DAY 5 - 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS!!


I know....gasp shock horror whatever is she doing I can hear you all cry..........this is nothing like Tims' Santa Tag.......... and sobs of real tears from all the purists..........well its like this my new stamps arrived yesterday from the wonderful ART JOURNEY and of course after yearning for them for so long I had to use at least one of them didn't I.......and I love this girl............ so after my floor had been laid in the kitchen and all the cleaning up done I sat down and made this tag last night (I deserved a treat...lol). But did follow one of the techniques which is the white acrylic edging, albeit its a bit feathery and also did the music and diecut, but the numbers are stickies.....not metal. (hang head in shame) I silver embossed the snowflakes. The Noel stamp was a freebie from another wonderful shop CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS. My plan for all these tags is to make them into a Tag Collage Christmas Picture that can be hung up.
Will try and do better for Day 6.....honest.......and will try not to be so selfish...

If you would like to pop over to Artyjen.blogspot you can see how it should be done and between you and me there are some terrific tags displayed there.
Challenges entered PaperPlay - Holiday Tags and The Artistic Stamper

Will be back later to view all your fabulous blogs. Thanking you for sticking with me I do appreciate it. Take care, Annette x

You can't do better for me...because I love this, Annette and I am not a purist. (The more mistakes I make , the better I usually like things.) {But I know you meant true to T H's Christmas tag recipe.}
The image is lovely and you deserve the treat of having taken the time to make it. I think it is perfect.
Have fun
