A {Lil' Inker Tag} Sketch For You To Try

Well, it's the weekend, so Happy Saturday! As I sat down last night to create for Jen's Sketch For You To Try, I was gathering my thoughts about what to do, stamps to use, papers, etc. Knowing that this week's sketch is sponsored by Lil' Inkers Designs (yay!), I wasn't sure what stamp set to pair it with, or whether to make an inspired patterned paper be the focal point.

Then it hit me--the sketch would work perfectly for a TAG!! Not that tags are any faster than making a card (trust me, sometimes that little "canvas" can be tricky!), I was excited to get started. Like I said before, Lil' Inkers is our sponsor this week and Laura has been so gracious as to let us use her Stamp/Die set called Sentiment Flags for our projects this week. Ya'll KNOW I'm a big fan of the "sentiment flag" style, so this little gadget is going to come in handy!

If I was a smarter girl, I would have done this a little differently and in all boy colors. I could have stuck a cookie in the tin and called it good. Eric's birthday is tomorrow and we are so thankful to have him here (he deserves a lot more than a cookie, but he would be surprised I made him this!). He said all he wants is to sleep in in the morning, so I think the girls and I will accomodate him. Who knows, maybe I'll get really motivated and make a big breakfast for him! I'll be going out this afternoon to see if there are any more American League Champions Ranger shirts blue...he looks terrible in red. Go Rangers!! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ERIC!!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Actually this whole post ought to be a tip. Use a card sketch to create a tag. Simple as that.

Remember to check out all the inspiration that can be found at each of the SFYTT sisters' blogs! Jen's on the lookout for the next Designer of the Month, so be sure to link up your creation to her blog this week. When uploading to online galleries, please use the keyword SFYTT!
