Tag, you're it

Good morning!
I hope everyone is doing well today, getting back into the swing of things after a (possibly) long weekend. :)
I'm dragging just a bit and have got to get ready for work so I'm gonna keep this one short and sweet.

The challenge over at Quixotic this past week has been to use tags on a card, which was quite serendipitous considering I've had these Basic Grey tags kickin' around my desk since the last time I straightened things up. So it felt really good finally putting them to use. :)
This little Ian is actually a combination of Cute Troop Ian (his head) and Dress Me Ian's body. Can I just say once again how much I love the Dress Me set for making simple, generic, non-themed Anyas and Ians... especially when you can throw so many different heads on them. I'm still hoping that Marie makes a fall/winter clothes set for them someday... heck, any new clothes would be fun to see. hint, hint, wink, wink! ;)

Ok, ending on a pleading note is always fun so I'll wrap things up for today.

Check ya later dudes! :) Supply list:
cardstock- Cardstock Warehouse, PTI
tags- Basic Grey (Oh Baby boy)
stamps- The Greeting Farm (Dress Me Ian, Cute Troop Ian), Inkadinkado (kid quotes sentiment), Tim Holtz (distressed background)
