AnnaBelle Stamps - Say It With............a Tag!

Happy Friday to you all! This week has just flown by for me, it's been a very busy one too. I had yet another CT scan on Tuesday, and I think I must have picked up a bug while at the hospital as I had some sort of nasty virus on Wednesday and Thursday. Hopefully I'll have a better weekend, then it's back to see my Oncologist on Monday to get the results of my scan, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they haven't found any new cancer.

Anyway, enough about me and onto my card! This week's Friday challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps is 'Say it with.....a Tag!'

All of my stamps are from the ABS 'All Things Grow' set. For my backgrounds I've sponged on some Distress Inks and then stamped over them. My tag is cut using a Cuttlebug Tiny Tags die. I've used this week's sketch 182 from Mojo Monday for my layout.

Supplies used:
AnnaBelle Stamps products: 'All Things Grow' stamps, green and white striped ribbon.
Basic Grey Blush patterned paper.
Stampin' Up 'Not quite Navy' cardstock.
Tim Holtz Distress Inks - various colours.
Versafine Black Onyx ink.
Nestabilities - Circle and Blossom dies.
Other - button, green paper cord.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to Andrea for the opportunity to be a guest designer on the AnnaBelle Stamps blog for this month, today's post is my last one. Thanks also to the ABS design team for all your support too! I've thoroughly enjoyed the last month, especially being a part of the new release stamps!
