My husband suggested that it would look nice to make the Petal Cone Die piece from a "chocolate" color, that it would probably show up better, and I agree with his suggestion!

Terrific Tag for April!

Okay, so I have failed at blogging for a while.  Life kind of derailed my plans to keep current, but here I am back again with my Terrific Tag for April (yes, I know it is May--I haven't made a card for May, yet!).

I was invited to be a vendor at a crop sponsored by a Girl Scout troop to raise money to go to Savannah, and needed a couple of Make and Takes; when I think of something fast to create, my mind always rushes to tags.  So I thought I would do something that would take care of two things, my Make and Take and my Terrific Tag for April.

Here is the tag I created:
