Tag! You're It!

Tag was always so much fun to play as a kid.  It is just as much fun to play as an long as it is the crafting kind.  I am fairly certain I could not run to goal if I tried!  Our challenge this week is to use or create a tag in your project.

I used Kitty Cat Cuddles and of course colored it with Copics.  I decided to make the card tag shaped.  Rather than pull out the Cricut, I just marked off the corners at a 45 degree angle using an acrylic quilting ruler.  I just don't have a place to set the Expression up right now!  I have had these stray metal tags rolling around in my stash for ages.  They are pretty small so it is hard to find a sentiment that fits.  I stamped the letter on a punched circle and embossed with silver embossing powder.  I used all of them!  Woohoo!  One more thing cleaned out of the stash.  The twine at the bottom of the card is actually the strings from the tags.  I just knotted them, staggered the knots and cut off the tails.

I can't wait to see what projects you come up with now that you are "it"!
