12 Tags of 2012 - November!

Hello Friends

As some of you know I went on a lickle day trip to the NEC for the Hobby Crafts Craft Fair the other week and spent some of my hard saved up pennies on some goodies.  Well when I saw Mr Tim Holtz's Tag for November I could not resist (get it!) having a little stamp with some of my new goodies and joining in!   

At the show I had in my hand the set of Tim Holtz stamps or the Soldier die and as you can see the stamps won.  Well, they were on a ridiculously good offer with Craft Obsessions how could I leave them there?  Especially as when I went past a little later all of these sets had gone!  (I am grinning now!)

And here is another little close up so you can see the stamping on the background. This is one of the only times I do not mind ironing!!

Now Mr Holtz wanted us to use Distress Stains but I don't have many colours and certainly not the colours I wanted to use (the Seedless Preserves are to die for!).  So I used the good ole' wrinkle free distress method for colouring the background.  The word "Joy" came from the Season's Silhouettes stamp set.  

Hope you like and please leave me a comment so I know you have been.
