...TAG you're it! Stand outs!!!

Apologies, heaped upon more apologies, I should have had this post written up weeks ago, but as usual, there's always a heap more to do than I plan for! lol.

Anyhow, if you're new to the blog, you might not know that we ran a fabby competition a wee while ago for folks to make Christmas tags, we wanted your very finest! And that's exactly what we got!!

164 deliciously fabulous tag designs!!

If you haven't yet seen them and are in need of a little inspiration, then check them all out right here.

We awarded a fabby grand prize to one lucky random participant but NOW I'm taking the chance to award a few more little spot prizes to tags that especially, shall we say, tickled!!

Let me stress, this is not a talent competition, I was not looking for technical skill, I was just on the look out for those tags which particularly tickled for one reason or another!

So, here they are, my top ticklers!!:

Kelly, loved the wooden look tag and wee house from Sewing box Hugs all gussied up for Christmas!

Debby, for the beautifully soft colour and CAS design

Anne Kristine, for the authentic Vintage style of her gorgeous tag!

Laurie, for the genius of this super snowflake tag, sentiment stamped on clear film!

Gabi, for the fabulous hand crocheted detailing, and the beautiful deep blues of winter.

And, last but not least, Meredith's mum-in-law, for the hand beaded garlands on this wee tree and the fabby vintage detailing!

All six ladies, if you could please email me, adding the words TAG SPOT WINNER to your subject line I will email you with details of your spot prize! email me on:

I could have went on and on, indeed I intended to pick only three! but there were so many beautiful creations put forward for our challenge that I just could not stop at 3!

I want to thank everyone who took part and joined in to make our tag challenge such fun! I very much enjoyed looking at all of the creations and it was so hard to decide on only six!!

So folks, Christmas is nearly upon us and I encourage everyone to play along with our next challenge...details coming soon...LOL, it's called the Waltzingmouse Stamps, NICE List, and I'll fill you all in tomorrow...don't worry, we know you don't have time to make anything...
