12 Tags of Christmas 2010 - Day 2

I've put 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

Here is my tag for today ;)

I was relieved today when I saw the tag as yesterday was a bit of a marathon!

Still missing elements of course but I'm so much happier with this tag :)

The greenery on the fir cone is T!m but it does not have the cone on it on the mini version set so I used a stamp of a ........ fern!
Yep it turned out nicely as a double up for one of those long fir cones ;)
Again the music stamp on the mini set was a bit small for my liking on this design so I went for an Artistic Stamper one....mmmmmm.
No splatter stamp so mixed some walnut stain with water on the mat and loaded a paint brush and tapped it to get the little drops.....mmmmm love that too
....added a wooden star (Ikea ages ago)
....and would you believe the pearl droppy bit is an old earring.
.....oh dear! I'm going to get known for bad taste in a minute HOL!

Jennie The Artistic Stamper is going to give away a goody bag full of T!m stuff to a lucky person who shares a tag using the linky post. the more tags you share the better your chances are :)
This will be drawn by random after the end of T!m's 12 Tags of Christmas. that not super generous? :) Thanks Jennie!
While we are on the subject I'm adding a separate prize too!
Don't know what it is yet but it I'll try and make it extra special to thank you all for playing along ;)
xoxo Sioux
