Happy Birthday Tag (and a Give-Away!)

Hi, Crafters! Today I have a birthday tag to show you using several of the Silhouette software features.

Click to enlarge
  • Silhouette ID# 23849 (guitar player - print 'n cut feature)
  • Music Note Punch - Hobby Lobby
  • Cardz TV Stamps - Good Times
  • My Scrap Chick - Narrow Borders A (grass)
  • Silhouette ID# 14239 (set of 5 rectangle shapes with postage stamp border)
  • Sketch Pens - internal offset feature changed to dotted line and used Sketch Pens for faux stitching instead of blade for cutting
  • Tim Holtz Walnut Stain for grass inking on top edge
  • Timeless Twine - Aqua Blue
This is one of 31 tags (all various styles and types) I am creating for a tag exchange.

I think it's time for another GIVE-AWAY!!  

Every now and then I do a give-away just for you guys that visit and comment on my blog. I don't advertise these give-aways because I'm not trying to pull traffic here just so they can win something. These give-aways are my thank you to YOU, my blog visitors and followers on a regular basis. You are much appreciated!  

Just leave a comment on this post and check back tomorrow to see if you won. (USA addresses only)   Be sure to claim your prize by Wednesday or the prize will be re-drawn at a later date for a different give-away. 

The prize is Jillibean Soup "Sending Thoughts" clear stamp set.
