I'll bet you never thought these ol' pins could waddle that fast did you? I wasn't planning this post, at least not today, but about an hour ago I came across my note with a challenge I HAD to play in and the time is almost up.
It was very important from me to join in the Tag You're It challenge so I could DJKASE one of my favorite card artists. She is Marybeth Lopez and her delightful blog is Marybeth's Time for Paper. If you aren't familiar with Marybeth, you are in for a treat! She has never made a card or a tag that I haven't fallen in love with!
Marybeth is the featured designer at TYI, and here then, is my attempt to emu late a Marybeth Masterpiece:
Because I used several snippets, including a snippet of ribbon, I am taking my tag over to the Playground at Pixie's Snippets Playground to show my mates.
And the current challenge at The Card Concept is "Thinking of You" with a photo of roses! I hope a tag is okay? That question has not been asked in the FAQs, quite possibly because the natural response would be, "It is called the "card" concept, dearie! Off you go!"
Still, I'm going to be a rebel and see what happens. It never hurts to try.
And, lastly, I am entering a new-to-me challenge called Retro Rubber where the premise is to encourage us to use our older stamps that still need some love! (Actually, I have plenty of NBUS stamps that are over a year old and never been loved at all, she says, ashamed.) For this challenge, Retro Rubber wants us to make a tag or a card with a tag. My "Rosie Posie" and leaves are over a year old.
If any of these challenges are new to you, please check them out and play along to show your appreciation for the hard work involved in maintaining a challenge!
Marybeth, thank you for your friendship and encouragement and for using my beautiful birthday card as your "Tag You're It" feature photo!! It is a pleasure and an honor to support you in TYI and add you to my DJKASE tab of card artists!

I have one other thing to share with Marybeth and with all of you. You all know how much I love hummingbirds and how we had our resident hummer Hitler for years and how he died and another male attached to our feeder. Well, we've had some interesting developments the last few months which have led to this exciting event:
After I posted this, I realized that in the picture above I captured the little mama at the feeder, so I made another copy with an additional circle on the right (below) where she is barely visible. You can see she has a straight shot to her source of nutrition.
