SU Tag It with SU Tag-a-Bag Bundle

These cute little Tag-a-Bags from SU just make me smile. I especially liked using the SU Tag It stamp set that is the current catalog’s Ronald McDonald House stamp set that gives $3 to the charity when purchased. I decided to make one into a Get Well Soon gift for Tara’s Lovin’ Tags challenge at The Friday MashUp # 122.  However,  I feel like I might be needing one of these Get Well Soon Tag-a-Bag gifts after I finish moving my three kids into their new apartments in three different states…I am feeling tired and worn-out right now. How many of you are in the same boat these days?

Get Well Soon Tag a Bag

Here is what I put into the Get Well Soon Tag-a-Bag:
pocket tissues, cough drops, and a Lipton Cup-a Soup packet.

SU Mixed Bunch

Happy 1st Anniversary to Dynamic Duos Challenge Blogspot #52!
DD#52

I celebrated with them by using Challenge #42 Garden Green and Daffodil Delight to create a little gift for someone. This water bottle with lemonade is the perfect way to say I am thinking of you or thankful for you…maybe for a teacher, a bus driver, your postal worker- think of all the people you interact with on a daily or monthly basis. I picked Dasani water because it has a Garden Green colored lid;)

And, CASology #44 this week is BLOOM, and this project is so CAS I am going to share it over there too!!

SU Word Play Mother’s Day Candle Gift

You have already seen the card I made for my wonderfully awesome mom last month but…here’s a little gift to go with the card. We made these at Stamp Class as a gift for a mother or a friend…or for yourself as some gals said they were keeping it!! I used the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and used coordinating colors to embellish a sweet blue candle. One friend said she was going to use this idea for shower favors…

Some tags for wrapping…

Some friends and I got together to make some quick gift tags last week…the bottle tags were changed very little from Mary Fish’s tags… I added some branches to the hat and  a felt ribbon scarf to the Snowman that came from Connie Plaumann, and the Do not open ’til Christmas tags were a CASE from Linda Heller. Thanks ladies for the great ideas!!
