Tag You're It #40 and 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 5

Happy Friday!
It is always good to see the end of the week.

Happy today because my hubby is coming home. Maybe he will be able to paint my craft room. The renovations are being put on hold for a bit because he needs to be home for a longer stretch to do the construction. Sealing up the ensuite and opening it up to the hall for a powder room which is going to be remodel, remove the stucco popcorn ceiling and install pot lights and then repaint the room again.

However, you didn't come by today to here about my paint job.
We have a new challenge starting over a Tag You're It!
Challenge #40 is based on this cute tag by Jen Mitchell:




I used the same tag Reverse Confetti tag base as Jen.  I embossed Hero Arts Tiny Flags on the inside panel in white and then sponged some Spun Sugar Distress Ink over part of the embossing. The love sentiment, also Reverse Confetti, was cut using some of the many watercolor panels I have in my recycle bin. They may not have been suitable for a card base but they are perfect for small die cuts. When I created my tag I knew I was also creating it for Day 5 of Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge! I was also inspired by the colours of yummy looking cookies in the inspiration photo over at The Card Concept.
