It is time for a new challenge over at The Kraft Journal!
Before I share the challenge and my project I want to say 
Thank you ALL so very much for the sweet comments both here and on fb about me joining 
The Kraft Journal! You all made me feel so GREAT!! I am super excited about this and hope you will hop over to TKJ and play along in our challenges!!!
Speaking of challenges....this week's challenge is....
Tag You're it!
we want to see all those fun tags which brings me to my project.....
I made this fun tag ....Hope you like it!!
Isn't this a fun tag??? 
I bought this stamp set~ Java Time from Jaded Blossom especially for this project (since I knew I was joining the team I was thinking ahead...LOL)
So I started out with a mini burlap tag and cut a piece of Brown Kraft Cardstock to the same size to attach to the back of the tag....That way I can still write a message to the recipient. 
I then stamped the adorable image onto another piece of Brown Kraft Cardstock and colored her partly using my copics and some white gel pen.
Using some Red with White Polka Dots washi tape, I washi pieced....Ha a new term... her hair bow and coffee mug. 
How adorable did this turn out!!!
I know I will me washi piecing alot more!!!

Here is a close-up of the sentiment from the same Jaded Blossom set...I just added it to a banner die cut from My Creative Time~ Vintage Stitched Label Die after I distressed the edges with my Ink Blending Tool and some gathered twigs distress ink.

Here is the completed project with the tag attached to the Small Kraft Coffee Bag w/Window using a Hinge Clip.

So what do you think??? I hope you like my project and will check out what the rest of the DT has created HERE.
I would love to see you play along with this challenge as well :)
