Tag You're it! Sam's August Tag swap

Who needs an excuse to use new stamps?? Well Sam's Tag swap was excuse enough for me. The challenge is to use Burnt orange, olive green and antique white on our projects and of course being for a swap we had to make 3. Whilst away on the retreat I had the chance to visit the shop Running with scissors in Grimsby - a lovely shop which is a hive of crafting activity - where customers were stopping by for a chat as much as to come shopping. Tracey the owner has a lovely blog here and also runs a craft forum here and I have joined in the monthly atc swaps for a few months now. Anyway back to the tags thats where I bought my first 2 tag stamps. Both by Crafty Individuals and the perfect choice I felt for the tags.

Ive used stampin up card stock and papers, Martha Stewart doily punch, promarkers and ribbons from stash.

This image I stamped from my Pal Bee's stash at Claxby again a crafty Individuals one- the tag behind the first one also has a quote on it but I will leave that a secret for the person receiving my swaps! Added a book ring, some ribbon and a heart charm and there we have the trio.

Hop on over to Tag You're it and see the inspiration from my tagging buddies - I do hope you will join in our Monthly Tag swap too!
