DAY 1 OF 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS


Phew just made it by the skin of my teeth. For me Day 1 had to be like many others, improvisation, as we cannot possibly own everything of Tim Holtz unless we are millionaires.....lol

100% recycle used to make this tag. Oh no, have just seen Day 2 come up......eeek, See you later must have my porridge before I can face another .

Take care, keep warm, Hugs Annette x

Just catching up here!
Absolutely adore this Netty. Your houses look fab done like a little village and all the texture is gorgeous.
I also think it's better not to have all of Tim's stuff cos it makes us more creative (even if it is hard work sometimes!)
