{tag} you're it

It's my month for a card challenge over at My Sketch World!  Instead of a straight forward card challenge I thought I'd change things up and do a tag challenge!  My challenge is to make a tag using your favorite thing about spring as a theme.  Spring in Michigan is a mixed bag-snow, sleet, rain and sun.  I endure the rain because April showers really do bring May flowers in my neck of the woods!  :)


I used some older MME Quite Contrary paper with a misted doily and one of those wood veneer flowers I scored from the dollar store.  I finished it off with an SRM Sticker, which is certainly my "go to" item these days.  I also added the yellow french knots to the daisy chain loop, it needed a little something and that little bit of stitching did the trick, as it so often does. 

I have to give a shout out to my youngest DS today, it's his 8th birthday!


Happy Tuesday to you, my friends, hope happiness finds you today!
