~~~Going Green~~~

Fooled ya...bet you thought you were going to see a St Patty's Day project...didn't you??  Nope, not yet.....I made this tag for the Tag Challenge at Joan's Gardens.......it was any kind of tag you wanted, Joan made a tag from "trash" as she calls it...its a beauty......all the tags are voted on, the one with the most votes wins a badge for your blog......but that's a hard call, as I have "never met a tag" I didn't like yet!
I made this tag for a friend that will be moving away soon...so sad...sigh.....the base is a HEAVY coffee stain and yep, even baked in the oven....wish you could smell it, it  smells heavenly!!   I have a mini "coffee" album planned and have been saving bits and pieces of things to use, so that is why I have the Folgers Coffee piece...isn't it neat...recycle......and the Coffee tastes better with a friend......well that is stamped on a paint sample card I brought home to see if it matched the stain glass sunflowers on my front door...recycle......see the ribbon......my sister sprayed some old vintage seam binding this wonderful coffee color...it came on a gift this year from her for Christmas...recycle.......the satin ribbon tied with it.....also vintage...also recycled......the stamps I used for the cup and the sentiment are from Flourishes...now go make a tag...you know you want to!!
