Greeting tag - you're it!

I know a few mothers who would really like to make cards to give on special events but ... well, with feeding the baby, being attentive to kiddies hyper-powered on renewable energy (can't someone harness that energy into something that they could sell to the rest of us?), picking up after hubby, and, on top of all of that, some are holding down stressful jobs - making cards must seem like a luxury. So, being the pragmatic problem solvers that they are, some of them have subscribed to the notion that a gift tag is all that is needed. A snazzy tag with a pithy greeting accompanied by the identity of the gift-giver and it is done! And I suspect that the really great aspect for these mothers is that there is so little room on the tag that no-one can seriously expect them to write much on it. Zero composition time! Hmmm...I wonder if I can come up with a blog on a tag...

Thank you, Kari. Your Blue Bayou card received a very good punching - it turned out wonderfully!

Welcome to my blog, stamping gals - or is that stamping gal, in this case? This set was one of my first, too, as it was in the starter kit. Your blog tag game combined with blog candy is ingenious - go try it everyone!
