I'm always thrilled when a new E-Team Blog Hop rolls around, but I was over the moon when I learned that the topic this time is Seasonal Tags and ATCs. Yes, I've succumbed completely to Early Onset Holiday Syndrome, to the extent that I'm already drinking eggnog lattes and listening to Harry Connick, Jr.'s Christmas albums... over and over. I guess I just need a little Christmas. Right this very minute.
Here's my ATC
And, here's my tag.
As with every E-Team Blog Hop, Daisy from eclectic Paperie has some prizes up for grabs, and all you need to do to be eligible to win is leave a comment at each artist's blog. Easy as pumpkin pie, and you have until Thursday, November 17 to get those blog visits in. Daisy will randomly choose three winners from among all the comments, and each will win an awesome "Be Merry Goodie Box!"
All winners will be announced on the eclectic Paperie blog on Friday, November 18.
The eclectic Paperie E-Team is:
