  1. Yes they do! I am IN LOVE with this tag Susan! Love the image the watercoloring on it and the shell, and the anchor is perfect! Thanks so much for joining us on this painty challenge here at CC3Challenge!!

  2. Susan....This tag is adorable! i so love your vintage image of the bathing beauties. My, my....swimsuits have come a LONG way, haven't they? :) Your stamped and colored shells are awesome!I love that you stamped them in the same colors you water colored them with! That really is a nice effect instead of stamping in black. I also really like your background splattered tag...very "watery" feeling. Your little anchor and chain are also way cute! Thanks for joining us and sharing your art at CC3C. <3 Candy

  3. This tag is delightful Susan- and how appropriate is the watercolor for this scene! I like the distressed edges on the vintage photo & the watery feel of the ribbon choice. That anchor and chain diecut and the paper choice for the sand are great added elements... well done toots!

  4. Awesome tag Susan! Love the background colors, and the embellishments are cool! You're right, girlfriends matter!
