Valentine's Day Tags


Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing the tags for the treat bags I've made for my kids and grand-kid! :)  I used five different adorable images from Bugaboo - Puppy Love series to make the tags which are colored with copics (close-up photos are below).

I had so much fun making these yesterday! :)  I have always given my kids a little sweet treat to celebrate Valentine's Day and to show them that I am thinking of them.  Evan, Nikki and Jer are each getting a bag of cream-filled Belgian chocolate hearts, Alex is getting a bucket of Jalapeno Jack Popcorn from Kernels (he prefers savory to sweet) ... and Cooper is getting a little red racing car to play with once he's a little older and ready to grip onto things - won't be long! :)  I have a bag of treats for hubby too that I'll be giving him along with his Valentine's Day card I made a little while ago (posted here).

Here's the close-ups of the tags:






I'm very limited with my copic colors, so I outlined the puppies in brown and then filled them in with a light gray and blended the two colors together - it turned out really well.  But, I definitely need to get some more Copics to round out my supplies :)

Since I used my markers, I'm entering this into the ATS&M challenge - Make Your Mark (my second entry).

I hope you all have a wonderful and love-filled Valentine's Day tomorrow.

Delightful - you did a marv job coloring with your limited copics. These look wonderful. When you're ready, check out Oozak...got a lot of mine from there. Be sure to register for a better price. Free shipping on minimum order, but not certain how that works outside USA. Also very accurate orders & fast shipping in my experience. TFS & Hugs

Your tags are so cute!!! They make me want to try more coloring. I think I have some kind of "fear of failure" hang-up about coloring! I buy the markers or pencils, etc. and then never use them. And would you possibly share the name of that font? I do some of my sentiments on the computer, too and I really like that font. I think I've seen it before somewhere, but don't know the name of it.
