I've been tagged by some blogging friends a few times and I am suppose to tell 7 things about myself and also share some blogs that I enjoy reading. I'll tell you about those in a minute. First, in honor of being "tagged" I decided to stick with the theme and share with you a card that I made using a tag!

This card is made using the new Spring Fling Stamp from TAC called "Happy Bug Day". I LOVE this stamp set. It is so cute! You can see all of the images in this set by viewing the slide show at the top of my blog. This is a set that could be used for kids or adults.

On this particular card, I used my coluzzle to cut out the large circle and then trimmed the side to make it line up with the edge of the card. The tag is chipboard that was cut using the Big Shot Die Cutting machine (available through The Angel Company) and the tag die that comes with the machine. I colored the lady bug with Tombow Markers and stamped and then used the Landscape & Jardin Moss Palette Ink to color the grass. The tag is adhered to the card using pop dots. The white dots on the red circle are made with the White Souffle Pen. To make the strip at the bottom, I punched out nine 1/2" circles and then adhered them to the back of the red cardstock strip using Red-lined wonder tape. For more information on how to create the scallop look, refer to my previous post.

Ok, so now on to the tagging. First, I am suppose to tell 7 things about myself. So, here it goes...

1. I used to be on a drama team in college. We traveled all over during Spring Break and also performed in churches during the school year. I was the lead part in 2 plays and played supporting roles in 2 others as well as performed in numerous skits.

2. I've been scrapbooking since I was in Junior High school and stamping on and off since high school.

3. I was the salutatorian of my high school class and gave a speech at graduation.

4. I am a demonstrator for The Angel Company and used to sell Usborne Books.

5. I am currently a stay-at-home mom but previously worked at the Corporate Office of Bott Radio Network and KCCV Radio in Overland Park, KS (Kansas City). I am also very active in our church.

6. I've attended Ponca Bible Camp in Ponca, Arkansas every year since I was seven (except for a handful) as either a camper or counselor or staff member of some sort. I love this kind of camping but I hate to camp outdoors in tents!

7. I have a 4 1/2 year old son Mason who is a lot of fun and very, very active!! I would like to have another child eventually.

Ok, so I tried to find some things that maybe weren't all common knowledge. Sorry to bore you !

I was also tagged to share 5 blogs that I enjoy reading. I am going to try to mention blogs that I haven't seen listed yet. I love to check out these blogs for inspiration!

I loved learning more about you!
PS. I neglected to mention that I also loved watching Remington Steele and The Scarecrow $ Mrs. King, neither of which are in least not in my area....
