12th and Final Day of Xmas Tag Techniques

Hello Everyone and Happy New Year.  Today I show you the last Tag of my Xmas Tag Blog Hop.  OK so I only got one Blog Hopper, Helen, to whome I am very grateful and now follow her Blog which is a very nice blog http://creativechooke.blogspot.co.uk/ so why not take a look.  I appreaciate it was a very busy time and I appreciate that some of you don't know what Blog Hopping is - it seems to be done mostly in America, here we seem to do Challenge Blogs instead.  Blog Hopping is really a way to find new blogs and crafters of interest and can lead you to places you never dare to tread, which can also lead those who would never have found your blog in a million years right to you through your "Hoppers", It is usually done in a way where everyone meets up on a particular Blog on a certain day and time and then you all visit each other.
So it is a win win situation and I will not give up trying to unite us Brittish Bloggers!!!

So It was a bit of a journey through my 12 Days of Xmas Tag Techniques we had laughter, sadness, parties, hangovers, days when I never thought I would make it to 12 Tags, days when I wondered if I can craft at all? and some wonderful Guest Tags from my Crafty Friends who helped me out more than they will ever know - Joan, Dimps & Karen who I craft with in suzicraft Shop and who are good friends and great to craft with, and Jessica who visits the shop with her Mam and Nanna who is Age 8 a beautiful girl and very talented.   Fellow Design Team member Eileen Goodwin who I feel quite close too even though we have never met, we enjoy being a bit cheeky and not too serious although she does produce seriously good work so check it out at http://eileenscraftyzone.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/distress-inks-and-adirondack-embossing.html#comment-form   Eileen recently adopted a Ferrit too, and a lovely lady who made her TV Debut on 4th December 2012 with her card Designs is Yvonne Froehlich  who I met at the NEC Craft Show this year - she is such a lovely lady and also a bit cheeky, I like that, she "bagged" us a seat in a class because she noticed two people hadn't turned up which was great fun to do. So you can check out her blog entry at http://lifestooshortforworking.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/50-shades-of-grey.html#comment-form

And so my last Tag and Final entry for my 12 Days of Xmas Tag Techniques goes back to the route of all my Crafting for 2012 - it is a Design Team card that I currently have on the http://www.splodgeaway.com/  Blog for our theme of "Party Time & New Year"  so it is fitting that it is my last entry here.  It is actually a Card made to look like a Tag & Tag Holder.  What we call a "Happy Accident" so why not nip along to the Blog and see how it was made.

So I will say Thank you to everyone who helped me with this Blog Hop and the 12 Tags - it was hard work, time consuming but fun. And to everyone who visits and follows my Blog I would like to say Happy New Year - Alles Gute zum Neuen Jahr Prosit Neujahr - Bonne année - Sawatdee Pi Mai - Blwyddyn Newydd Dda - Boldog uj evet - Barka da sabuwar shekara - Godt Nytt År  
 Sorry if I have missed any but  Google, I mean I can't think of any more!!!!!! 
So here is my Tag / Card "Auld Lang Syne" to New Beginnings.!
