Funkie Junkie - 12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 6

Hello There

Happy First Day in December to you all!  Only 24 days to Christmas!  

Only 21 days left to make all the Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas tags for 2013.  Yikes.  Today I am sharing with you my latest tag - Number 6.  HERE is Linda's tag.  As you can see I have picked most of Linda's elements from her tag and put them on to mine.  The tree, the bow, 25 and a bird.  Here is mine....... 

I cut a tag using my TH die, stamped it with my TH text stamp and then placed two Snippets of patterned paper, MME and Dovecraft, both left over from my Christmas Album.  I then dug my trusty sewing machine out and stitched around the edges.  Yes honestly!  I did put an old needle back in so that it would not blunt the one I had only recently put in.  I cut a MB tree and then cut around the stencil by hand to make a backing for it, which I stamped with my favourite TH flourish and DI ink.I then added some Stickles to the centres of the flowers.
On the bottom of the tag I stamped an AO pinecone image with DI and embossed it with clear embossing powder. 
I took a small "Silent Night" music score, and attached it to the top of the tag.  I cut the 25 from chipboard and embossed with a sparkly embossing powder several times and the dove I stamped with a snowflake pattern.  The final touch was to place a bow which I bought from Wilkinsons (4 for a £1 - I figured if I could find the ribbon it would cost me more than a £1!), placed a TH Poinsettia (VOS) and a Poinsettia (again VOS) and a little ribbon to hang the tag up. 

As I mentioned above, there is still time to join in on the 12 Tags of Christmas 2013 Challenge, if you get your skates on.  Not that I will wear skates as I am afraid of falling!  Don't forget the Challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique and there is a prize at the end!

I am taking this to the Snippets Playground just as soon as the gates are open later today.  I can also take this to this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the  Artistic Stamper Challenge for December as their themes are "Anything Goes"

Thanks for calling by and please do leave me a comment so I know you have been.
