12 Tags of Christmas 2010 - Day 1

It's here at last.......yes T!m's 12 Tags of Christmas has started.....go take a look here first to see his thoughts on the tag frenzy......warms the heart :)
I'm putting a stickie post up with an attached thumbnail linky thingy for anyone who wants to play along with the Splinter Group again this year!
I thought we all could add a link to the specific blog post of each tag and then it will make it easier to hop around to share the joy LOL
Don't don't have to play every day!....I'm not even sure I can......but I will have fun how ever many tags I manage to make :) don't even have to use all T!m's stamps.
...I certainly don't have all the Christmas ones!!! (Although I do have quite a few of the others! ;))
It's all about being creative :)

Here is my tag for the first day ;)

Yikes!!! It doesn't seem to matter how much T!m stuff I have.......I still don't have the right stuff!! LOL
No haunted mansion die or fence for me so had to cut my own from textured point trying to cut it out of grungeboard....just don't have the machine to do the embossing bit!
....but I'm getting the T!m one real soon I hope ;)
Embossed the lines with a ball tool and carried on regardless after that!
I have at last used that glittery wreath.....originally purchased as ear rings....I know! Don't ask!
Can't see many people having that stuff to make the tree! Had to make it by wrapping tissue paper round some thickish wire and then colouring with DI vintage photo!
What I did have that I actually used for the first time today was the pearl mica spray.
..well....I think I've died and gone to heaven 'cos that is just theee most gorgeous stuff :)
Did not have the T!m ticket stamps but spookily had bought a set of Inkadinkadoo stamps at the weekend that were ticket based.....phew! ;)
Personally I'm not happy with the colour the house has turned out not nearly dark enough for me.
Hey Ho!

Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux
