a couple of Tags

This first tag is for Dude Time Doodles
 we had to use the digi they supplied...Gavin Ghost and use him in a humorous way.
This is my first time playing with them, I think this tag fills the bill:
 card stock was plain ivory, part of a 12 x 12 sheet I used several  TATTERED ANGELS' shimmering mists on. Cut with the original SIZZIX Super Traditional Tag. Cats Eye fluid Chalk inks by COLORBOK, sponged and smeared on tag, and a little on Gavin. Gavin was colored with PRISMACOLOR pencils and blending pencil.
"Don't Pull My Chain!" computer generated with type writer key font, individual letters cut out with a 1/4 circle punch by STAMPIN' UP. Gavin is Coated in Glow-in-the-Dark MOD PODGE. The letters are elevated on foam dots.
Misc. ribbons, old jewelry chains, and 2 types of Punchinella from SKYBLUEPINK.


I am also entering this tag in the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time ...anything goes
Shopping our Stash ...dog or digi or denim
Ribbon Carousal ...edgy with ribbon, twine etc
The Burtonesque Dolls ...the lighter side of Burton....(Ghosts in NBC and BJ)
Top Tip Tuesdays ...no curved edges
Crafting for all Seasons ...tags
Paper Pretties ...die cuts (the tag is a die cut)
Paper Play challenges ...make your own DP
The Crafty Purple Frog ...anything but a card
Digis with Attitude ...anything goes
Allsorts ...anything but a card
Challenge Up Your Life ...no patterned paper


Second Tag is one I just felt like making:


 I used a manila tag  and covered it with a mix of specialty-handmade papers, origami paper, and the card stock the digi is on. It is colored with STAMPIN' UP markers. The Chinese Lantern digi  and the Moment sentiment(Moment-a brief, indefinite interval of time. This moment counts!) are both from TLC Creations.
Misc. fibers and ric-rac used for top of tag.

I am entering this tag in the following challenges:
The Crafty Purple Frog ...anything but a card
Digis with Attitude ...anything goes
Allsorts ...anything but a card
Top Tip Tuesdays ...no curved edges
Crafting for all Seasons ...tags
Shopping our Stash ...dog or digi or denim
