Snowflake Tag

Another tag for Loll's Tag Event

I love snowflakes and the white embossed snowflakes 
are so pretty on the Lost Lagoon cardstock.

I've stamped and embossed the snowflakes and sentiment in white,
daubed a little Whisper White across the background, die cut and dry embossed.

Addicted to CAS is asking for tags too.

Many of you know that I've been a full time Nana to Luke and Jack for 5 years.
They moved to a town a little further away last Spring and bringing them to us became
more difficult.  And DH and I don't move fast enough to get over there by 7:30 in the morning!

Luke is in 1st grade now.

And Jack started in Daycare on Monday.

I sure do miss him.

We talked on the phone last night and he blew me lots of kisses.

He's also left me with the virus he had a couple of weeks ago.

I've had a raging fever since last night.

I'm really glad I didn't have to keep him today.

But I'm hoping for some more phone kisses tonight.

I'm glad you stopped by.

Hope you're feeling well.

Oh, Bonnie! Take care of yourself and start feeling better soon! I'll be thinking about you.
Luke and Jack are both cuties! So nice to have them live close by so you can see them often.

Love your tag! The shape of it is so pretty and the snowflakes are gorgeous. They look beautiful against that color card stock.

Oh dear--take care of yourself, Bonnie! Harder for us old folks to get rid of the bugs, it seems. They are so adorable--I can only imagine how much you miss them. Beautiful card with those delicate snowflakes!

Loll Thompson said...

Marybeth said...

Oh I bet that is the hardest thing not to be with them everyday and then wonder how they are. They are both so adorable..... I am sure they miss you too.
Love the way you used this tag, and the small snowflakes are so pretty on that color.

Colleen Dietrich said...

Bonnie, I hope your fever goes down soon. It is no fun sharing things like a virus with the ones you love. Get plenty of rest.

It sounds like a difficult situation with the kids being further away from you now. Will someone else have to watch them?

Your tag is beautiful! The subtle white sponging gives it a suede look.

I love those wonderful snowflakes and the pretty color background.

Bonnie, Luke and Jack are so cute..just look at that big smile on Jack's face....just melts your heart, doesn't it. I know you miss caring for them.

I'm so sorry you picked up that bug, though. Take very good care of yourself.

Marisa said...

Beautiful tag, Bonnie - love the sentiment being on vellum and then attached with the snowflakes - a great idea! Wishing you a speedy recovery from the virus.

Gramma Sarah said...

So sorry to hear you are sick. I so enjoy your blog - as I do Loll's too - you are both so inspirational. This tag is so calm and wintery! Love it.

What a beautiful delicate tag. Love those snowflakes against that dusky blue and of course love your stitched die shape. Also impressed with the challenge photo leading this post, and thinking "Now why didn't I do that?". Hope you are feeling much better tonight, and tfs the pictures of these 2 cuties. I bet they miss you just as much as you miss them. Sure look like sweeties for sure. Have a restful weekend, and hope the weather cooperates to get you feeling back in the pink real fast. Big hugs.

Mary Marsh said...

really pretty cas tag you have created here Bonnie-hope you are feeling better-you should get an IPad that way you can FaceTime with the boys-I have one and my 3 yr old granddaughter in San Francisco calls me almost every night. You have a video call-its great technology-also thank you for the heads up on the Simon Says Stamp win-I didn't know

Brenda said...

What a pretty and fun tag Bonnie! I love the colors and I love that it looks pretty simple and quick to do! I'm sorry your sweet little guys moved farther away from you and I'm even more sorry that you got a virus from the little one. I sure hope you are feeling better now. I hope too that you can get more of those blown kisses!! Being a grandparent is the best isn't it?! Hugs, Brenda

Bonnie your tag is so elegant just like your cards. Cute boys. I have my two grandsons (5 & 8) yesterday and we made tree ornaments and brownies. Today I cleaned the kitchen. But I love it.
