Get Well Tag

Hello, Hello, Have you missed me?  
I apologize that my blogging isn't as frequent as it used to be.  Motherhood has changed a lot for me and my free time just isn't what it used to be.  I stamp and blog when I can and hope that you all are still here with me when I do!  

Today I'm showing off my latest creation for the "Use a Tag" Challenge on the DRS Designs Blog.  

At first, I didn't really have a plan as to how I wanted to carry out this challenge. As I looked thru my box of colored images, this Spring Crocus (1066H) image caught my eye.  It was colored with Copic Markers and I masked it and sponged blue ink around it while it was in a Nestie die which helped to enhance the colors.  Then, after matting it and coming up with the layout, all I had to do was come up with a sentiment tag to pair with it.  I thought that the bright colors in this image gave it a cheery feel and thought it would make a great Get Well card. The tag was created using a portion of the "Cured Yet" Greeting (1015E).  I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the words so they fit perfectly on my tag.

I have to admit, I don't know much about Crocus flowers and when I first received this image I thought they were Tulips, hence the way I've colored them.  So, if Crocus flowers don't come in red, I apologize to all of you who are familiar with them, especially to my Master Gardner friends (you know who you are,  *wink*)  Either way, I just love how this colored image turned out and hope you do to!  

If any of you would like to win your choice of 3 stamps from DRS Designs, take a shot and play along with their "Use A Tag" challenge.  It's a great prize up for grabs! Good Luck to you if you do!

Well, that's it for me today.  More coming soon I hope...
