Springtime in January

SPRING
I feel like I am definitely jumping the gun on the seasons here.
I know a lot of our snow melted last weekend but
that doesn´t mean it´s spring.
These two tags came about because a bunch of my painting
friends and I are taking one of our friends out for a
surprise birthday dinner to a restaurant called
The Maganolia. I was in charge of making the card.
The photos came from a friend. I cut out the magnolias
and collaged them onto a handpainted background.
Added a strip of fabric along the top edge and finished
it off with a few stamps, papers and ribbons.



Gabi´s Tag
This is the tag we will give Gabi.
Here I added the knife, spoon and fork because on the back
it says,,,,one free dinner at The Magnolia.
Gabi loves to knit so I added and over abundance of fibers.
She can later use this as a bookmark and have a little
keepsake from all of us for her birthday in 2011.
This dinner came at the right time as these tags
fit right in over at Tag Tuesday with a bit of fabric.
Also at Wednesday Stamper where the theme is music.
Even at Take a Word where everything is beautiful.
And last but not least,,,Theme Thursday featuring spring.

ooo Love the tags and they certainly picked the right person for the job

enjoy your special get together at Magnolia...we have a restaurant named the same in a nearby town...sounds very southern!

the Magnolia trees were blooming when Mr M and I were married almost 30yrs ago...along with Dogwood and others...which hardly ever happens in April...ok you got me going down memory lane with your beautiful creations dear Cyn...the fibers are the perfect accent too!

Have a super weekend my friend!
