Tag You're It #85

Happy Easter!

Whatever you are doing this weekend I hope that you are spending it with your family and that spring has finally found you. I just got home yesterday from my vacation and even though it has really warmed up where I live it still feels a bit chilly compared to the warmth of Turks & Caicos-lol! 

Feeling recharged, I created a tag for challenge #85 over at Tag You're It!

Rainbow of Easter Eggs

I am up on the A Jillian Vance Design blog today with a colourful parade of Easter eggs that I created with the Cracked Egg die from A Jillian Vance Design. I created the rainbow of colours using Distress Oxide Inks--Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers. The silly little bunny is peaking out again from behind the eggs.

I hope you head over to A Jillian Vance Design to see what I used to create my card.
Happy a hoppy day!

I am up on the A Jillian Vance Design blog today with a birthday card using the Cute Cactus and Petite Cactus Pair dies. I can`t get enough of set these fun dies. You can cut them from coloured cardstock like I did this week or you can cut them from white cardstock and add colour yourself using one of the many mediums available today!

Tag You're It #84 and MFTWSC431

Happy Friday!

There is still time to play along with http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.com/!
You Have until 9:00 am EST April 10th to link up your tags!




Tag You're It designer and resident coffee guru Erin Thiem chose the Theme for this challenge and she actually staged and took the photo!!

I used MFT Stamps Coffee Date and Coffee Break stamps.  This is such  a fun set because you can stamp the outlines and stamp the fill images in any colour you like. You can line them up perfectly or you can  artfully misalign them! I used the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch #431.

When you add a tag at Tag You`re It you can create a card, just as long as it has a tag on it somewhere, big or small!
