Hello Tag...Tag You're It: Mini Challenge, Poppy Sketches #7

Hello...

A new challenge has totally caught my eye, and I know it will yours, too!  It's called Tag, You're It (fabulous name!!).  Hostessed by the amazing Jackie Rockwell (she has two new ones for us, actually), along with an A-Team group of designers, and...*fist pump* featuring TAGS (cas style), it's guaranteed to be a hit in our crafting community!! I love tags!  Remember those 90+ I made for my sister-in-law at Christmas?  Well, I'm recuperated *grin* and I am so. into. this. challenge!!  

Challenge 1 is a mini challenge, inviting us to draw inspiration from this darling tag created by guest designer Karin:


Summer delight and absolutely a-dor-a-ble!  My tag is also inspired by The Poppy Sketches #7, and especially Renee's sample

Ready? Here's my little tag, featuring my dot fade stencil once again, along with a sponged butterfly and sentiment strip. Distress Inks out to play this roung...


Thank so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!!

Well now this sounds like a fun, new challenge site! I am going to have to write down some of these challenge and maybe one day when I have my act together and am alone because of a certain teen leaving for college, I can play along! lol I love, love your tag Carol!! The dot stencil fade is amazing, love how you did the sentiment tag with the distress inks-really need to play more with mine instead of just inking with them and of course I love the butterfly. You are just awesome my friend, so creative and talented!!! Hugs, Brenda
