Week 3 ~ Terrific Tag

Wow! Another great week of entries
We had a busy week viewing all the Easel Cards submitted for week 2 challenge

This is week # 3 and our hostess is June Lanum

June: Hi, I am June Lanum and I am from Lafayette, IN. I am this weeks challenge host and I have decided to do tags, I love tags, they are good to have made up and keep on hand for that quick little thank you or for whatever occasion you might need. You can make a card with a matching tag, just a tag, any size, shape, color for theme, it's also a good way to use up scraps. Now get started and show us what you have. Good luck to everyone

Debbie : I {heart} everything paper and glue! I was introduced to paper crafting approximately 5 years ago at a workshop a friend was hosting and immediately fell in love! I've dabbled with paper crafting for nearly 20 years - I used to scrap when my children were younger. I'm a SAHM to two teen-aged sons and married to my best friend for the past 23 years! Whenever I have a free minute, you'll find me in my craft room designing! I currently have the honor of being a Design Team Member for The Shabby Tea Room and Picture Perfect Creations!
