Happy Easter! and Tag Tuesday

Happy Easter!  I wanted to get my little Tag Tuesday entry in for the weekend - you can check out the latest tag challenge at Blog Challenge Garden.  I almost scrapped the base of this tag; the colors didn't come out at all as I expected.  But after I walked away from it and hunted down the right vintage image, I made peace with it.  The base is a resist chipboard (I think from Heidi Swapp) that I've been hoarding for ages.  I cut out the egg shape and colored it first with mists (which was too pale), then with some distress inks.  The bunny image is from Dover.  The little egg is from an image transfer to muslin that didn't come out quite right, but I couldn't bear to part with the bits that were okay. ;)  Stamped sentiment is Papertrey Ink.  Lots of other fun goodies... crinkly ribbon from Bluebird Lane Etsy shop, glittered hydrangea petals, vintage mother of pearl baby buttons, and a little pin that I made.

I want to thank everyone who has been voting for me over at The Handmade Gift Guide!!!  Voting will continue for the next few days, so if you haven't checked it out, you can follow the link.  My project is in my previous post *here*.  Also, a big welcome to my new followers!  I've actually hit 200 sweet followers, which makes me happier than words can express. :)  I hope everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow!

Hi Jean! Jacqueline here. Funny that you commented first on my blog, because I thought, the first who comments gets the tags and then I thought of you and you did!!
You can find my e-mail somewhere on my blog and if you like, please leave your mailing address, so I can post the tags tomorrow. Thanks!
