March Homemaker Tag Along


Is it already time for the Happy Homemaker Tag Along?  I am running behind schedule not my usual punctual self.  Keeping with the theme of Nursery Rhymes I chose the three little pigs.  


Three jovial plump piggies playing in the sun.  Accented by vintage seam binding and button from my stash.


These images are off of an old greeting card that featured the treasured story.  The house is from an old card as well.  I borrowed this trick from Elizabeth.  It adds depth and layers.  Thank you E.
 Sweet little ducks peek from bottom...While the pigs dance at a raised distance with pop dots.
Just when you think its all fun and games, the big bad wolf comes from the back to huff and puff and blow the house down.


This 3rd month was the first time that I had to get tricky with my cuts to start saving on my paper. Probably should have done that earlier.   I am going to have to be even craftier next month and make sure I have enough for the two tags.  
On another note.  I have not been assigned a partner for this swap.  Miss E if you have someone you would like to send me the lucky recipient I would love to know who I am going to be sending these to.  
Linking this up to the other talented participants...take a peek to see the other creations!

As much as I love paper crafting, I've never attempted tags. Your images and all the little details are delightful.

PS. Tomorrow I board my plane for home. I'm ready to be with my girls.

We've all learned a lot from E. I was like you making my tag late, in fact just tonight. I'm only going to do one tag and not exchange I think. I love your theme, at this point I'm not liking mine so well.

I found your blog via a linky party post on Vintage Thingy Thursday at the Colorado Lady. I'm your newest follower! I love vintage ephemera and your tags are darling. I've never made a tag before but perhaps I'll join the fun soon. Your blog is just delightful. Thanks for sharing!

Oh Renee! I absolutely love you told "the rest of the story" on the back of your tag. My gosh are you ever a talented paper artist! Your work is so inspiring to me. You will be so pleased at the end of the year to have a collection of tags for yourself. Wonderful! Elizabeth PS I have paired you with Betty, She's Sew Pretty

Renee, Who doesn't love the Three Little Pigs? Your Tag is super and I love the details. I am worried for them due to that big bad wolf around the corner. Super cute!
