That's how I feel when I make the time to "get my craft on"! I'm sure you are all in the same boat, you really WANT to make something, you want to scrapbook, you want to make a card or an altered item, but you just don't have the TIME!
That is when I break out my supplies for a "quickie" session of crafting and that temporary feeds my creative hunger!
So in the midst of a busy busy day, I whipped up this little tag in under ten minutes.

I got this gorgeous Hero Arts bird collage stamp last week when I went to Pat's Super Bowl Bash at One Little Spark (best stamp store around!) I also picked up the large manilla tags there, which made my quick project even quicker, who doesn't love pre-cut tags!?!?
I inked up this LARGE background stamp with a variety of different Tim Holtz Distress Inks* (love these!) and then outlined the bird with Stickles* to make him stand out.
I embossed the bottom with my Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder and added a ribbon* and a few rhinestones. The top was finished off with the same ribbon and stapled on with the Tiny Attacher*.
So break out your distressing tools and join in on the challenge! I know, none of us have the time, we have to MAKE the time! Trust me, you won't be sorry, feed your creative soul :)
p.s. *Remember Paper Wings will be re-opening on March 5th! All of these fun supplies marked with an (*) can be found there and LOTS more! Looking forward to creating with you this Spring!
