A wish for my friends..

I have the most amazing bunch of friends and some of them craft. We share that joy of a stolen hour to let our creativity run riot..
When the Grungy Monday challenge 19 was about Tim Holtz's re-use of packaging I though immediately of the Stars cuttlebug embossing folder "wishing upon a star" fitted perfectly with the Sunday stampers challenge

I cut a tag using Tim's wonderful large tag die (get's well used in my house!!) I decided on a bright theme and used Wild Honey, Victorian Velvet and Tumbled glass distress inks. I used my "friend" Stampin up background stamp for an all over background. The packaging technique was fun and I love the idea of using it at Christmas for snowflakes etc.. I wanted it to stand out a bit more so I wiped Peony ecoGreen crafts acrylic paint over it. The sentiment stamp was from Dimension Fourth and said what I wanted and hey who can resist the dymo now I have one (I've wanted one since I was a kid!)

I need the challenges to make me squeeze my craft into my week, I am really grateful for the help so thank you to all you challenge setters :-) They give me inspiration and a deadline. My tag is really for all those friends that craft or have a special something you want to fit in, I wish for you more time and joy!
