Tag, you're it!

Good morning folks!

Would you believe it if I told you we got more snow yesterday? And supposedly we are due to get more during the drop back down to single digits the rest of this weekend. What happened to spring being right around the corner? Seriously, with only four more days to go til the end of this month the last thing I wanted to see was more snow.
I know... whine, whine, whine and life could most definitely be worse but indulge me. I am SO over winter. ;)

Ok, on to my card for the day and it is for this week's Tickled Pink challenge to use tags. Doesn't matter if you make a tag, use a tag on a card or project, use an image that includes a tag (like Cherrie with tag)... it's totally up to you! I went with including a tag on my card, which was super easy to do because I just took one of the die-cuts from the Good Day Sunshine line and turned it into a quick tag that was already quite decorated. All I had to add was an eyelet and some ribbon to complete the transformation. Then of course I added all the fun stuff, including the ever beautiful Li'l Lylah in her snazzy coat and hat. She is a fave of mine and I just had to pair her with these papers because she totally looks like she is ready for a stroll about town, don'tcha think? :)

If you would like a shot at winning three Tickled Pink digis of your choice then all you have to do is pull out any of the TP range of stamps (these include Lil Lolitas and Lads, Pink Pets and Cherries)and make a tag this week! Then just link up your creation on the TP challenge blog and you're set! :)

Oh and did you see this... When you spend $50 or more at Tickled Pink Stamps you get free shipping! Even better yet, this applies WORLDWIDE... making it easier for all you rubber lovers to get inky with it!

Oh Amy, this is so cute! I love this paper with her. Really really adorable. We had a snow storm yesterday for about an hour. It was so windy that the snow was blowing sideways. I was worried about the kids waiting for the bus to go home that my Dad picked them up. By then it was sunny and you would never know that it had snowed. :O) However we are in the single digits now. OMWord. BTW, I received your stamp in the mail today and I LOVE how big she is. I had printed her soooo much smaller and I am really excited to play with her in this size. Thanks again, Lisa
