Now with all the issues with the Postal Service in the U.S. and Canada and Internationally, please get your Tags

Your tags are so gorgeous!! Colour ink is just too expensive for me, so I don't use digital images, but if I did I'd want all of these. Everyone who takes part in the swap is going to have a great time.
