... so much for the last butterfly of the year! I did it again - 'cause I couldn't give that cute recycled gift wrap away without a little note, right?!? So in the very last minute, I took out my little file folder that holds all my patterned paper and found a perfectly matching piece of designer paper from Sassafras Lass ... but see for yourself, here's my little tag-y:

However, the clue on here is on the back! I found a cool tutorial in forum from a very talented German scrapper, Jazzica. She explained how to make your own scratch off cards with acrylic paint and I just *had* to give this a try!

Actually, I couldn't stop and made a clean & simple birthday card for my brother with another "scratch message" inside (sorry, I forgot to photograph the inside and "scratched" message so you see the effect).

Hee, it was so much fun to give the tag and card away and see the recipients smiling all the way :-) On another note, Saturday is not only The Day of German Unity but also (my first) World Card Making Day!! If you are (or understand) German it's worth visiting the Dani Peuss Forum for the World Card Making Day online crop - I'll be there :-)

Have great week everybody and thanks for stopping by!
