Thinking of You Tag

Hello "Shabby Friends"...
Can you believe it already Monday again and August is half gone....
since it is Monday, you all know what that means...
time for a new challenge at "The Shabby Tea Room"!!!

This week "Tina" is our hostess and she has provided us with the lovely photo below


  and asks that we not only get inspiration from the photo,
but to use a home and/or garden theme, colors from the photo and flowers!!


Our sponsor this week is Creations by AR and I chose this adorable

The file comes in PDF and SVG.....
I treated myself  to a Cricut Explore back in June and decided to finally get it out of the box
and give the SVG files a first time try for me....
I learned a lot making this tag.... 
and you will be seeing more SVG files on my blog in the coming days/weeks.

One of the things I loved about this tag is not only is it so darn easy, but the house is 3D!!!
It comes, with the tag base (which is a perfect size for any kind of tag), the banner,
all the house trims, lamp post, wreath, fence and a bit more I didn't use.


I added a kitty and a pretty little gal I had all made up and just sitting on my desk
all "dressed up and no where to go"...lol
She finally found her destination!!


I would love for you to  "hop" on over to "The Shabby Tea Room" and see what the other
"Shabby Girls" have to show you....
Join in with us if you can, Creations by AR has a lovely gift to the winner this week!!

Entering in the following challenges:

All Crafts Challenge.... Anything but a card
and
Classy Cards 'n Such .... Home Is Where The Heart Is
and
Monday Mood Board ....

This is so cool Diane! Love the scene you've created on your tag and your coloring of the cat is fabulous! I think this might be a good 'New Home' idea for my craft shows ... hopefully I'll have time to whip up a few! Thanks for always inspiring me with your clever ideas!

Oh, no you didn't! This is just too dang cute for words! The lady in her pretty flowered dress really caught my eye at first, but then there's the kitty and fence and the wreath on the lampost... not to mention the darling cottage. So much dimension and fabulous detail on one little tag! Love it!

Extra pretty Diane! Can't believe this is actually a tag and not a card.
