Dad Tags!

Hey y'all! This week I am so honored to be a Guest Designer over at Digistamps 4 Joy!  The challenge this week is: TAG it for DAD.  With Father's Day coming up, what better time to show the special men in your life how important they are with a little tag handmade especially for them?

The important men in my life all think they can grill.  (Then again, doesn't every man think he can grill?)  Luckily, a couple of them are even right!  Nothing says "summer" to me like sitting in the back yard, grilling up some steak or some corn on the cob.  

When I saw this Digistamps 4 Joy image named BBQ, I just knew it was perfect.    I paper-pieced the shorts with some denim paper, colored the rest of the image with Copics and a Glaze pen for the grill.  The sentiment I printed using Word and a font I found online named "Flames".  The tongs and spatula embellishments are from Recollections.

So, now that you've seen my tag, head on over to the Digistamps 4 Joy blog to check out the inspiration from their amazing DT! Keep in mind you do not have to use a Digistamps 4 Joy image to be the random-picked winner....BUT if you DO use a Digistamps 4 Joy image you have an additional chance to win: the DT's Choice Award (which awards a $6 gift voucher to the store)!  If you don't have any Digistamps 4 Joy images, you can find some here...there's even a monthly freebie if you create an account at the store.

Ok, that's it!  I hope to see your fabulous creations in the challenge!

Starla this tag is those little tongs and the flipper. Maybe you can give those to the men that don't know how to grill ;)You colored the image beautifully and great job on the paper piecing!
