Pattie's Creations Challenge #39 - Tags

Hi all, yup, I'm back. I know it's been a long time since I was on here last. It's been a pretty eventful few months with moving and then 2 surgeries (one an emergency the other planned...all are well). But I am happy to say that I am back and getting back into my crafting.

To that end, I wanted to show you what I have come up with for Pattie's Creations newest challenge. The theme this time is Tags. Now I was lucky enough to get to play with one of the most adorable's called Puppy Quartet and you can find it here .

I made a tag for inside a fat page. I just love these adorable little puppies. I thought that they would make a wonderful birthday tag...from all of us. I colored the image with my Prisma Colors Pencil crayons and oms.

I used my Provo Craft - Cuttlebug Birthday embossing folder to emboss my tag (using 2 pieces of paper so that I had it on both sides). I then took a lighweight sandpaper and sanded the paper to show the Happy Birthday message better.
Here's a close up of the image....isn't it just too cute? I just love their adorable little faces. I colored them so that the first dog and the third one are boys, and the second and last are girls. The boys have red in their fur that the girls don't (unfortunately I was taking my picture at night and it's hard to see the difference).
 Pattie does just the most wonderful dog images (as well as a whole bunch more incredible images) fact she has a new one in her store that is "bubblicious"! To find out what I mean, you'll have to check out her store.
This is what the fat page looks like when it's all put together.

So what do you have to do to enter this challenge? Well for one thing, you need to make a tag. And your tag must have a digital or stamped image on it. Now you don't have to use a Pattie's Creations image...but we would sure be tickled to see one. And if you don't have one of her image, stop on by the store and check out what she has...and don't forget to check out her Freebie of the Month.

Now I know the next question you want to know is "What can I win?". Well there is 2 winners per challenge. One is a random winner that uses a Pattie's Creations image (and if you use one of Pattie's images you get an extra entry!) and the other is a random winner from entries that do not use one of Pattie's images. Each winner will win 2 images of their choice ($3 maximum per image) from her Etsy Store. Now how can you go wrong with that?

Wow Charlene, this is great! Love the tip about sandpapering the raised embossing, and isn't this just the greatest image of Pattie's.
