What great projects! I especially like your tag card. It's been a while since I've enjoyed tags because most of them are not created in beautiful colors like yours is. I like the images, colors and overall appearance! Maybe I need to make tag cards like that, too! Thanks so much for sharing your ideas.

Jen said...

Gosh, I just love the birthday one! Love the colors! Following now, too!
