A Monogram on a Tag






I believe this is the first time I've ever used a monogram.  The challenge on Tag Tuesday is to create a tag that features a monogram.  Because I don't have chipboard or grungeboard alphas, I created my "V" for 'vintage' on my Cricut....one of the most rarely-used tools in my collection.   Distress inks color the tag, and a little gold Glimmer Mist finishes it off.

I need to come over there and we'll dust off that Cricut and fire it up! I keep thinking it would be handy, but I haven't bothered getting one. Expensive!

I love your tag!
