Thank You Till Next Year!

'Tis with a hint of sadness (and perhaps a touch of relief! LOL ;)) that we say goodbye to the 12 tags of Christmas for 2010!
But me being me.........bring on 2011 I say!!! YEH!
See you then.....that's a promise.....right?!

I really......really cannot believe that there were 541 different tags posted here.
...I know I've said it before but this has been amazing.....some of you will not know but I've been re-adjusting to the loss of my DH in May.
...I only wish he could have seen you all joining in....he was a very inclusive sort of person :)

You have been, sorry I'll say it again.................A-MAZE-ING!

Such inspiration...such joy in sharing.....what a fabulous thing to do is stamping :)
It's been a privilege to see all those tags.
(I've still yet to comment on quite a lot...but I get some days off at Christmas so I'll see you then ;)

Now let's cut to the chase....
You want to know if you have won the candy! ;)
And here it is....

1. Book "100 Great Ways to Rubber Stamp"
2. The Artistic Stamper Air Mail plate and Kling-on to mount it on
2. Set of 5 cards and envelopes printed with an oriental design to add your own decoration to
3. Rollergraph with "Dogwoods" roller and ink
4. Adirondack ink "Peach Bellini" and "Latte"
5. T!m Configuration box
6. Alcohol ink "Raisin"
7. Shaving brush for stippling inks (one of my favourite things to do)
6. A bag stuffed full of an assortment of little treats including Maya Road chipboard shapes and Idea-ology metal parts/acrylic shapes
7. Three large jingle bells because "IT'S CHRISTMAS!"
8. My "Cava Queen" ATC
9. Oh and some real chocolate candy only I forgot to put it in the pile!!!! ;)
