This Week's Tag Challenge

My tag for this week makes me feel like Spring is soon coming!  I made the Violets with the punches shown below.  Talk about fun! 

After stamping and embossing the JustRite Sentiment, I ran it through the Zutter Distrezzer.  I love that look and I am seeing more and more of it all the time.

Tag Challenge #8

You have until Sunday, March 6, 9:00 PM to enter the Tag Challenge. Anything goes. You can make whatever kind of tag you want to make, any color, use any stamp...your own thing. Then once the time ends to enter a tag, the voting will start and will last until Tuesday morning March 8, 6:00 AM.

This is simply a fun thing and something to help you have tags for your gifts or even a tag to send to a friend.  I know, I am sure enjoying it!!! I love making tags!

The weekly winner, (the tag with the most votes) will be sent an award badge to post on their blog which will show them as a winner. In June there will be a drawing for a grand prize that will be awarded to one of the weekly winners. Won't it be nice to have a head start on all those tags needed throughout the year! I'm looking forward to seeing all your creations. If you need help in posting your tag, please contact me by email or calling 574 656 3663.
