bow-dacious (Little Red Wagon, Crate Paper, SSSS)

"Bow-dacious", how clever is that?  That's the challenge over at Little Red Wagon.  These tags of mine got pretty bow-dacious, don't ya think?  Close up below.

This was actually a spontaneous project thanks to these 40 or so gourds which were growing in my weed vegetable garden.  Spent Saturday out cleaning up the garden and harvesting these lovelies.

What to do with so many?  Give 'em to neighbors.  Hmmm, means a project.  Which I really didn't have the time for, but oh well.

Cleaned up the gourds.  Found hoarded containers to dress up a teensy bit with recycled packing paper and napkins.  Had to make some sort of tag and when I saw these pincushions from Melissa P. I had my design.  Found the color challenge for Crate Paper (and I used the Prudence collection) and voila.

A close up for you.

Also hooking up over at Simon Says Stamp and Show - inspired by Wendy Vecchi - cuz I built these houses out of various little fun parts.  A bit Wendy-ish.

Thanks for coming by.  Hope autumn is beautiful in your neck of the woods.
