Using Graphic 45 Papers for Tags & BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY !!

Here are a few samples of some tags  I recently made using the lovely Graphic 45 papers, some are from the new collections of "Little Darlins" and "Travelogue" ....also I used the older collection of "Domestic Goddess" for the red/black Mother's Day tags ~ I will have more soon.... The Easter basket and bunny tag was crafted on a tag that I first covered in unbleached linen and then pulled the threads for fringe ...then I made the basket from quilling strips.

In the meantime, I feel like offering some "BLOG CANDY" !! 

To qualify for this Blog Candy, you must:
1) be a registered member on my Blog and leave a comment on this post.
2)and also you have to visit my Etsy Store and either make a purchase and/or place my store into your "Favorite Store" or choose a "Favorite Item to Watch"  ...

All eligible entries will be placed in a random drawing to be done on Easter Sunday morning - April 8th 2012.

The prize will be your choice of any a Cricut " Freshly Picked" cartridge or a "Three Birds on Parade" cartridge !!
