Happy Birthday/ CR84FN and 2Sketches4You

Hello!  I missed you all so much.  I have been busy trying to work out all the problems we had when we moved in.  The Hot Water heater broke and had to be replaced.  The Furnace had 2 filters that were sucked up inside making it very cold inside.  The phone line wasn't installed properly and we didn't have our home phone working for days.  The shower drain and handle had to be replaced as well as the Garbage Disposal had a crack and had to be replaced.  All things you can't see or notice until you move in.  I am mentally drained.  ;)
 I made this tag using the sketch at 2Sketches4You and the beautiful color combo that Mona has at CR84FN.  I am really loving all the tags I am seeing around.  I think that Michelle Wooderson and Melissa Phillips are the tag queens.  I am sure you can find some inspiration at their blogs if you need a little help.
 I embossed the tag with my Cuttlebug folder, added a Martha Stewart doily and a pretty Prima flower, lace and buttons. 
My sewing machine is totally messed up.  I didn't have the time to tinker with it, so my poor tag is stitch less.  :(  I think the tension is off.   That is at the end of my long list of "To-Do's" right now.  I still need to unpack the 3 boxes of bathroom supplies.  All my lotions, shampoos, and all that good stuff is sitting in boxes.  I really wanted to get my Christmas tree up today, but it just isn't happening.
 Look at this beautiful inspiration photo.  I was in love the moment I saw it.  These are totally my colors.  These are the colors in my bathroom.  My poor hubby hates it.  I told him to use my son's bathroom if he didn't like it.  Maybe I can have a male free bathroom.  Wouldn't that be great?  I think so.  :)
  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow with a project to share and some more of that good news I have to tell you about.  ;)

Big Hugs!
Heather

Well, I am happy to see these problems haven't affected your inspiration :). The card is lovely. I love the flower :)!

Oh..that is so pretty. I love the tags I've been seeing, too. The colors and materials you used are great. I think a "male free" bathroom would be great. Your new place should be good as new by the time you get all that fixed. Hope it's smooth sailing from there.
