Bahahahahaha!!!! This tag cracks me up! Remember when I made the background for this tag while doing my Dylusions Video? Well, I decided it was not yet complete after all. My friend Pam was having a birthday, and she needed a special tag! Bahahahahaha!!! I found this picture on another card and had to use it. I wanted the tag to be interactive, so I added the hinge and pulley so that a message could be revealed underneath. My beautiful and wise lady needed to be properly dressed up for the party, so she wore her diamonds and a bit of make up. The pressie had to be dressed up as well, so it got a little of the themed color scheme treatment also. Pam loved it!!!

I am submitting this party project to the Artistic Stamper's Creative Team Blog challenge of "Circles", and to Simon Says Stamp & Show's challenge of "Spritz, Spray, or Stencil".

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!


  1. Hello Anita
    Your quirky Tag is just superb, (I well remember it from the video!)
    The hinge and pulley have made it very special, I can imagine it created much hilarity when it was received, it is just terrific.

  2. Holy smokes Anita, I about hurt myself I was laughing so hard over your 'beautiful and wise' lady!!! The gift of laughter is the best present of all. I love that the tag is interactive! Great job on the wrapping, too. Your friend will love this!!
