A Little Tag - Be Mine

Well, my daughter asked me if I could whip up a quick tag/bookmark for a Valentine's Day gift she was giving yesterday, and so.....of course I said, "YES"!  It was quick and easy, and I was able to combine a few different challenges for another entry.  I used a simple tag and washi tapes from the wonderful Freckled Fawn, and then added a Melissa Frances Valentine's (Be Mine) rub-on.  I tied it off with a bow made from crinkled seam binding, a resin flower from Mariana Grigsby's Etsy Shop, some jute from Papertrey Ink, and then I inked the tag with Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge ink.  That's about it.
Here are the fabulous challenge blogs where I'm sharing this little tag, and a little bit about each one:
Catered Crop Challenges - Polka Dot Recipe Challenge.  I've commented on each sweet little polka dot project entered in this lovely blog's challenge, and have seen some amazing art.  This challenge is sponsored by the AWESOME Paper Sweeties who just happens to be having a February Stamp Release Party on Facebook.  Check it out for yet another chance to win!
Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog - Challenge #197 - Valentine's Challenge sponsored by the WONDERFUL Freckled Fawn whose delightful products I used to make this tag.  See details above.
The Craft's Meow Challenge Blog - Challenge #13 - February Sketch Challenge.  I've used this darling inspiration sketch to enter several little projects, in the hopes of winning some of The Craft's Meow's DELIGHTFULLY wonderful stamps.
Great Impressions Rubber Stamps - February Challenge - Have a Heart.  I've applied for the GDT spot with this awesome company, and am crossing my fingers to be able to work with their amazing rubber stamps!
Oh, one little question before I run off.  Does anyone know of any cool apps for the IPhone for us "crafty" girls?  I recently got my IPhone and don't know what to do with it - other than text and make phone calls.  I could use any good app suggestions you might have.
Thanks for stopping by to say hello.  Have a very blessed weekend!
