TYIC #68

Hello friends.  Playing along with the challenge over at Tag You're It where Gayatri Murali is the Featured Artist.  Her adorable tag had me wanting in on the fun too!!

I was totally inspired by Gayatri's cute little pooch, her stenciled background, and of course the big "LOVE" sentiment!  Here's what I came up with:

Our middle daughter celebrated her 26th birthday yesterday, and since her and her husband are total miniature Dachshund lovers (they have 2...Beamer and Royce), I figured this die cut from my dear friend Birgit would be perfect for this challenge and her birthday gift!  I wish I could tell you who the die cut is by, but I'm not sure.  I know Birgit loves to use Elizabeth Craft dies, so maybe.....??  Anyway, I sponged him up for some definition and added his spiffy plaid coat and scarf.  My stenciled background is from Altenew called Halftone Stencil and I started at the bottom with some Pickled Raspberry Distress Ink and went lighter as I moved to the top of the tag.  My "Love" die cut and sentiment are from SSS's Love set.  A little bit of hot pink thick bakers twine finished off my tag.

 There is still time to play, so check out all the fun and oh so cute inspiration from Gayatri and the DT, and then play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
