yes, i am super late with my project for TheCuttlebug Spot. so late i told nilda she did not have to add it if she did not want to. 
the weekly challenge is to use buttons on your project.
i made a big tag.

5.5" tall
(i need to trim that upper left corner a bit--it is bugging me).
anyway, this tag started being a card, of course, lol. but by the time i finished it did not look like a card but a tag. so, i cut the other half and made it into what i guess it was supposed to be...a tag.
the base is from "just because cards", image#34 
using shift and adjusting the width with the gypsy to a 3.25.

i cut that shape three different sizes as you can see to add the layers to the tag.. the embossing was done with a sizzix folder called "snowballs" using my cuttlebug. i also used the "divine swirls" cuttlebug folder for the clouds from "paper dolls for everyday", image#15 using the accesories3 creative feature. the butterfly it is from the same cart-- image#3 using shift and accesories3.

here is the so very cute snail and the HUGE BUTTON from my vintage buttons box. the snail is from "creative a critter", image#44 flipped to the right. 
as you can see i finally got me some more hemp. i love using that stuff. now i have to get some ms twine.
i tried using the zip dry glue to adhere the button but it did not work at all so i used my trusty glue gun.

the stamp is from a my pink stampers set called "everyday life" you can see more of the sentiments and of her stamps if you click HERE.

well, i hope you join us at the cuttlebug spot weekly challenge and get those nice buttons out and play along. or just stop to see what my very creative team mates worked their butt-ons up to, hehe.

love you all!
