New Year's Tag


Shocking but true, I'm actually getting my Tag Tuesday challenge up on a Tuesday, LOL!  This week, Louise at Kard Krazy challenged us to create a tag about the New Year.  As the year comes to an end, I love to remember all the happy times of the year just past, and think about all of the possibilities of the new year ahead.  I tried to capture this feeling in my tag.  Thanks for looking!

Some sources if you're interested: background and butterflies - Mary Mata collage sheet; stamps - Cornish Heritage Farms, JustRite; decorative tape - K and Co.  I altered the image of the woman from a free vintage photo image at art-e-zine.co.uk.
