A fun game

Hello everyone and welcome to you all!!
Today I am sharing a tag card with you which I made for a fun pay- it- forward game on Facebook recently. This was the text of the original post: 2013 creative pay-it-forward, the first 5 people to like this status will receive a present from me at some point over the next 12 months. It could be a card, a tag or something altered, but definitely crafty. There will likely be no warning and it will happen whenever the mood strikes me. The catch is those 5 people must make the same offer in their Facebook status.
Well, there you have it. The mood struck me today, so here is the first project, created with a #10 size tag, inks, texture fades and stamps mainly from Tim Holtz with one or two others thrown in for good measure. Now the question will be, who of the first 5 commenters will get it???
Inside the tag



this is the back of the tag and below you can see some detail still.


Well, here's hoping that whoever I decide to send this to will like it. Thank you for visiting and a very warm welcome to all my new followers!

  36. Sound like a great idea, that swap with surprise thingie!

    Love your tag very much!!! Great use of the gorgoeus dragonfly stamp (I am not sooo excited about Tim's blueprint series, but seeing your tag using the stamp so beautifully, may change my mind).

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
