Daffodil tag

Happy Tuesday! I love short weeks, I hope everyone had a relaxing Memorial Day. I have enjoyed making tags lately instead of the standard cards. This one uses another set from PTI: Year of flowers Daffodil. I love their flower sets, they are designed so pretty and are easy to apply different techniques on them. This one I used paper piecing, the background was stamped with a script in a dark brown and a dot stamp in a lighter brown. Then I stamped the image in black for placement and then stamped again on various colors to make up the flower. The images were cut out and and attached to the tag. I cut the butterfly out of the same pattern paper.

Owen had the best day ever (according to him) last week, when a friend of ours invited him to check out their Swamp Logging operation. Owen love the show Swamp Loggers, and before this he was sure he wanted to be a Landscaper like his Daddy. Then he saw all the awesome equipment they use when they log around this wet NC land and he was hooked! Poor Chris he is no longer Owen's idol, it is Mr. Wes! Owen was on cloud nine when he got home, had me print his pictures so he could show everyone at school. We are so appreciate of our friend for taking the time to have Owen over, he absolutely loved it!


  1. What a dream come true for a little boy!! Sounds like he had so much fun! Love your tag, Tanya! The split background looks wonderful behind the beautiful daffodil!

  2. Wonderful tag. Really like the paper piecing with the daffodil and they way you did the background! WOW! I bet Owen did have fun! Lots of big boys would have liked that opportunity.

  3. Wow, this is an amazing looking tag, love how the flower is such the perfect focal point! Perfect colors!
