Getting into Christmas

You probably know that every week, I try and get a tag done for the challenge over at the Tag Tuesday blog.  Well, I get most of them done, it just gets a wee bit difficult when we are in France. In addition to the weekly challenges, Carolyn suggested a Christmas tag swap, and approx. 22 of us took her up on it. As we got back to the UK on the weekend, I was able to play with my craft supplies and I finally finished the 5 tags yesterday, yay.

And here they are, in no particular order -

Tag No. 1 -



Tag No. 2 -



Tag. No. 3 -



Tag No. 4 - 



Tag. No. 5 - 



And a 6th one, for a friend -




I am definitely in crafting mood at the moment, but unfortunately that also means that I have had very little time to visit blogs, arrgghh! I will catch up with you all though, I promise. In the meantime I would like to thank you all for your lovely comments, which are so very much appreciated, and also give all the sweet new followers a big welcome hug. Thanks, gals.

Toodlepip and hugs all round today, because I am feeling all soppy. xxx

Much swooning from here too Lizzie!
Such a beautiful angel - isn't she!
Floating there in the clouds amongst feathers too!!!
Love all of your added touches of trims, beads, braids and sparkles you add so beautifully!
You definitely have the Tagger's touch for sure!
It's all gorgeous and so inspiring too!
Big hugs,
Suzy

I really like your tags. Question: do you cut out the individual angels, children, etc., and then layer on the background of writing? Or do you print it that way? If you cut those figures out for each tag, I must say that you have a fine hand for delicate cutting.

You do such marvelous work. I hope the rain stops soon so you can get back to listing on Etsy.

Blessings, Marrianna

Liz,
I love them all, they are so pretty, but I adore that
last tag! She looks like the perfectly contented girl in her Christmas finery, happy and joyful in celebrating the birth of the Savior....I love the german glass glitter...it is so shiny and nothing shines quite like it!
You are such a sweetie to give your beauties to your friends.
Heart hugs to you,
Betsy
