Happy Arbor Day!

Hello Everybody!

April 27th is National Arbor Day here in the US.  To celebrate I made this tag.  I was going to wait until the morning to post it, but I just can't wait!

I am entering this tag into the following challenges:

Scrapbooker Anonymous: Brads-use at least 15.  This is the last month that they will be sponsoring challenges :(  I am bummed about that because they make some great challenges to use our stuff!  But best of luck as I am sure they are off to do exciting things!

For Fun Challenges: Bunny-No Easter.  To use a bunny but not in an Easter type setting...check :)

Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes! Yay!


First I used Tim Holt's Distress Ink to color my tag.


I got out the brads! (I want my sister to see that I use the magnetic organizer that she got me for Christmas, too) :)


This is a close up of the sunshine clothespin on the tag.


Here's the back of the tag.  I thought that looked kind of cool in its own right.


Here's a close up of the tree tag.  I'm not particularly fond of my grass sketch there, but other than that I think it came out pretty good.  There's my bunny just chillin' by the tree.  The bunny is from Me and My Big Ideas.


Here's my tag again.  Until next time my friends...plant a tree.  Happy Arbor Day!

I like how you spelled tree in the trunk. I love the brads for the tree and I say I'm going to do something like this but when I get them out I can't part with that many at once!! What happen if I NEED them!! :)

Thanks for being a great GDT member earlier this month. Thanks for playing with us!
