Duck Tag

Good Morning! Whew it feels nice to be blogging again - it's been a few. Blogging means that I'm getting my routine back which always makes one happy! Today is Tuesday so it's time for another CAC sketch card. Today's sketch was actually a tag - we could make a tag or make a tag card. I decided to make a tag - that way when I'm ready to use it I could either put it on a gift or put it on the front of a card.

Here is the sketch (provided by Becky Fleck at Page Maps):

And here is my tag:

I seem to be using this stamp set a lot but I can't help it - it's just so darn cute! This is the duck from the Fresh Spring Things kit along with the pattern paper that comes in the kit. I used Copics to color him. At the bottom I used a rub-on that says thanks a bunch (kind of hard to see). I used a few punches here - circle punch, scallop circle punch and border punch.

Here is a close up of the cute little duck:

Have I mentioned how cute he is??? Thanks so much for looking!

It's not too late to get the Fresh Spring Things kit - it's available until the end of March. Just contact me about ordering!

You did such a great job on this! Oh so cute! I really need to try and challenge myself to make more tags...and use them. It's the one thing I truly struggle with every time I try.
Very nice and I like your coloring!

Oh, how cute did this turn out? I really need to get that Gentle Beginnings paper. I always love how it looks when it's used! Thanks for the info on the paper trimmer. I'll have to look for it the next time I'm at the store.

Such a cute tag, Michelle!
Hope you guys are doing well. We're all fighting a nasty stomach bug, and unfortunately losing.
Hey, are you doing any scrapbooking these days? I'd love to see some of your pages. I miss seeing them.
Take care!
