we are family~

Welcome to my Day 3 of Growing in Unity!

Tags, tags, and more tags...isn't this the time of year for tags? 

Well this week's Unity Addict's Challenge is 'tags'!
Go take a look at the Unity blog today for all the details to participate.

And, the current All Things Unity Challenge is 'tags'!
Go take a look at the All Things Unity blog for all the details to participate.

Can you guess what creation I'm sharing today?
Yes, you guessed it... A TAG!

For this project, I used this gorgeous background stamp from
I used the owls and sentiment from the Unity Hodge Podge stamp set
 I ink embossed, ink distressed, paper pieced, cut out, paper punched, popped up, Smooched, and ribboned (is this a word? heehe) on this tag:
Here's a close-up of the embossing and Smooch on the owls' eyes
(oooh, the close-up makes their eyes look creepy...kinda like zombies...eeek!):
So what do you think?
I think I might make more of these and send them to my sisters
who all live in a different State.

remember yesterday that I said someone who comments on yesterday's post
will win 5 random Unity stamps?

That person is...

Hi Jen, your tag is SO gorgeous!! I love the ribbon treatment and the beautiful embossed background. Perfect! I'm sure your sisters would LOVE them.
My one word which describes the joy in my life would be "Stamping!". I think my life would be pretty dull without stamps. Enjoy your day!
