Handmade with Love...

I have been in full-on Christmas mode and was, frankly feeling a bit bah-humbug. So, I thought I would take a break from making holiday goodies and made a mini card -- just for fun! When I saw this sewing machine image from the sweet Taylored Expressions set From the Heart, I thought I would make a little card featuring a tag that can be removed and used by the card recipient. I know a lot of craft gals, and a "handmade with love" tag is certainly something that would come in handy! To fasten the tag to the card, I simply threaded a piece of embroidery thread through a couple punched holes and tied it to the card. An easy snip with scissors removes it!
