Woohoo, Friday Featured Fan!

Well, would you look at that!  I'm today's Friday Featured Fan on the Card Positioning Systems sketch blog!  I guess it's no secret that I love a good sketch and CPS regularly has fabulous sketches over there.  You could say I went straight "To The Moon" when I found out I would be featured (tee hee).  I had been looking for a way to use a tag on a card for Verve's August Get Your Diva On challenge and when I saw the CPS sketch, I just knew I had to do them together!  Diva Jackie is hostessing this month and challenged crafters to us a tag or make a set of tags.  So....I did!  The first thing I did for my card was mask the tag with a couple of circle punches and then sponged the edges of the tag with white ink.  Then I stamped on my sentiment and tied on my ribbon and twine, in the fashion of the great Diva Jackie.  Next I did up that cute little bear.  I stamped him, colored him and then borrowed Emery's legs to finish him off.  Finally, I stamped, colored and cut out a couple of stars to balance out my bear.  After a little embossing, matting and adhering, I had a card!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous Friday!
