ABC at Catch The Bug!

Today is Anything but a card day at Catch The Bug.  I make Christmas Baskets for the neighbor each year and I always find I have to much space to fill so this year I grabbed a box of bones for their dog to use as filler so I made a cute tag to go on it.  I am using Candy Cane Charlie, I colored with copics and added a touch of designer paper from my scraps to give it some more color.
