H2H Challenge: Tag! You're It!

Since last week was my last H2H Challenge as a DT member, I guess I've gotten a bit lazy!
Smiley from Here it is, already Wednesday and I'm just getting my piece finished.

The challenge this week is to create a piece of artwork that includes a tag. Well, that sounds easy enough, right? My inspiration didn't come until Monday night, however. That's when, after dinner, Engineer looked at all the peaches we've he's been harvesting from our tree and said,

"These aren't going to last very long. We should can them...tonight." To which I replied, "Do you have any idea how long it will take to can 20 lbs of peaches?" And then I believe I made a this Smiley from

But we headed to the store to get the one item we didn't have for canning peaches, plus everything else that somehow found it's way into the cart. We finally got started at 8:oo. Engineer said I didn't have to help him, but I don't think I could have lived with that pleading face.

After assuring the boys we were in fact not making dessert and getting them off to bed, we worked quietly in the kitchen...and surprisingly didn't make too much of a mess!

And even though everything was done and put away by 11:00, I was awake enough to wonder how I could use those jars in my tag challenge somehow.

With nothing on the calendar for today (except that awesome sale going on right now), I gathered my supplies and got to work! First thing I did was pull out my Wishes book. And what do you know, a card with a tag...right on the cover!

I just had to pick my papers and stamp set and I was good to go!

Stamps: CTMH Bowl Of Cherries (exclusive to Cherry-O Workshop On The Go)
Inks: CTMH Chocolate, Sweet Leaf, Indian Corn Blue, Creme Brulee, Taffy, Sorbet
Papers: CTMH Magic Moments Reflections Kit, Perfect Day Reflections Kit

And to answer your question, yes I did all the stitching by hand.

Which is why I took so many pictures of it!
