tags...a new idea

I think the only time that I have done tags is last year to put on christmas gifts. Don't be shocked. I only got my cricut last september. I plan on doing tags again for Christmas but other than that, I have no idea what to do tags for. For this week image (only if you participated last week) from Designed2delight was a couple of tags. I thought that they were super cute. I was thinking I could use it as a book mark...So I made one. I looked at what all of you guys do with them and how to decorate them and I tried my best. I'm getting better at my coloring and put myself in this project. You can't critic art right? what do you think?

How I did it:
Designed2delight image
fussy cutting
eksuccess markers
crayola colored pencils
stapled ribbon to tag

hope butterfly

I stepped out side of my crafting comfort zone this week as I made a Designed2delight card. I've been looking at a lot of blogs trying to see what the "fashion" is and to gain a better grasp at my style. I really like how this card turned out!

How I did it:
star card: wild card
hot pink layer: 5 1/2 x 4 3/4
pink polka dot: 5 1/4 x 4 1/2
the inner star is the cut out from the white layer from the front.
ek success markers
inking and dashlines

What do you think?
