PIO #30 - Tag

Tags!  Dagnabbit!  That's the challenge this week at Pile It On.  I am awful at making artful tags, I see so many beautiful ones on other people's blogs but I just don't get the mojo for tags. 

If you're like me and not at all talented in the tag department then do what I do.  Make a little tag, write a sentiment on it and hang it on some ribbon or twine.  Over on PIO we don't mind if you make a little tag to hand off your creation or if you make a gorgeous stand alone tag.  We just want you to have fun and enter your creation into at least on other challenge.  We're the backwards rule on that one, some challenges want to limit the number of challenges you play in, but not us, we want to see as many as you can find but we'll settle for just one more.

This card was made with a Mo Manning digi image.  I purchased this image because it reminds me of my daughter and our poor kitty kat, Shamus.  Liddy used to drag him around like the little girl in the stamp.  In fact she still drags him around.  He puts up with it for awhile but he really doesn't like it.

Here's a picture I took while I was trying to color the image.  He loves to jump onto the desk while I'm working and he takes up most of the work space.  He must have known he was the inspiration for the card so he decided that he model for me.  I think that sometimes he jumps on the desk to tick off the dog, maybe it's just to get away from the dog.   Either way I'm pretty sure he knows the dog is jealous.  He stays as long as he likes or until I get up, then he follows me out.  It's kind of cute to be followed around by a cat.  

Here's the deets:
stamp - Mo Manning digi "Patience"
ink - hp printer
paper - Stampin' Up "Island Indigo " and "Lucky Limeade"; DCVW "the Pet Stax" dp

miscellaneous - copics; corner rounder punch; My Favorite Things "Mini Monarch" border and "Traditional Tag Stax" dies; cotton pearl; buttons; bling; cat charm; machine stitching
