Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #44

I am so hoping to try something new this week with the sketch. It is called Mister Linky. It is a really cool idea. You can play along as usual but when you come to leave a comment with a link you can just add your link to the box right on the post! You will need to add the direct link, please don't just link to your blog, that frustrates people when they have to look for the particular item they are looking for. I am hoping that we can do this and then at the end of the week before I post the new one I will post all the links at once. The best part of this is that they will ALL be available in one spot if you want to come and check them out any time. I will still be posing my first group of links from the team that has the advance notice. If you have questions please do not hesitate to ask, I really think this will work once we get the hang of it.

So now for the sketch for this week. It is a bit different than my usual sketches. This one stems from a need. I have never really created many fancy tags and especially big ones. So that was the sketch for the week, a big ole tag! You can use any theme and pretty much go wild with the sketch, no really rules as long as it ends up looking like a tag! Here is the sketch.....


And my first ever giant tag. I used 100% scraps for this. I have been doing a bit of rearranging in my studio and you would not ever believe how many scraps I have. I could probably create non stop for a year and not run out. Not to mention all the old scrapbook papers that have been down there for years and years! SICK, really it is SICK! But fun too, lol! Here's my tag....



I used the Party Hearty stamp set, lots of scraps, my nestabilities, designer label punch, 1 inch circle punch, 1 1/4 inch circle punch, brads, white gel pen, paper piercer, mat pack, word window punch. ribbons, jumbo brad, black gel pen and I think that is it!

So don't forget when you create your card for the sketch come on over to this post and add the direct link to your card right here on Mister Linky. It it will automatically add you to the list of player's.
