The Very First Winner of the Blog Dares is....

It is with great excitement I announce the  Winner of the Triple Take Dare  that launched the Emerald Creek Dares
Congratulations to Tammy!
Tammy used Washi Tape as her "tripled" items and I was thrilled because I don't (didn't now) use washi tape hardly ever. She created an awesome bookmark, taught me how to get fonts and script on to washi tape, and made a cute tassel too, yep it was washi tape again.

Thank you to all who participated and commented.
