, and whipped up this tag.  It felt great!  I wish I had had more time to work on stuff, that's how great it felt :)

I started out with a small piece of Kraft cardstock and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  Then I adhered the Kraft piece to a plain shipping tag.  I trimmed off the excess.
I grabbed a couple of pieces of Dear Lizzy Neapolitan paper and played around with the lengths and widths.

Then I trimmed out the baby carriage from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge (cut at 2 3/4") and I popped it up on pop dots.  To that I added a smaller shipping tag that I had stamped with a Papertrey Ink sentiment.

It still looked a little plain to me so I added a couple of buttons for good measure :)

I don't have ANY baby papers, stamps or embellishments so I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with this tag.  Ha!

Do you have big plans for this weekend?  We were thinking about going to the Drive In tonight with some friends, but now the movie we wanted to take the kids to see isn't playing, so I'm not sure what we'll do.  Tomorrow we're going to be getting ready for next weekends garage sale and then Sunday I'm hoping to RELAX!  Hahahaha! 

I wish you all the best weekend and a beautiful Friday.  Happy Mother's Day to all of the Moms out there :)  I'll see you soon, thanks for popping in today.

    I don't have many baby stuff either. Its fun to come up with ways to use your non-traditional supplies to make a certain type of project.
    This turned out great.
    I didn't know there were still Drive-Ins...brings back so many great memories :)
