PTI - July 2013 Blog Hop (#2)

Hello & Welcome!
I really enjoy making "Tag-Cards".
(Two tags are die cut and attached at the top to make a "Tag-Card".)
 I made this for the PTI - July 2013 Blog Hop.
The Theme is "Fruits of Summer", and I've used the fourth Color Inspiration photo.

I will be sending this to my Dear Mom, to let her know I'm thinking of her.
(She has been ill.)
