12 Tags of Christmas - Day 12

and last but certainly not least:

 only T!m could manage to persuade me to get the iron out on New Year's Day!  Background is made exactly the same as T!ms apart from I don't have his tissue paper (are you all feeling a bit sorry for me now???) so I made my own.  I also don't have the Vintage Market alphabet but I do have Santa's Workshop one (yippee!) so I used that with glitter paper and black card.  I used the big Snowman (which I treated myself to after tag 4) rather than a little figure (mainly because I don't have one of those either but I was going to ask DS2 if I could borrow his Star Wars Wompa figure but then I thought he would only want it back and I would have to rip it off the tag so I used Snowy instead!).  He is made from grungepaper, Broken China ink, crackle glaze, with Vintage Photo and Snow Cap paint around the edge.  The Let It Snow is a stamp again by Anita and is on glossy card stock, inked with Broken China and stamped in Archival ink.  Tag finished with that fabulous tissue flower and a lovely button, two pieces of greenery from the Festive Greenery die and some tinsel.  I died some muslin with Broken China to finish it all off.  Am well pleased with this one! 

Now all tags are on my tree (apart from tag 8 which I put on my "Magic of HoLTz" layout because it would just look plain silly on the tree!):

along with lots of lovely pinecones!
tee hee!

I would just like to say a big thanks to T!m and all his BTS helpers for putting all this together and inspiring me to get creative through what has been quite a stressful month for me.

Thanks for looking - already ready for bed from Solihull

You have done TH's proud with your interpretation of tag 12. I have the pinecone die cut now as I managed to track it down finally after a fellow blogger tipped me the wink so to speak. Hugs Mrs A.

the pine cones look good and I like this interpretation - although I have to confess I've not even gone and looked at T!m's this year. Knew I wouldn't have time or energy. So, enjoying seeing yours.

Oh my gosh Nicola! What a wonderful tag! I agree, they were a blast to do! I want to go back and hit the years I missed. Like the others love the pine cones!

Your tags turned out beautifully. I like the way you displayed them on the tree with the pinecones. A tree with handmade decorations is always a winner in my book.
