 Good Morning Monday!!!! 
Not really sure where the time is going to... but I am enjoying as much as possible... I am starting off the spring season with all kinds of good things... not only in my art ....which is the prime mover these days... but also in the house, and kitchen... canning has already started and I am loving it...  Love the look of these veggies all ready to be stored and eaten at a later date... LOVE IT...    So today is a GOOD day... in so many ways..    

Of course Mondays is also a CHALLENGE day... and today this tag is for two of them... Stamper Sunday... Birds... and Simon Says Stamp and Show...  make a tag...  Generally when I start out I have a certain look I want... and today I got nothing at all onto the tag that I had planned!!!  LOL..I wanted a tag in the pocket... and I wanted a flying bird charm...  but.....

 Oh well... I did have fun making the tag... Got very inky... which is a good thing... and used up some things that were on my work table that I didn't want to throw away... and wanted to use... so that is very good... I also pulled out and used some of the new things I had gotten a week or so... so that is fun to use NEW things...  

 This is the main part of the tag...  the little bird is from a TH die cut... and I used some distress stain to color it... then used a TH stamp to put the weathered lines on it... and then some TH tissue paper to make the wing.... do you think this is TH bird???  I think it is... 

I then used a Key hole... TH Idea-ology...  as I wanted to make it a perch for the bird to stand on...  and then dangled the BREATHE philosophy word off the key plate with a new kilt pin... that is what I call those pins... as I always wore kilts in school when I was young... and was always loosing the pin...  My mother was always buying new ones.. they were a little bit larger than this one to say the least...  The pocket made from a paper that was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and dyed with Mini misters I mixed... holds a little heart accordion book... which you will see more of below...  and a vial label with words from a TH stamp...  
 The words all around the tag are Chit Chat words from Idea-ology .... love them...  but I have a hard time finding the words I want... and then I go with another whole saying... a little bit of a brain storming session when I use them... but aren't they cute... I love them.. 
 Here is my Heart book...  with little birds stamped on each heart... Inchies... love these stamps...  so cute too..  

The heart is dyed with Victorian Velvet and Current dyes.. by Distress and Adirondack...  by Ranger...  
On the back of the book... I stamped words and a little tiny bird stamp.. so sweet... and a place for a message of some kind...  

I also have used a stencil on the top of the background .... after I had created my color of the tag with inks on my craft sheet....  I just assume that you everyone knows that... but hey... I love it all... and hope that you have a fun day creating too... 

I have to do some things around the house this morning... and might be able to get back into the studio prior to dinner tonight...  we are having left overs tonight... as I really spent a lot of time yesterday cooking... and enjoyed that too... 

Have a fun day... thanks for stopping by for a visit... and I hope you will come back again tomorrow... I am sure that I will have something new on here for you to see... 

Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
