Caught up, for now anyway...

This is going to be a quick post just to get all my tags up for
everyone to see. This one is tag 6 from Tim Holtz's blog of
the 12 Tags of Christmas. I did not have the embossing folder
or die he used so found a stamp for the trees and actually had
a grunge board deer! I think this one came out pretty good
for improvising.
This one is tag 7 and I love the technique that Tim showed
for inking up the embossing folder before running the tag
through it so it came out already inked. I like the idea of the
flower using canvas and grunge paper but my flowers never
come out great, I cannot get any curl in the petals - must be
my lack of body heat, lol!
Tag 8 is just gorgeous! I love the simplicity and classiness
of this tag. I did not have the gold Perfect Pearl mist but had
one called Sunflower so used that and I love how rich the
colour looks. I think this one is my favourite so far.
This is tag 9 and was a fun technique but took a lot of time,
we did double or even triple masking on this and it looks fabulous.
This is tag 10, which was really quick to do for me today. Tim
used a snowman die on his and again I did not have it, I
seem to be lacking anything snowman related as I had
this problem last year with one of the tags. So I had to repeat
my substitution that I used last year which is my favourite
stamp of all time, the umbrella man.
I used him in place of a snowman stamp last year and even
added a red scarf to him then too! Not sure if you can see
the texture of the snowflakes in the photo but we used left
over plastic packaging to create this. Another fabulous
techcnique from Tim, I love that he does these tags and
shows us new ways to use things that we never would
have thought of.

So much for a quick post! My friend Michelle is arriving this
evening for a quick weekend visit so I won't be doing the
last 2 tags until next week. Thanks for making it this far :)

While I think all your tags are outstanding, I have to say, using the umbrella man instead of Frosty is a stroke of brilliance! I just love how he looks with his jaunty red scarf...he's probably thinking about getting out of that snowstorm. Great work!

All FABULOUS! Just FABULOUS! Love the blue reindeer on the first one, that is brilliant. So is using Brolley man on the last one, genius. Love that idea, way to think outside the box!

Looking good girl! I love your take on them. Kind of sad that it's over for a year now!
