Tag Swap Show 'n' Tell

Wow! I was thrilled to bits when I got home one cold wet Friday afternoon to find a little parcel of gorgeous tags waiting for me. The tag swap was organised by the lovely Carolyn Saxby, creator of Tag Tuesday - we each created five tags and sent them off, then Carolyn divvied them up and sent us each five tags by five different designers. It must have been lots of fun to go through all those tags but also lots of hard work.
I really enjoy being on the Tag Team and perusing fellow Taggers' tiny works of art each week, so to receive  five actual tags in the post was brilliant :o) Here they are

 This one was from Carolyn Saxby - the background is a gorgeous mixture of colours, patterns and textures, the little gingerbread man is so sweet and ...

 I just love the cute little bell and the luscious ribbon - Thanks Carolyn! x
Next up is this one from Valerie AKA "Mrs A" - I love the cute retro reindeer image and the simple gold against red is really striking. I'm also very envious of Mrs A's embossing skills! Look at the detail ...

Thanks Mrs A - it's boootiful (as we say in Norfolk!)
This one is from another Valerie - I love the vintage style and the pretty mixture of ribbons and beads tied through the top.
Here's a close-up of the sweet little angel. Thanks Valerie! x
This one is from SusieJ - I love the bright, fresh colour scheme and all the pretty details ...
... look at the tiny beads threaded onto wire and wrapped around the tree - love it! Thanks SusieJ! x
Last but by no means least, this one is from Jan Smith - I love the design and all the cool details, like the vintage label and the tiny button for Rudolph's nose is actually stitched on ...
... and look at this tiny little bell :o) Thanks Jan! x
I've put all of these up with my Christmas cards and they look FAB! Thanks again everyone xxx
Now here's a quick look at the tags I sent down to Cornwall for Carolyn to distribute - wonder who got them? I hope they like them :o)




Thank you Graphics Fairy for all the vintage images :o)
Well that's it for now - Happy Christmas everyone and may 2013 bring you everything you wish for xxx

I was fortunate enough to get one of your wonderful tags in the Christmas Tag Tuesday exchange! It's the vintage Santa on a background of antiqued music with green dotted and red checked tape topped by a green checked ribbon with a tiny bell. It's charming and I really appreciate you sharing your incredible talent with me!
