to get the Christmas tags posted before the end of the year! 

I have been absent for such a long time due to ill health, and missed so many tags, I feel really sad about that. But I am back now, yay, and looking forward to the tag challenges in 2013.

I took part in the Christmas tag swap, and received such lovely tags back. Thank you so much, Carolyn, for hosting the swap and huuuuge thanks for running the wonderful Tag Tuesday challenges. Here are the tags I received -

From Valerie -

Valerie made this beautiful tag despite being very unwell indeed, and I so appreciate it. The tag is very special indeed. Thank you, Valerie. You can find her blog here.

From Kim -

I love this understated tag, it is gorgeous! I admire the precision of the little squares, and the tiny image is adorable. Thank you so much, Kim. I can't find a blog for her, but you can visit her at her Etsy shop here.

From Elizabeth -

A beautifully decorated Christmas tree and pressies! The tiny pearls look fantastic on the tree, as does the star, and the stamped pressies have a great three dimensional look. Thank you, Elizabeth! This is her blog.

From Valerie Anne -

Mrs. A from It's an Alien Life made this wonderful Rudolph tag. It makes me smile every time I look at it. The raised silver design looks fabulous on the light blue background. And of course I BELIEVE! I saw Rudolph again this year when we went to the farm to buy our Christmas Tree. Thank you, Valerie.

I don't know who made this next tag, I wish I did, because it really is lovely, and I would like to thank you, whoever you are - 

A lot of work has gone into this tag, from the great background to the amazing toy shop window and the engraved Ye Old Toy Store sign. 

Here they all are, together -

I had made my swap tags as soon as I got back from France, luckily before I fell ill. I picked one of them for this week's Christmas and New Year challenge. Yep, thats cheating a little, but I couldn't make one in time -

I hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas, and I wish you all a happy, healthy and successful 2013! See you in the new year. Toodlepip xxx
