Tag Tuesday Challenge #53 -- By Your Own Hand


Today's theme is something I've been contemplating for a while.   Then Pam suggested "doodling" when I asked for challenge ideas.  So here is my version of it -- create a tag on which you include something done in your own hand.
For my first tag I drew the dragonfly by hand, the dotted lines, as well as all the handwriting.  (Everybody hates to see their own handwriting, don't they?)   I've got to really work on getting over that.
On the second tag I drew in the stems and leaves of the flower, the word bloom, and the flower around the hole in my tag.
So this week let's see what you can "doodle" or draw in your own hand on your tag!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now for important RAK news:  The random winner from last week's participants is Kris.  (Which I think is very appropriate since Kris joined in our very first challenge.)  Kris, I'll be sending you out an ephemera pack. 
I'm also sending an RAK out to Pam who helped with this week's theme.  Thanks, Pam!
