Slow Weekend

Well, I did exactly what I said I wasn't going to do for a while, joined a couple of swaps.  I couldn't resist.  I saw the many that were going on in the Facebook groups I belong to.  I couldn't resist.  So I have two that I joined.  One is a St. Patrick's Day tag swap.  The other is a Spring themed mini loaded envelope.  

So, for me I didn't get any cards done.  I did start on the tag swap.  You know what that means?  I bought some cute digital images of course.  I did find some I liked on Cricut Design Space but not exactly what I was looking for.  So a visit to Lori Whitlock's shop and Miss Kate's Cuttables solved that.  

Want to see what I purchased?  From Lori Whitlock's site I got this.  From Ms. Kate's Cuttables I couldn't resist this cute owl.  (No affiliate links, I just like these images).

I got a couple of the tags pretty much done and I did the unthinkable....I tore the top of the tag.  But I got a great suggestion from a fellow crafter when I posted my plight to the group.  A tag topper.  I think that will work.  It will cover the tear and make the top of the tag sturdier.  

Today, I just worked on the tag topper and a couple of other cut outs I want for the third tag.  Once I get everything complete I will put a teaser photo up for you.  I don't want to show the tags until the person receiving the swap gets them.  It's kind of a downer if you post something if you see pictures before you receive your mail.

Otherwise, it was a slow craft weekend.  I did some prep work for the loaded bag.  Started designing that along with some other cards I want to do in my head.

I will be back soon to get some challenges done, but just wanted to let you know I am still creating just not anything I can show yet.

Tell me about your creative you always crank something out every week, or do you have downtime like me?  I love hearing everyone's stories so feel free to share in the comments below.
