Tag You're It Challenge #15

Happy Friday!
It's time for new inspiration at Tag You're It!

This challenge Donna Mikasa is our inspiration with a card!
You are going to translate the inspiration into a tag...




When I created my tag I was so inspired by Donna's use of colour and water. I created a background on my tag using Distress Inks and a small pattern. Using a paintbrush I picked up some water a kind of squished the water into the centres of each flower, dipping my brush again each flower. I like the way it turned out. I die cut my word and added Glossy Accents.

We hope that this challenge really inspires you to create a mini masterpiece.
Don't forget that the winner will be invited to guest with the team for the next challenge!


Today I am picking up my new wheels and we are off to Florida.

Some of you may recall my post on the Coffee Loving Papercrafers Facebook page from the car dealership last week. Well it was bad, very very bad--timing chain. My Enclave was 7 years old and had 208 000 km (130 000 miles) on it and in the last 6 months has been digging deeper and deeper into my wallet! So Thursday night I signed the papers and we are picking up my new car today and leaving for Florida. The great deal I got on the house we are renting got a wee bit more expensive.  Excited for a road trip!

I have scheduled posts for the next couple of weeks, but along with a much needed holiday I am taking a bit of a blogging break. I am hoping to find my rhythm again and when I return I will be refreshed and ready to jump back in.

Happy Valentines Day!
