We've had a fantastic year of tag swapping! Lots of great tags have been swapped and shared, techniques learned or revisited and fun chatter along the way .

I thought why not a bonus round to end out 2013. So here's the final tag swap for the year. If you've been able to participate in each swap then you'll have 13 tags for 2013.
Here's the details for this round-
The theme will be 4 seasons.
So your tag will need to have something that relates to all 4 seasons on your tag.
As always tag needs to be a rectangular hanging tag.
Stamping is required.
No technique requirements this time, you can do whatever you'd like. I figured with the theme, this may be a bit kitchen sink for some of us

Sign ups will be through the 25th and I will post your partner on the 26th.

Deadline to get your tag out to your partner will be December 21st.

I hope you'll tag along this month!

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall,
Who's the 'funnest' Host of all?
Pug! That's who!

Lucky 13. Love them Baker's dozens.

I'm in! 'Course I may have to check my sink for stuff, pal.

So glad you are keeping sign-up 'tight-ish'. Figure all those who have swapped will see it & join us.

Thanks for providing me with my project 'start' for the day.

Whoo-Hoo! Looks like we taggers are going to end 2013 in style! I found my tagbase among some older raks & I can see doing lots of masking. Guess I have my work 'cut out' for me! (Sorry. Couldn't resist.)

I'm so glad we've got some swappers to end out the year!

I can't wait to see how these end up looking with the theme.

I've got too many ideas in my head, so I need to narrow down what I want to use and do.

Still time for taggers (old & new) to sign-up for Pug's Bonus Round!

LeighAnn. Serves you right for coming up this theme! I spent an hour going thru tons of my stamps yesterday! 'Sok! I made a big pile of possibles & have them in one (big) envelope. About halfway thru my 'looking', I realized I had the 'perfect' way to tackle this project & got it underway. Still lots to do, but well begun is a good thing. So far the 'kitchen sink' is intact, but probably not for long...

Last day to join us for the Bonus Round.

I didn't make progress on my tag yesterday, but hope to work on it today. 'Least I know what my next step is. Then I'll have to think a bit about where to go with it.

I'm in...reluctantly only because the holiday prep is in the mix AND I have no idea for a four season tag. Fair warning I'm not feeling real confident I can make the 12/21 deadline so if that's a problem you should feel free to leave me out of this one. No hard feelings for sure!

Oh Marshia, I am feeling the same but decided I needed to stay focused on making Christmas and sadly need to sit this one out. So glad to hear I am not the only one feeling the seasonal crunch.

Sorry, I'm super late to getting the swap list posted guys!
My internet has been sketchy all day, plus I had Drs appointments and errands all day so it's been a long day!

Enough of my rambling, here's the list. I wrote all our names down and drew from a hat. Here's the swapper list!

LOL, Marshia! I understand your 'reluctance', but I'm so glad you joined the swap. I love your work & don't have nearly enough of it in my actual hands. 'Course that's true for all of those who have been swapping during 2013! Long as your Bonus arrives before 2015 (note the year!), we're fine, ma'am.

Hey Pug? Thanks for posting the matchups! We all know that you (like everyone else) are super busy with stuff. 'Sok! This repeating swap has a great record of 'follow thru' from all!

No worries, Heidi. I doubt I will get to start mine until sometime next week. I may gather my supplies I want to use this weekend if I get a chance.

Marshia & I connected. She provided an address change so we're fine.

Yeah. It's not like we have to rush these tags. There's a nice timeframe & we all keep in touch as we go along. That's a nice touch.

Mine's coming along, but I was fortunate in figuring out where it was going rather quickly this time--a true blessing. I'm coming up on the tough part now... Have to deal with a glossy surface & that's often difficult for me. I'm still having fun.

Best to all the taggers!

LOL, 'Joe'! Sounds like you are another who knew what they wanted to do for this tag.

I really liked doing the '4 seasons' theme. Given all the stamps so many of us have, it wasn't difficult to find images for all 4. The hard part was whittling down the choices.

I'm with Rutabagapie, I haven't even started on this one. I am trying to figure out some ideas about how to do the seasons, but haven't quite gotten there yet. Since I have a few minutes, I am off to scour stamps, hehehe.

While I'm here wondering what I'm going to do for a 4-season tag, Looser was busy producing his tag! I received his tag yesterday! It's so beary, beary, beary cute! Can't wait for y'all to see it.

Hi Sarbear! I will post the sign up for the Jan tag probably at the end of this month. If I don't see a post from you since you'll be out of town, I can add you to the swap list already if you'd like! Just let me know.

I am on round 3 of my tags. I had a major accident and dropped a stamp onto one of my tags yesterday no fixing it either. Hate when that happens!

I at least know what it will be and have the stuff out. As soon as I get all my packages mailed I can work on it!

No worries Kathy! I totally understand!

Mine are done, I think. I keep thinking of changing one thing on them. I should probably just seal the envelope and send them out!
