Happy Pink Saturday and a GIVEAWAY

First I thought I would show you this sweet birdie I made for a special friend to give to her aunt that has an Ice Cream Shoppe. I had this wonderful old scoop with a turned wooden handle.
I'm working on this fabric "tag" I glued the glass piece on, then I found this wonderful dragonfly..its actually a hair clip.
My hubby and I taking a little mini vacation to eastern oregon from Sunday to Thurs. I always like to take something to work on...So I started these pink tags...I used so many techniques and colors to give them a lot of depth. I think a rose or bird nest will finish them off.
For my
***G I V E - A - W A Y ***
I will pick a winner on Thurs. for this crackled blue tag with the rose.
Please leave me a message
Here is my question...
Are you enjoying your summer????

Thank you to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for
hosting Pink Saturdays

Laurie enjoy your break from the hub bub of the city. Happy Pink Saturday. Love the post. Your tags are so beautiful. Wonderful job with the fabric. So creative. I have to tell you this has been a very hard Summer.

Memorable: My niece is very ill with cancer and fighting to live. I think the most memorable for me has been that I have learned to love everything around us, not take one single thing for granted, and as she loves gerbera daisies, I have learned to plant, nuture and love them too.

Have a wonderful time off. Thanks for sharing this Saturday. Country Hugs, Sherry

Hi Laurie
Another very darling birdie!! You sure are a pro at making them.
I would love to win your tag (and a birdie) !!! One can dream, right?!
No vacation this year for us...
Happy Weekend.
Deb :)

Sharon said...

Love what you are doing with the tags. Sharon

Deb said...

Gosh your tags are lovely as is your wee white bird. They are so delicate.
Summer will be fabulous I am sure when it comes as its winter here in NZ at present but we have been so lucky as it has been fairly mild. Spring is not far away though-wahoo.
Enjoy your break.

Lisa said...

your pink tags are fab.. i really love them...beautiful color and texture!
Summer is great.. but i really love the idea of fall being just around the corner :)

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Laurie.

You always create such beautiful pieces. And, thank you for the opportunity to win one of them.

I am enjoying summer, I try to enjoy every day. But, summer is not my favorite season because of the humidity. Our summer has not been quite as hot as most, it has been relatively mild. Summer is a very busy time for me at work.

What a lovely giveaway gift AND Pink Saturday post! You make such lovely things.

How adorable is that bird perched on the scoop! :-)And the dragonfly is a hairclip? How cute would that be in one's hair.

The pink tags are really beautiful. The work you must have put unto it. I like the embossed feel to it too. As with the blue one too. Lucky s the winner :-)

Have a safe trip and Belated PS!

I am enjoying my summer, however it's been a bit stressful...I'm moving to Oregon. It's a state away, so it's a big deal.
i hope you had fun on your holiday.

Utah Grammie said...

My little blue tags arrived in all their glory. Precious! Loved the envelope and all your touches there as well!

Safe travels...
