Some new ART....

....to share. Today I made 2 new objects d' ART. First up is a mini tag book I made for a monthly lottery, themed "Books." You simply take a large mailing tag and fold it, punch holes and bind it. Easy Peasy. For a closure I used silk flowers, buttons and clear elastic cord. The paper for the tag is a shiny, metallic specialty paper.

The second sharing is a card requested by a friend for her Mother's B'day. She is celebrating 95 glorious years!! How amazing is that?? Happy Birthday Nellie!! Her fave flower is the sunflower. I made her a jazzy sunflower envie which I think she will like.

The card is made from a wallpaper cut out and my new (Thanks Diann) Swiss dot cuttle bug folder. I really like how it turned out....simple yet effective.

The Inside verse I love:
As long as we have memories, yesterday remains.
As long as we have hope, tomorrow awaits.
As long as we have Art, today is beautiful.

I love both of your creations in ART, Shelly! I've made the tag booklets before and they are great fun to create and give. The card for Ms Nellie is just super and will bring a smile to her face for sure! Diann
