TAG! TAG! TAG! TAGORAMA!

Greetings, dear reader!

As promised, here are the latest tags sent in for the swap! First, from Rosemary of Retro Rosie:



Ijust love the primary colors and that sweet, rosey cheeked boy!



BOTH rosey-cheeked boys! lol


THEN, I received a package from Lisa Whitlock...of Barncat fame:



She said she couldn't decide which image to use...so she used them ALL! I love it!



Next we have the (so far) largest entries of the swap from Tamera of The Stone Fence Cottage: She sent 6 tags in all! WOOT! Behold the mammoth goodness:



A cowgirl...wranglin a pig! How perfectly hilarious! I just LOVE the aqua color!

And then a rodeo in blue and red...how perfectly perfect! The old songs and the silver charms are wonderful personal touches!



And to add to the personal touches, a bit of an "artist bio" on the back of each tag!



As if those weren't enough, she also sent these...CRACKED ME UP! Just get a load of the singing fruit...cowgirl/cowboy! These are perfect Halloween images! The colors and the fibers just add to the "zing!"



These are my new FAVORITE Halloween images! LOVE!



THEN (by now I had heart palpitations...I kid you not!) I opened these from Erin of the Norman Five in West Texas:



Another first: Oval Tags! Aren't they beautiful? The images and flowers and embellishments are just all SO SWEET!





And, again, a bit about the artist on the back! Just gorgeous!



I am SO thrilled with all of the wonderful tags! I'm so glad I was selfish enough to ask for ya'll to make one for me too! More excitement as the drawing for the Cowgirl Quiltie happens today!

Hugs,
Paula Clare

They're all great! Oval, I never thought of that! Such fun images, your box is going to be FULL! Don't remember if I mentioned it or not, but the little gal on the back of my tag is me on my Reddy pony. I think about 1968, yikes!

Glad they arrived. My husband had them in his pick-up over a week forgetting to send them. Also, I did not put a hole in them because my hole puncher was at school. I kept forgetting to bring them home.

Next weekend, in Lubbock, Texas is the National Cowboy Symposium. Every year I have my 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classes write a poem for the poetry contest. The winners get to read their poems out loud. It is so much fun.
