Need Hugs?

Hi there!
How is your Monday going today?  I just thought I'd share with you a tag that I made for a new challenge Tag You're It!  I can't even remember the last time that I made a tag.  I should make more for they are so quick and easy!  We were to follow the tag from Laura Bassen for inspiration.  What a lovely tag she made! 
And, here is my tag...
The fun lizard is from the stamp set Paper Smooches.  And, who doesn't need hugs?:-)  I started with a cream card base and used distress inks.  I then added black ink while using a honeycomb stencil.  The lizard and sentiment were embossed and colored with an orange copic marker.  Dots ribbon and twine to finish off the tag.
Well, that's all for now.  I have the oven preheating to make some cookies to take into work tomorrow.  I've been on vacation for two weeks and today is my last vacation day...sighhhh!:-)  Thanks so much for dropping by!  Have a great day!
