The first one is really cool with the clock on and the blac men and awesome for a mans card, but also the second one is really awesome as it´s in one of my favorit colors green and then it has butterflies on it, which is also a favorit, and it is sooo usefull for really many things, and finally the last one is really awesome in the red colors and useful for a loved one or just to tell a good friend, how much they mean to you, so all of them are perfect in each their way.

  18. Oh I love everything, my favorite tag is the first, love the vintage look and the little findings on it. I have such a hard time with tags for some reason, so I love looking at them for inspiration.

  19. Wow, I love them! Ever since I "discovered" Tim Holtz I've been addicted to tags. My favorite is the green one with the butterflies!

    ReplyDelete
  20. They are all wonderful, but the green one has a slight edge over the others - the butterflies are so cute.

  21. The st Patricks day tag, adore the butterflies! The frame and cards are also quite amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That is quite a tricky question as I like all 3 tags - the first being brilliant for lads, the second because I love green & the last for it's that flower that catches my eye. is it possible to have the first theme in the second colour with the flower on it of the third???? I know it isn't for then the uses would alter --- nice bit of dreaming though.
    I love the catalogue I won the last time you did this, I'm always referring to it.

  24. All of Linda's work is beautiful, but I think my favourite is the green St Patrick's one, and I'm not even Irish, lol.

  25. Of the three tags, I like the pink one the best, because I've just recently fallen in love with the rosette die, and I love letters made with glossy accents! But my favorite thing in this post is the frame - I LOVE it!
