So my "baby" started school this past year and him and his friends must have just learned how to play tag. I should clarify that...they've learned how to play freeze tag. He's learned it so well that now when I ask him to complete a chore or help with something, he'll stand frozen. After a minute, I clue in that he hasn't done what I've asked and then give him the look. He'll most often respond with: I can't move unless It unfreezes me. And you're not It.
He's a stubborn little one and I'm afraid this game will last for a while. Anybody care to volunteer to be It so he can get things done?
CAS-ual Fridays has another super fun challenge for this week: Tag, You're It! Create a clean and simple project that is a tag or features a tag. The fantastic sponsor this week is Purple Onion Designs!
You'll have to stop by the CAS-ual Fridays Blog to read more about the challenge and rules, find out what the prize is and see the beautiful and inspiring creations from the Girl Fridays.
We were gifted some lovely holiday stamps from our sponsor. After embossing the card base, I stamped the sentiment onto a separate panel and glued it to the base. A secret: I stamped the card base directly, but fudged it up, so therefore a separate panel. Then the sled was stamped onto a separate piece of cardstock, selectively colored with pencils and markers then cut into a tag shape and adhered to the card.
