Baby Blankets & Tags

It's my turn to host this weeks challenge and once again I tried to keep it as easy as I could so I thought buttons and bows. Now for those of you who remember, I am bow challenged, and couldn't tie a bow for the life of me, still can't. Then I found this Bowdabra thing at Michael's and viola, I'm making bows. and now I can't stop. I'm adding bows to everything. Ok enough of my rambling back to this weeks challenge. Just use one of Mo's adorable images add a button and bow and you're good to go.

Since, I have lots of new babies heading my way this year, two of my nieces are expecting, one we know is a boy, one we don't know what it will be, so it will be a surprise. I am knitting up a storm. Plus one for one of the teachers at work and the Assistant Principals daughter are also expecting. Out of the four pregnancies, three are due in July and one is due in September. So I thought what better way to tie the blankets off than to make these tags . I took out my Cricut Expression and used my Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge and cut these tags at 6", and printed the image on them using this beautiful image called New Baby that you can find HERE.

Here are three blankets blankets,

Here are the close ups of the Tags:

I am also entering this into the following challenge:

1. Paper Crafting Journey: HERE Pastels
2. Total Gorjuss: HERE Anything Goes with a Button

I hope I inspired someone to join in on the fun, I can't wait to see what you come up with, just don't for get to use one of Mo's images. If you need more inspiration don't forget to visit the rest of the teams blogs they really out did themselves and came up with some great ideas just click HERE to see what they came up with and as Pat always says, don't forget to leave them a little love.
