Double Up

Howdy friends!  Happy Friday to ya - its beautiful today and though I should be out enjoying it I'm inside playing in the Studio - so be it!  It is supposed to pretty this weekend so I figure we will be out in it all weekend long.

For today, I made a tag to share with you.  Now, I L.O.V.E making tags to go on presents but I never think to make a stash of them for when I need a last minute gift.  I mean, I have a stash of cards, but not tags - I think I'm going to change that beginning today!  Why not? 

I'm even doing something else today that I don't usually do either - I'm submitting this tag for 2 challenges!  Gasp!  Papertrey Ink has a Challenge Me Monday tutorial on coloring on colored cardstock, so I tried it with my growing collection of Copics and am happy with the result.  It looks a bit messy, but I like the 'mistake' I made anyway.  Also, The Paper Variety has a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  I chose Make a Tag, Use 2+ Flowers, Use Stamped Image or Sentiment.  Here it is! 

I'm happy with the result overall, and glad I have my first tag to start my stash!!  Thanks for stopping by today - and I hope to see your work at Papertrey Ink or Paper Variety too!!
