Tour de Freaks – Jan 17

freakwelcome2013Happy January Control Freak Blog Hop everyone!

We are once again having fun with all of our new stuff in the Occasions Mini and the Sale-a-bration brochure.  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from Amy Koenders’s blog – weren’t her projects fun!

One of the things that first caught my eye in the Occasions Mini (well besides the dragonflies of course) was the Timeless Tags Thinlits…how cool these are!  Today I’m going to share three cards I made.  I decided to pair it with the cool piece of specialty paper in the Affectionately Yours Specialty dsp.

    The problem with these blog hops is I find so many projects with products I don’t have, and then my wish list gets so long, and I have to place another order and I have already made 2 orders in 2 weeks! I love these tags so much, and have to have them NOW!

  3. I’m with you, Mary …. the Timeless Tags bundle really excited my imagination (after I got over the impact of the Dragonfly bundle, that is)! LOL Your middle card with the sunflower-type image is ESPECIALLY beautiful and paired with the copper is oh la la beautiful!!
