MIM #168, Card Concept: Nautical, Virginia's View #4, Darnell's 1st Challenge, AND SSS Monday Challenge

Hope you'll let me share a record for me with you.
I've done a tag for 4, yes 4 challenges!
It was bound to happen, all those wonderful challenges out there.
Not wanting to miss any!
(Just edited to add to SSS Monday Challenge: Anything Goes, so 5!)

The Card Concept Challenge: Nautical (have to go with Collage)
MIM this week with Melissa Phillips, 
Virginia's View Tag Challenge #4
And Darnel's 1st ever challenge to use something new

Tag, Herringbone EF, all dies & Cardstock: PTI
Stamps, sentiment: Ocean Bound Waltzingmouse
Jewel bob: really old necklace in pieces, too pretty to toss (ever have those?)
Chalk: ebay find
See that gorgeous sapphire shimmer card stock behind the medallion? 
Ordered from PTI, and NBUS!

Just want to say, 
head on over to Darnell's blog and check out her challenge.
She's the one that always puts a giggle in your craw when she comments.
She's celebrating 500 friends, (sure she's around 600 now), 
and is giving away some prizes if you enter and win!
Congrats Darnell!


  1. Congrats on 5 challenges Nancy! Love this are so good at making masculine cards and tags! :0) (although this could definitely be used for a feminine gift too...either way it's gorgeous!!)

  2. Wow! This is just beautiful and what a great use of your crafting time to make it meet 5 challenges with one project. Love the nautical look!

  3. This is awesome! Perfectly balanced. Great colors and textures. This is one special tag! :D

  4. What fun you have with your photos, Nancy! Your spectacular nautical tag looks even more naticular in your setting! I'm also applauding you (had to take my hands off the keyboard) for having your tag work with FIVE challenges! Who does that remind you of? I'm so proud of you!

    Thank you for your sweet words and for joining my NBUS Challenge! I appreciate that you also posted my button and spread the word to your friends!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. AWESOME work, Nancy! Every element is so well put together in this tag! So glad that you join the fun over Virginia's View Challenge!

  6. Oooh what a fabulous tag, I love your ship image :)

  7. Absolutely stunning! Love everything about it! The herringbone IP really shows through so well! Love that WMS stamp set! I don't think I could give this one away! :)
