Tags are such a fun way to share a bit of our creativity.  Here are a few tags I have made this past week.

First is my Irish fairy.  I sent her to a good friend and how perfect that she arrived today - 
St. Patrick's Day!

Here is my Spring Flowers tag for the Bring on Spring Flowers swap on Addicted to Paper Dolls.

and a close-up of the fun felt flowers with 
a sparkly bead center-

And for Carol's Extra Tag Swap Disney over at Paper Doll Trading I created this-

I dressed my doll just like Minnie Mouse and used some fun Disney papers and embellishments.

And finally-
 for the Star Doll - Use Your Mixed Media challenge over at Paper Doll Trading I created this-

I used a back ground of 3 different colors of modeling paste that was covered with a thin coat of a sparkly Stickles and a wash of watered down white acrylic paint.

I added this cute little felt and chipboard saying 

and some fun feathers and a flair button that says 'Happy'

I hope that you have enjoyed my latest paper doll creations! I'd love to hear what you think so oplease do leave a comment!

This is going to be a quick share as I just discovered that the challenge will be over in 3 hours and I will be on my way to Bible Study before that.  I created this card to cheer up the mother of a friend from one of my groups who has been having some struggles.

The card was created using this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #226.

and the message inside - 

I hope that this will bring her a bit of cheer and that you have enjoyed viewing my creation!

I spent a lot of this weekend coloring!  I have always loved coloring since I was a young child. I just discovered Scrapbook Generation Facebook Group with their Lucky Me Online weekend crop and joined in on a batch of ther challenges...mostly the coloring ones...

The Four Leaf Clover 
Coloring Challenge 
According to legend, ther four leaves of the clover represent faith, hope, luck and love. The goal was to choose a coloring page that represented one of these and color it your choice. I chose this to represent love bevcause of all the tiny hearts!

The Rainbow Coloring Challenge
Color a page of any design using one shade of each of the seven rainbow, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

The Lucky Ombre Coloring Challenge
Color a mandela using only one color using as many shades of that one color as you wish, coloring it in ombre fashion using darker in the center and lighter on the edge.

The Lucky Number 7 
Coloring Challenge
A rainbow has 7 colors and rainbows and the number 7 are borth considered lucky.  Color a page with exactly 7 colors.

The Don't Pinch Me Coloring Challenge
Color a page using 5 shades of green plus one accent color.

The All I Want To Do Is Color
Color a page using any theme or color.

The Lucky Pick Layout Challenge
They gave you several color combos and were told to jot them down on paper and scramble them up and select one.  I selected Black and Gold.  I couldn't find my gold paper so I decided to create a gold and black design of my own.

And last I am going to share the card 
I made for this months 
Card Challenge.
