Seems holidays creep up on us so quickly lately and I can't help myself when it comes to puttering with a project at the very last  Anything that doesn't move around here is fair game in my eyes;) 

We'll be celebrating Easter over at my brother & SIL's place and we had this bottle of champagne begging to be opened, sitting on our counter.  I decided to make a little tag for it to wish them a 'Happy Spring'. 

Several years ago I purchased a couple of list pads from our local Dollar Tree.  Who could resist these with little fairy girls on them I asked myself!  They have sat in my art room for forever it seems.  I couldn't get myself to use them for just grocery lists, they were just too cute.   However, she was just begging to be used in some artistic way.  With that in mind, I cut out a cream colored bottle tag from a die I purchased from 'My Favorite Things'.  I sponged the edges with cotton candy distress ink.  Then I glued the little girl image onto a recycled cereal box and fussy cut her out.  I mounted her to the tag with foam dots.  Then I punched out little butterflies from the same paper she was printed on (sponging the edges lightly too) and some pink flowers from a dollar punch I bought at Michaels awhile ago, randomly gluing them around her.  I also attached a piece of lace to the bottom of the tag and added a strip of Washi tape above that .  I stamped the 'Happy Spring' from a stamp I had in my stash (I think it's from Hero Arts) and cut the edges with a decorative scissors.  I glued that to a scrap and cut it out again, mounting it to the tag with foam dots.  I tied a strip of ribbon into a bow (that was part of a child's skirt that I also purchased awhile ago at The Dollar Tree).  For a quick project I think it turned out rather sweet.  Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and thanks for stopping by:)
