Joan's Gardens Tag Challenge

Happy Saturday, dear blogging friends! Today I would like to share with you a tag I whipped up for Joan's Gardens Tag Challenge, this week. This is my very first time joining in on the fun! I have seen some gorgeous creations on this challenge!I used a #13 Manila tag and painted it with white acrylic paint. I tore and layered some K&Co paper and many leaf punches, topping it off with a handmade flower. I added a bird punch from SU! After using Vintage Photo Distress Ink on my edges, I shabbied it up with some Gina K. Design stamps, and topped it off with a birthday sentiment. My hanger is pale blue organza.

Well now, that was fun. I would like to thank everyone who left me a beautiful comment yesterday on my swan card! You rock!


I am also entering this in the Create with Bubbe Birthday Challenge.


For those who have been saying prayers for my Niece, she could not hold out any longer and delivered by C-Section on Thursday morning. The baby is 2 pounds 10 ounces and has already been taken off oxygen, so he is a fighter! His name is Flynn Patrick (Patrick after my niece's mother, Pat, who passed away 3 weeks ago). Flynn is almost 32 weeks. Please continue to include them in your prayers. Thanks!

Oh Mary Anne, how pretty! Love the little birdie. Flynn sure is a little fighter, and with the love and support he needs, I am sure he will be able to go home with his Mommy soon,
and they can enjoy the little one as they should be able to!

Your tag is so pretty with that great flower and pretty bird! I'm so glad the baby was delivered successfully and he's proving to be a fighter! I LOVE his name too!! It kinda has a regal feel to it, don't you think?
I hope things continue to improve for your family during these trying times.

I think I did almost the same thing you did, went to a DOTS party in 1992 and was hooked. Then
scrapbooked a lot, but then ended up coming back to stamping and having a ball. Love, love, your tag for Joan's Garden challenge!
