My BirdSong Tag Book Arrived!

My tag book from Karla Nathan's Birdsong Swap was waiting to welcome me home from work yesterday.  So much creativity in a sweet little bundle that came wrapped in a vintage book page.
 This the cover Karla made.  Can you imagine making over a HUNDRED of these - Wow!  There is a cute little birdcage charm and a feather attached to the bottom left corner.  Click the picture to make it larger.
 The second tag is made by Marie.  I met her during Where Bloggers Create and had admired the tag on her blog so I was thrilled when one of them was included in my book.
 This tag is made by Andrea and it is finished off with a wonderful beeswax coating.  Yummy feel!
 I love the little poem on Stephanie's tag.  The back is decorated with a neat bird stamp and banner.
 Susan's tag has a hand-embroidered bird and is sewn to a paper tag.  Oh. My. Gosh.  Hand embroidery!
 Terri's tag is printed on muslin then sewn to a paper tag.  I love the fringe and the MOP button.
 This colorful little collage was made by another Kathy.  Such a creative variety of papers and images!
The last tag was made by Beth and it is a collage of wonderful vintage wallpaper and you know my weakness for wallpaper!
After I photographed it I untied the ribbon and added my extra tag I made for myself to the back.  Participating the this swap was so much fun and I am so pleased and honored to have each and every little piece of artwork.
