Enjoy and Merry....Tag, You're It Challenge #55, ColourQ Challenge #357, Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Anything Goes


A hearty welcome (from the north of the province this my mom's) to Tag, You're It Challenge #55

where we're inviting you to draw inspiration from the 200% smile-making, oh-so-pretty tag designed by the wonderfully talented Melissa Bickford.  The wee flowers, the double tags, the big smile (wearing one yet again on seeing this charming delight), the pink strip...choices galore to spark your creativity.

Guest Featured Designer 

I brought out my Uniko Vines Mini Addition stamps and went to town with those pretty little images, added a polka-dot second layer and a die cut enjoy, set atop an inked strip....

Did you notice that Melissa strategically set a flower cluster as the tittle for the "i" in smile?  Clever! My "j" received a some tittle attention, too!

Of course, having the set out meant creating a second tag...

Want to see more incredible inspiration? Head over to my fabulous teammate's blogs: a whole lot of ingenuity happening!  We also have an marvelous guest designer joining us: Asha!!


Stage turned over to you.
How will Melissa's tag inspire you?  
See you in the gallery!
