Is It Spring Yet?

I think everybody is looking toward spring this year with so much cold weather.  I live in SOCAL and I'm looking forward to getting out in the yard and getting things cleaned up, but I know it is WAY too early for that!

My tag was treated with Gesso then spritzed with inks.  I used a stamp image that came free with a magazine, they are called Pettit Prints. I used a Recollections pen on the can and gel pens on the flowers.  The sentiment is from different alphabet stamps I have.  I finger pleated the ribbon down the side and tie the tag with the same matching ribbon.

This is my DT piece for the second week of challenge 77-use some ribbon over at The Cheerful Stamp Pad There is time to link up and play along with the challenge.

See you there

  1. Yes spring can't come soon enough for me, I've had enough of the frigid weather here in Canada. Awesome tag, the colours are so happy and spring like.

  2. Great colors, like the pleated ribbon. Anxious for spring to arrive here in NoCa.


  3. I just noticed a spring bulb with the tip of it poking through the corner this morning! Spring is around the corner, 2 months! Love the tag and that bright springy green! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  4. The pleated ribbon is very nice addition to this tag. Count me in for spring!
