Hi Everybody!
Hope your week is going well.

Fruit is something I do eat a lot of, but not something I would usually make a tag from! Anyways, I managed a quick and simple tag. I discovered a pad of paper with kitchen motives in my stash, and the cherry paper was in it too. I used three different papers altogether - the red gingham paper as 'tablecloth' with punched lace edges, The small cherries I used as BG paper and then a strip with the larger cherries, which I distressed with fired brick DI. I fussy cut more cherries and fixed them with foam pads to give more volume. I made a bow using raffia and fibres, and that was it! I am looking forward to eating cherries when they are ripe, as they are one of my fave fruits.

Have a great week you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
