It's not really like Tim's but I love it anyway. I really wanted to use the ribbon as it reminds me of two special friends, Tracey and Anita.
It was them who inspired me to join the fun with Tim's tags. Thank you both of you.
Although they have stopped me from making Christmas cards, but they are much more fun!

And for day 8.... This was fun, first I thought I would be clever and make my own mask from acetate, only to find when I cut it out the mask was too big for the tag, it took me nearly all morning to cut out so I had a hunt through my stash only to find some paper with sledges on. How happy was I!
I hand cut the houses and heat embossed them and used some ribbon from my stash, heat embossed the clock and covered it with glossy accents.
Thanks for looking, I hope you like them.

I didn't get today's tag done but I have started it and will post the completed tag soon along with day 2 which I haven't started yet.
I have had a bit of a busy day today as it was back to work as normal, except I walked home as I didn't want to park my car at the side of the road and get stuck in the snow as it is very deep.
It took me almost two and a half hours to walk home but I thoroughly enjoyed the walk (still warming up from it) :).
I hope you like the tag thanks for looking.

I cleaned the house and decided to join the fun, for the 12 tags of Christmas although I have started on day 3 I have really enjoyed it.

I haven't got all the supplies so did my own take on the tag I hope you like it?

Here is a Pretty scenic Picture I took whilst enjoying the snow.
