Thoughtful Thursday "Behind every cloud is a silver lining!"


Good morning my creative friends! Today we are featuring something new on my blog. It is called "Thoughtful Thursday".  We thought it would be fun to have a day for us to make a card for someone to cheer them up, congratulate someone, happy birthday....or just simply "just because"! I know we all make cards everyday, but this is perfect to make something for someone "specific" that you've been wanting to send a card to, but never had time! I have a friend who is having a hard time right now, so I just want to remind her that "Behind every cloud is a silver lining"! I decided to make a tag instead of a card today. 

In my video below, you can see how I put this together.  I was so happy to finally get to use my canvas & adhesive cork 12x12 sheets that I picked up from Hobby Lobby!  I used the cork paper to cut out my tag & I used the canvas to cut out my clouds. I also used some silver paper to cut another set of clouds to place behind the canvas clouds.  I decided at the last minute to add a Tim Holtz "hinge clip" to the bigger cloud. 

Here is my tag in its entirety! I had the worst time trying to get a good picture, but they all came out bad:( But it REALLY IS much PRETTIER in real life! ;) 

Supplies I used:
~ Tag Die (will be back in stock this weekend Mar 2nd)

Here is my video for you today!

Now onto my FABULOUS design team! Click on each of their names to visit each blog & leave them some LOVE!;) 








I hope you were inspired to make someone a card & send it off to them today! THank you so much for stopping by! Have a FABULOUS day my sweet friends! xoxo
