~ Tag, You’re It! ~

Hello ya’ll 🙂


On Friday, it was 85 degrees here in lovely Northern Colorado.   Yesterday we barely made it out of the 40s.   Today it’s 90 degrees.   That’s a 85 degree temperature swing in 48 hours.   That’s crazy!!


Want to know what’s more crazy?   As of this writing, it is only 96 days until Christmas.   I’m never ready, but it seems like it’s coming quicker this year.


As I scoured the Technique Lovers Challenge for ideas, I found out that surprisingly, we’ve never done tags.   Tags are great.   You can put them on gifts.  Put them on cards.   Make them into tag books.  Decorate with them.   The possibilities are endless.


My first tag is also an entry into this week’s There She Goes weekly challenge (Mix ‘n’ Match).   I used both Penguin Love and HSH

Holiday Additions.




My second is a special treat.   The images come from the new Hauntingly Delightful set coming from There She Goes this month.  It will be released after our Release Party Chat on Saturday evening, September 25th.   If you come back Tuesday thru Thursday this week, you will see more sneak peeks from the Trendsetters!



 I didn’t have any googlie eyes (as if!), so I used glossy glaze and black 1/2 pearls on Drac and the bat 🙂

Here are my deets:


Stamps:   There She Goes’ Penguin Love, HSH Holiday Additions (Christmas tag); There She Goes’ Hauntingly Delightful (Halloween Tag)


Colors:  GP White, PTI Enchanted Evening, GP White, Paper Studio dp (Christmas Tag); Basic Black, Green Galore, Lovely Lilac, GP White, October Afternoon dps (Halloween tag)


Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, copics, versamark (Christmas); Versafine Black Onyx, copics (Halloween)


Accessories: Label 10 Nesties, assorted ribbons, white embossing powder, large hole punch, small circle punch, dimensionals, scor tape, 1/2 pearls (Christmas tag); Label 13 nesties, assorted ribbons, drippy goo punch, circle punches, oval punch, black 1/2 pearls, glossy glaze, dimensionals, scor tape.






Thanks for stopping by!   I hope you will pop over to the challenge forums on and join in our challenge!


Hope to see you back soon!
