12 Tags of Christmas - Day 3

Here we are again! Well I use the term we loosely as I haven't found many people playing along just yet...I know how they and life get in the way......I couldn't play last year :( So this year I am trying to make up for it :) I realise everyone isn't as dotty as me.........getting up at the crack of dawn like on day 2! LOL

Here is tag number 3.

I knew it would happen.........T!ms' day 3 tag obviously has his stamps bold and large all over them!! I've used the only large Father Christmas stamp I posses from Paperartsy.....sorry T!m!!

(Bang goes me winning a prize then!).

I had my husband searching for some washers all morning while I was at work and when I got home for lunch had him punching the brads.....who needs a T!m hammer when you have a DH!! LOL. I had a bash at the tartan effect but I don't have any of that glossy card so used some paper that seemed glossy but the colours are not nearly as bright as they should be I think....hey ho you can only work with what you've got....then stuck the paper onto some card so I could distress the edges.

I also do not have any gorgeous idea-ology metal bits :(........but I did have the heart slider embellishment :)........AMM bargain in a sale £1.50 for 4 marked down from £ used that threaded on the string......
The snowy bits were another challenge and in the end I used some Liquid Pearls white opal to stamp a dotty bit with........don't have black soot DI so had to substitute greens.....scrummy fibres again from Minxies candy!

Apart from all is just the way T!m did his!!!!! ;) Ha, ha, ha.

P.S. Here are some links to people I have found playing along........why not leave me a comment and tell me you are playing along also and then I can take a look see at yours then I'll add to the links every day as I get them? It will then make it so much easier for us all to visit often :)

P.P.S. Thanks for the nice comments on the tomato paste tube rose...I got the idea from Laura who sent the metal to me and obviously was also influenced by Leandra at Paperartsy. Thanks Laura and Leandra SSBFL.

  7. Wow, I've been away this week so haven't had chance to see Tim's tags yet but yours are amazing. I'm out of breath reading all about them, you must have spent hours creating them, they are real works of art. I shall have to check out all the others too, but they won't be a patch on yours. I shall try to have a go when I get myself sorted out. Can't wait to see more!!
