DAY 2 OF 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS


Hi, again have had to improvise......with any luck one the tags out of the 12 Tim Holtz is making I will have the correct products........ will let you know when I strike lucky..............lol Again I have Recycled.
Would have loved to have embossed the flowers but because we are in such upheaval, with the kitchen being gutted and dust flying everywhere I do not have an available surface to do it on.
Hopefully we will be back to normal by Tuesday, fingers crossed.

This does not look remotely like Tim's tag, incorrect stamp, no metal bird.......etc........ but he did say Think Outside the Box so this will be my mantra throughout this challenge methinks...... but the colourings are close, I think.....

The weather is so freezy at the moment and thankfully today our builder has finished leaving the front door open all day........brrrrrrrrrr Hope you all have a great evening and stay warm.

Am entering this tag into the Simon Says Stamp a Tag Challenge.

Thank you for following me and hope you will stick with me through the 12 Days of Christmas and hope you won't get too bored with the tags. Take care, Annette x

Lovin' the tag Annette, to be honest I've not got any of the Tim bits n bobs so I'm just having fun visiting everyone elses tags.

Oh gosh, you are quick. Still finishing the first one ... because like you there are not many Tim Holtz products in my craft box (lol) and I have to improvise which is actually great fun. Just imagine every tag would look the same .. how boring. Love both of your tags, your recycling is fantastic!

Another fabulous tag and I love the look of the dandelions.
Oddly enough, I almost put an owl on mine but changed my mind - won't be up until tomorrow as I ran out of light!
Hope you get sorted soon as I know it's a nightmare with workmen in the house, not to mention the muck they leave.
