Please help me welcome Kari as my Guest Designer today!! :)

Happy Terrific Tuesday Love To Crop! Friends and Fans!! :)  Are you ready for my next Guest Designer???  I really need to thank everyone for helping me make this week EXTRA smooth and so much easier for me!!  While I'm busy preparing (-sob-) for my little girl's (high school) graduation party, my friends have rallied around to offer their help and support in keeping all of YOU entertained!!  Thank you SO much to Laura, Rhonda, and Kari!!  I hope you will continue to visit and encourage each of these wonderful friends as you have done for me!! :)

Okay...  So today I have for you my dear purple-loving friend and bloggie-land 'sister'...  Kari from PurpleFuntastick Creations!!  Kari and I met through a Blog Hop we were both in several months ago -- Her kind heart and spirit made us instant friends, and I have enjoyed getting to know her better ever since...  Kari is dependable and loyal.  She does everything she can to stay positive, and that's one of my favorite things about her!!  She has some really creative ideas, so I hope you'll stop over to visit her soon!!

And now, without further ado...  I give you Kari from PurpleFuntastick Creations!!
Hello Friends!!

For those of you of who don't know me name is Kari Sanchez and I am a single mom of two wonderful boys who are smart and talented. My oldest Steven is in college (Marketing Mgr) and works too and Josh is my last and he is a Senior in High School (sniffles) but a jock at heart and a football player at heart and we love to watch football!! :) I am a full-time mom and student studying Pastoral. I have been crafting for over many many years and I love it is a great de-stressor for me and I love to do all kinds of things but cardmaking is dear to my heart but I love making LOs, tags and altered art. I also make jewelry and other kinds of stuff to give as gifts. I love helping people and showing my passion.I am big showing that I am a believer in Lord Jesus who is my Savior. I also love to cook and do things with my friends.

Well enough of me! Let's get to my project...I made a Fall Tag and my original design. Hope you like it! :)

I use the sizzix to make this tag, I inked it with my brown stamp pad that I had punched the one inch circle and inked that as well with my brown stamp pad, then I used a Rub-on pumpkin from my scraps that I had left over (really need to go shopping...(giggles) and then popped dot it but before I could do that I use the leaves I buy every year for fall...and glitter them up with my gold stickles...then I glued them to the tag and put the small circle on them and then I Stamped Ocotober and cut it out and paste it to brown cardstock and cut that out to match and then taped it to my tag. Then I put on some self adhesive gems color yellow (one of my fave embellishments) then put on some ribbon that I had and I also used a rope ribbon and voila! :)

Hope this inspires you and I am thinking of making a tag book with all the seasons and I will have to show that later when I get em' all done so make sure you stop back to check it out! and I will be posting more in the next few days although blogger is being mean to I am determined!! :)

In His Love,
Be Inspired,
AWESOME, Kari!!  It is such a blessing to have you as a friend...  Thank you so much for helping me out this week!!  So now that you've experienced just a little taste of Kari here, it would mean SO much to me if you would pop over to her blog (click here) and show her some bloggie-love -- Become a follower (if you're not already) and leave a comment!!  I'll be sending a RAK to one person who does (so be sure to tell her that you're stopping over after you saw her here, so I know who to draw from!!)...  And if you would like to be considered for a future Guest Designer spot, please leave a link to your blog in the comments on this post so I can come visit you too!! :)
