  1. Hi Gail! How super resourceful of you, and your tag turned out beautifully. Who would have ever known it was made from "garbage cardboard"? Awesome! Thanks for sharing this in our Anything But A Card Challenge.

    By the way, I actually tried a new technique (which you know I almost NEVER do). You can see my card on my blog today. I'm proud of myself for trying something new, and it turned out nicely.

    Have a blessed week!
