I received from Onyxnox and  witchhippie on Monday but it was too dark and dreary to get good photos. Then I was gone most of Tuesday, so it's taken a few extra days to get these posted but they're worth the wait.

Onyxnox sent me this lovely note card so I wanted to share it with everyone.

These are the cards and tags she made for me to use.

She's been playing with her alcohol inks, water colors, and specialty glitters. I always love to see what she's mastering now. Keeps me on my toes, but I don't think I'll ever catch up with her.  Cheesy

Then, these are the cards and tags witchhippie sent.

She also included all these papers and extra embellishments for me to play with. You may be thinking, but I only count three tags. HA! That's because the fourth tag is hiding with the extra embellishments! It's the colored sign post on the left and uses sticky dots on the back rather than a string to attach it to a package. Pretty sneaky but clever.

Thank you both so much! It's going to be hard to let go of any of the cards I've received but they're too special to hoard.

I received from both Witchhippie and endymion this week and they are AWESOME cards/tags!!!

First, from Witchhippie:

She added some awesome patterned papers and ephemera - giving me more ideas on more tags/cards to make - though maybe I will save them for next years batch...

These are the tags she sent - love the little deer and I think the red truck may go on one of Jim's presents.

The cards - they are so pretty, I love the inking around the elf - such a pretty shade of blue, and the maroon red of the deer.

The red truck will have to go with the tag on one of Jim's presents - it will make a nice trend - I made a truck card for him last year!  I love the textured wreath on the plaid.

These are the ones from endymion - she made some larger sized cards so I had to take pictures individually - when I tried to make little groups, they just did not turn out well.

First, here is a notecard she sent - made by edelc, and sent in another swap - but how cute is that hedgie?

I love her take on the tags - they are reusable and I LOVE this little guy - I love black dogs and this one makes me think of my first dog Toby (my avatar) and my grandmother's Scottie dog, when I was 5.

Here are the other tags she made - aren't they great!???  I love how they can be reused and new tags put in.

Then she made two large snarky cards - love these!  I am hoping there is another snarky swap soon because these would be perfect to accompany them - and they are huge!  I am guessing 5x7"?

I love this little Scottie dog too - so cute...

and finally, this really pretty square snowflake cared - love the sentiment and the white tree die cut behind the snowflake too.

I've received from half my partners, so I want to share their work with the rest of you.

First up, my cards and tags from Artmomto5. I especially appreciate the Avengers and HP tags since we have one family birthday on Oct. 30, three on Halloween, and all of them are Sy-Fy, HP, and Avengers fans. At least I'll get to enjoy the tags for a few weeks before I give them away. The embossing and die cuts added a special creative element to each of the cards that I liked.

Then my cards and tags from mlsocci. I especially liked the shaker star card. I've made shaker tags using a slightly different technique, so I'm looking forward to copying this technique. Embossing the vellum tag, then adding the die cuts was a very elegant touch.

And finally, my cards and tags from BigBangMomma. The first thing I saw when I opened the package was the collection of HP tags. Just started laughing! Since I know her kids are HP fans, I'm surprised these tags made it out of her house. Then the cards feature Tim Holtz vintage photos. I love Tim's vintage designs, but the little girl inside one of the cards really touched me. (If any of you ever have the opportunity to meet Tim, go for it! He's even nicer in person than he seems in his videos.)

To each of my partners, thank you so much for sharing your talents with me. All the cards and tags are so different yet so perfect for my tastes.

Woo hoo! I got some great cards and tags from bec99!

I love the use of washi tape as well as the cutest stickers and die cuts. The jar ones are my favorites! The backs are cute, too:

Here are the cards, which are just as cute. The little touches on the envelopes and inside the cards may be my favorite part! So adorable!

Thanks, Bec99! I love that you included a postcard from your homeland, too.

Thanks for sharing your technique, Onyxnox. Your Cards and Tags all look so professional!

I received mine from Onyxnoxall great! Ill start with my favoritethe reindeer on the dark blue paper with punched stars.

Here are some with lots of chunky glitter!

I really like the texture on these next ones. The lettering is raised. And the wreaths have a subtle iridescence- very pretty!

These next ones look hand-drawn. Very cheery and cozy!

Thanks so much for all the gorgeosity!

I also recieved from Onyxnox!

Whatever this texture is, it's very 3-d and sparkly.

cold hands warm hearts... what could be more applicable for "Winterpeg"?

this pairing is probably my favourite!

I'm not sure why this got so washed out, it's a lovely gold in real life.

OK, found camera... really need to clean up that work table.  I am from a 8x4 feet large oak table to an area that is about 2 feet by 18 inch work space!

Anyways, I received from holistic knitter and gala_apples.

The tags from gala

the cards - I really like the tall, thin shape her cards and love the white embossing on the light blue patterned paper of the snowman card

From holistic knitter - love the different patterned papers and the glittery deer - and it is hard to take a clear picture of something so glittery!

OK, looks like everyone has received!

Just a few more pics to be posted and I can declare this swap closed - and everyone has their cards nice and early, to send out for the Winter holidays!

My final package came from kbrison - and I love it!

First of all - a cute Halloween card for a note - I never really thought of other seasonal cards - but the Halloween cards are cute!

Then, pudgy reindeer - they look how I feel after Christmas dinner!  They are very cute and I totally would have gotten this stamp/die set if I saw them!

... and Kathy knows the way to my heart is dogs dogs dogs - and these dogs are CUTE!!!!

and the matching tags, and love love love the shaker tags.  I just want to play with them! 

Look at the shaker tags - love the mini pearls!

Oh, hey, I guess I am first!
Check out these great cards from mlsocci74! 2 of them had pretty vellum envies! Yay!

The tags were super pretty too! I never would have thought to do the clear center on the tag. So fun!

Thank you, Melissa.

Also including closer ups for details!
