I'm loving the
Silhouette & House of 3 art to make my own gift tags...

I grabbed a bunch of these big jars at Ikea & have been cutting out BIG vinyl numbers... *according to how many people in their families...just for fun.* I'm putting them on their jars & plan on filling them with goodies. orange slices. popcorn. cookies. all sorts of yummies.
Ok...we have a little Spark surprise for you....get ready...set....

Thanks for visiting my blog tonight. I am totally swooning over your comment (and Heidi's!)!

I feel like such a nerd, and ya'll are design goddesses! Thank you for making my night!

And, as always, I adore the House of 3 style! :)
