"I'm a True B!TCH" tag

These are the tags I made for the Fabulous tag swap Kathryn at The {Scrap} Beach hosted in May. The theme was "I'm a _______ B!TCH". We were to decide what kind of inner B!TCH we are and create a tag using that as our inspiration. I did have a little trouble at first deciding what my inner B!TCH is, but then ......Kathryn to the rescue!!!!! She reminded me that I am a huge "True Blood" fan so I must be a "TRUE" B!TCH. Then Crystal sent me the PERFECT Fang stamp and the rest is history!!!! Below are photos and a video along with a list of supplies I used in this project. I hope you enjoy it :-)
