I have a promise to you. Whenever I link to somebody else's blog, I always link to the direct post unless it's something that doesn't have a post. I make sure that all links open in a new tab/window. I strive to write my tuts easy to read and follow. I always include a screenshot when I feel the tut calls for it. However, I admit that I am not perfect, if I miss something, please let me know so I can fix it. Thank you.

The two CDO yahoo groups that I am both do a lucky tag draw. You can win free tubes. These are my two entries, one for each group.

This one is from a tut I've been wanting to do for a long time. Finally got a chance. It's from Graphics Funhouse. You can find it here. And for some reason the animation won't work unless I show the image full size. So to see what it looks like, just click on the tag. I've fixed it so it'll open in a new tab/window so you won't leave this page.

This is one of  Vix's tuts. I like the "old school" feel of it. Scraps are great but sometimes it's nice to revert to the old ways.  Again animation doesn't seem to be working right. I wonder if this is an issue with Blogger cause I never had a problem until the last day or so. Would be curious to know if anybody else is having similar issues.

Challenge 1 this week, we had to use this tut by Just Fi and/or just this template. This one has so many possibilities and it's been so cool seeing all the different tags people are making in the group.

Challenge 2 we had to use 3 shapes, 2 filters and a mask. I found this tut on Vix's site and OMG it's a hard one. I applaud anybody who can do this thing from start to finish cause it was a challenge all in itself. LOL

Challenge 1 last week was to create a tag had a ribbon, a flower, sparkles and the color pink and had to represent 1 of the 4 seasons. So here's mine. I forgot about the seasons part but I think Summer fits, I mean daisies are a Summer flower right? LOL  So this one from a tut by Vix, she has awesome tuts. You can find it here.

Challenge 2 was to do any tag we wanted. A friend had posted a link to a tut recently and had trouble with the animation so I decided to try it myself. It's also one of Vix's tuts. You can find it here. I had the same problem with the animation she did. No matter what I did, it would not look like Vix's tag. So I made some adjustments and I really like how mine looks. Though I'm not sure if the animation is showing properly. Blogspot is being finicky tonight.

This next one is by my friend Bobbie at Rebelle Doll Designs. You can find it here. It does use a PTU kit but it was on sale when I bought it.

And finally the forum set below is by Tracy at Freebie Friends. You can find it here.

I've made several new tags lately. This first one above was from a tut by Sharon at Tagalicious Tags and Tuts. You can find it here.

This next one is from a tut by Carol at Hugahav's Haven. You can find it here.

This last one is from a tut by Tori at Tori's Titbits Tutorials. You can find it here.

For our 1st challenge last week we had to make a black, grey and white tag with a pop of color. I had a hard time coming up with ideas on my own and so I found this tut by Zuzz.

For the 2nd challenge, we had to use this Wonderland inspired kit by Urban Fairytales. We also had to use a specific font called Wonderland Wine from Jellyka. It's an ok font but I didn't much care for it with this tag so after the initial tag, I used a font called ValentinaJF instead.

And then for the contest tag for the month of July we had to make a black and red tag. I found this awesome kit on SATC.
