TSG146 Challenge-Part Two

I am posting the second and third tags inspired by the There She Goes Monday Challenge, Tag it!
I had planned four tags, using the elements from the set "Perk Up," and posted the first one on Tuesday. I received a lot of very kind comments on that first tag (warmed my heart!) Not that I'm looking for more pats-on-the-back, but I just think these images are too good NOT to share... so here goes.

This tag uses more Close To My Heart "Cherry-Oh" paper. The sentiment is stamped on a "fancy label" Sizzix die by Stephanie Barnard. There is a coordinating stamp set, "stamps4fancylabels," with a variety of frames for the die.

I just LOVE how you can personalize the cups and mugs with the TSG set:
Doesn't this mug look like it had a BAD day...? It is sitting on a ribbon of corrugated paper cut from---a Starbucks insulating sleeve!

Then I had to carefully mask some of the sentiment letters to create the word "help" on the banner at the bottom.
All the cross-stitches and criss-crossing twine are meant to reflect getting mended (or feeling better...).

This tag is supposed to reflect a baker's shop window:  pink awning, signage, and fresh goodies on display on a doily-covered counter.

Each of the baked goods is a separate stamp from the Perk Up! set--aren't they fun?

The doily is a fabulous die from The Scrapping Cottage which my dear crafty sister gave me for my recent birthday. It is quite lovely, with some embossing as well as the detailed design. It made the perfect setting for the treats.

Anyway, I may not get to the fourth tag before Monday, March 12th. But! you are welcome to play along, at  the There She Goes Monday Challenge. Check out the other inspiring stamp sets from this company while you're there!
