On a Roll!!

Ok so here is tag number 9.

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!

Hope you like it?
Thanks for looking.

Tags for days 7 & 8

Here is my tag for day 7, this was my second attempt as I used funky foam for the flowers the first one and the ink wouldn't dry. Glad I changed it I am quite happy with the finished tag.

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.

Tim's Tag 6

Here is my 6th tag, it is very different to Tim's I was in the mood to use pink! I also didn't have any grunge board so hand cut the reindeer from card, I used the tattered leaves die again for the trees, heat embossed with gold detail. I found a stamp that I haven't used in ages too (New York skyline). I added charms too and a flower too.

I hope you like it thanks for looking.

T!m's Catch up!

Here is my tag for day 1 of Tim's 12 tags, I had loads of fun making this tag, I hand cutthe haunted house and used the tattered leaf die for the tree as it was the only thing I could think of using, once I got started on the tag it didn't take too long.

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.

T!ms Tag day 3 and a Pretty Picture

Today I was lucky and didn't have to go to work as my car was going nowhere, still snowed in.
I rang work and they decided to close at 12pm I was supposed to start at 1pm :).

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 am not really sure what happened to my bird though!

I haven't got all the supplies so did my own take on the tag I hope you like it?
I will joining in some more tags.

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

Thanks for looking.

Snow way!!

I arrived home from work on Tuesday 30/11/10 to heavy snow. I was unable to get up the hill near our street and enjoyed being a lady of leisure. Being dug out by six males. what fun, but I have never seen snow like it before. this is a picture of the snow after a well earned drink about
9.30 pm. the snow got much deeper in the morning.

It was so deep the town pretty much came to a stand still and had a snow day! with lots of fun.
