Yes, I know I'm getting this in just under the wire!  But here's my first tag for the 12 Tags of 2013 challenge:

A couple of quick notes:
You'll notice the overriding palette of this tag is green and blue.  Those are my fave colours, so you can expect to see a lot of them.  :-)  Also, none of the stamps on my tag this month are ones I carved.  Part of this was about me being pressed for time (after, yes, procrastinating all month!), and part of it was about me becoming more comfortable using stamps that I didn't create, since they've been a part of my art for so long.

Well, that's it for now!  Hope you enjoy!
