You're Brilliant!

It's the weekend! Yeah! My husband, Tom, is running a 1/2 marathon this morning in Columbia, SC. Wish him luck!

Don't forget to set your clocks ahead tonight. Daylight Savings Time begins. :)

I am LOVING playing with the My Creative Time goodies I got in early this week. It's so fun to use dies and stamps sometimes and not always turn on the Cameo for die cutting. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE MY CAMEO! It's nice to switch things up now and then so we don't get in a creative rut.

Tag created by me using Silhouette Software 
(Okay, so I turned on the Cameo for that. LOL But I actually cut out a bunch of tags at one time early this week and just set the stack aside to pull out and use now and then.)
My Creative Time supplies:
  4x4 Journal Die + More (rounded, stitched square)
  You're Brilliant (sentiment stamp, light bulb center stamp, and light bulb die) 
White Gel pen for faux stitching around tag (Royal Castle Shop)
Chevron ribbon and twine from stash
Everything inked around the edges with various inks

There you go! Clean and simple. This would make a great bookmark.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Smiles! :) Janis

  1. Cute tag Janis, I love using MCT products. Emma's products make it so easy to throw something together fast and it will still look as though you spent a lot of time on it. Good luck to your husband in his marathon as well!
