Needed a little change of pace after working on my Pikachu ornaments yesterday and I always find it easiest to make a tag when I want to shift gears or I’m low on mojo.  The smaller design space is much less daunting than that blank 4.25″x5.5″ rectangle.  Besides, I had a growing pile of cardstock and paper scraps on my desk from the gift bags I’ve been making for my dog bandannas.

I used a new MFT set featuring some very cute birthday bears.  I didn’t purchase the matching dies as that would have brought the cost of the stamp set to $50 USD – just not economically feasible at all!

However, I do have a Pixscan mat for my Silhouette so I stamped up a few images and cut them out for my tags:

Believe it or not, I’ve switched gears again and am working on another Beagle Paws fundraiser – Happy Howlidays II.  It might seem early but I have a LOT to do in order to pull this off.  Must go play with some faux snow!
