Misteri - Bring It On - CK #51

Hi my friends.  Well, it's almost time for school to start.  I don't have any little ones to send off, but I do go to work every day and have to deal with the traffic.  Wish I could tell you that the A/C in my car is all fixed and freezing me out, but after having it back in the shop for the FIFTH time and picking it up tonight and being assured that it was working, I was so frustrated and disappointed to have it not working properly.  Needless to say, I'll be calling the Service Tech and the Shop Forman tomorrow to find out what's going to happen next.  At least the A/C is my house is working again.  Too bad I can't drive it to work. ;)

On to my card for this week's Creative Knockouts challenge where our theme this time is Tag It!  You can add a tag to your card or just make a tag - your choice.  I have never made a tag before, so I thought I'd challenge myself and make one for this week's challenge.  I did a little research to see what everyone else was doing.  Here's what I came up with --
