Yey! Tim is Back with his Christmas Tags!!

Hello Peeps!

I am sure you all know by now that the Wonderful Tim Holtz is back with his lovely Tags for Christmas!!  To save you looking just click HERE and you will be whizzed over there by Holtz Magic! 

Due to being up to my eyeballs in preparations for the first Craft Fair (today) I didn't get chance to have a got at yesterday's but so that I don't end up permanently behind I have decided to have a go at today's (I also adore the Deer die so any ole excuse!!).  I will do yesterday's tomorrow and hopefully (ironing permitting!) I will to do tomorrow's tomorrow too!!  Confused?  Don't worry.  So am I!!

Here it is (sorry it is on the wonk a bit but I am currently using Hubby's camera as I have lost the charger for mine - eek!).....


I have to confess that I did not have the Distress Stain, Distress Inks, Perfect Pearl mist, canvas, pine stem, paint,hessian or start to make Tim's exactly but as the Great Man himself tells us, I improvised.   To be truthful I could have had a rummage and looked for some hessian but I could not resist using this ribbon, especially as I manged (by luck honest) to get the wording on the ribbon perfick (sorta).  And the red bell may look a little big but I lurve them!!

In order to get the "resist" I used the Claudine Hellmuth matt adhesive and stamped the Merry Christmas and then let it dry.  I then painted over the whole tag with acrylic dabber. 

Right, now I am going to have a lookie round at some of my buddies' blogs and then hit the road that leads to beddieland as I am shattered!


TTFN and Sweet Dreams.

Love the tag - I too have some hessian but I think its upstairs somewhere so I used hemp instead (would have lost an hour looking for it otherwise!) - good luck making the two today, I have to take DS1 to Tennis, then its his Christmas Fayre at School, then he is having a few friends round for a birthday party and sleepover and then tomorrow its his family birthday party - not sure when I will get mine done but I am sure I will! Have a great day.
