      I hope you are all fit and healthy. Today over at INCY WINCY DESIGNS  we have a  new challenge....                                              
  
Tag It

This means we want to see tags somewhere on your creations or of course you can simply make the tag your creation.

For my tags I decided to use a sentiment from our sponsor.....

You can be as creative as you like and most importantly .... have fun.

I trust you are all well. Today over at CRAFT challenge we are asking you to make your own flowers.
Now I love flowers on my cards but don't usually make my own so this was a challenge for me and something I need to practice!

Here is my card 

I made the background paper using a stamp from one of our sponsors AiFactory

The main image is from another of our sponsors  Floppy Latte 

Our third sponsor is  Crimson Cloud 
The flowers were made using a Marianne Creatables die and rolling.
The sentiment was made on my computer.




I am entering this into the following challenges:
Squigglefly - homemade flowers.
Cutecard Thursday - Anything goes

The beautiful image is called Ponder a Moment.
The papers are from Raspberry Road - appropriately called Family Matters
The ribbon is from our local craft shop
The flowers are from Wild Orchids.
I coloured the image with Promarkers.

The song is Sweet Potato Pie by James Taylor and Ray Charles


The image is coloured with Promarkers.
The papers are from the Nitwit collection - Finncy's Garden.
The shapes were cut with Go Kreate XXL dies.
