Tag Tuesday Challenge #57 -- Postage



When I last purchased postage stamps I was blown away by the U.S. Post Office's new "Love" stamp with its beautiful purple pansies.   I knew immediately one of them would find its way on to a tag.
Which makes this weeks tag challenge "postage."    You can incorporate that into your tag by using a real postage stamp as I did, using a rubber stamp, or even creating one of your own.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
