SDC40: It's Tag Time!

Wanted to send a big Squishy Hug to all of you who posted a Humorous Birthday Card!!! It was really difficult to choose my three favourites, 'cause they all made me smile. Thanks again for Playing! 

So now for my Four Faves..............I KNOW, I know, but I just couldn't pick 3~~~

First up, this Awesome card by Tracy! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the background, purple is my FAVOURITE Colour  and Wizard of Oz is my Fave movie and this just made me think of it and perhaps that the main girl was Dorothy gone bad!!!! hehe....yeah, I have quite the imagination in my old age!!! Love that spider too!

This Ghostly cards neutral colour scheme by Gay really appealed to my senses. I really love those transparent skull heads and of course those pumpkins are some of my favourite stamps! The card just has a ghostly feel to it!

Love Eric.........LOVE LOVE the sentiment and LOVE LOVE LOVE the background on the cool card by Katja

And now for the SHOWSTOPPER!!!!

This card by Sherry totally had me in stitches!!!! Oh my goodness, I laughed so hard I think I might have even peed a little.......yep, that's what happens when you get to be my age! Thank goodness the years have allowed me to take everything with a grain of salt, including laugh lines, stretchy skin, silver hair and occasional bouts of incontinence.........hope I'm not offending anyone.....just stating the facts!!!

Anyhow I absolutely LOVE the Hair on this babe and her TUTU as well! I am Certain that when I turn 50, I will wear a purple tutu!  After all, purple is my favourite colour you know!!!

Thanks again for playing~

It’s “TAGTIME” this week. 

Nellie is our hostess this week and here is what she says about her challenge theme:

I love to work on a tag. For me it feels like it somehow invites you to think and work in another way than when you’re making cards. So I challenge you to make a tag or some project in which you use a tag. Any size, any color as long as there’s at least one tag involved in your artwork. 

I used a real king size tag for this challenge. It’s 8,5 inch long and almost 4,5 inch wide. Kate Crane’s DVD “Right from a blank page” inspired me when making the background of my tag. 

You can use stamps from any company for this challenge. But even better, grab your Stampotique stamps and get stamping!
