You're in for a treat -- we've got holiday tags ranging from clean and simple, mixed media, and everything in between! The STAMPlorations girls pulled out all the stops for this hop.

Holiday tags can be can be for any holiday you celebrate!

Anyway, take a look at the prizes:

...and I may just throw in a couple of surprise prizes, especially if there are entries that catch my attention :o)
