Tag you're it...

I am visiting my daughter in CO currently and i thought i'd try to do my favorite thing (paper crafts) with limited supplies.  What started my juices flowing was a challenge at My Besties Aussie..i've made a couple of projects/cards for them and when i have some extra time, i like to make something for them and combine their challenge with others on Paper Playful (the source of all challenge things).

Here is my tag using My Besties IMG 911 and i might add i got some inspiration from a tag on Pinterest.
So i have to share how i made this because i don't have as much crafting supplies at my daughters and she is so neat/tidy and able to get so many things in a small space that it is hard for me to find things without going through every box.  So i hand cut the heart (no die cutting machine), then i found a "border" punch i bought for her to make those rolled flowers and cut the tops off of them to get this border around the heart.  I had also purchased the MS butterfly punches for her..and found the ribbon in her stash to match.  The roses i did just pick up at Michaels $1 bin and the mushroom pics were in the flower decorating/ribbon section.  I bought the hemp, but found out later digging through one container that she already had some.  The flowers were ones that came in those "mini" milk bottles..she had in her stash.   So, yes, she does have a few copics, but i've purchased more for her in the last couple of years so that i wouldn't have to bring them on the plane.. (we are so limited on the plane now)

Also, the true story about the Copics?  Well, when Archievers first had one of their classes, i asked my daughter if she wanted to go..and she said, oh i have several of those because of the Art Classes she had been taking at College..and no longer used.  She said i could have them cause she didn't use them..ha, ha..now she does use them when she has time to color...however, now she has a new batch...and hers are mixed into my stash..and i wouldn't even know which ones were hers any more anyway.

Copics used:
skin- YR000, 00, E02
eyes- B02
hair- E31, 33, 34, 37
hearts/mushroom- R35, 37, 39
