12 Tags!






Hi ya gang ;0) how are you all? I haven't been about much. But today is a day full of craft  as I have some catching up to do. Welcome to all the new followers so nice to have you along. Oh and a big thank you to all my regular commenter's you are all the bomb! I am well and crafting big time now lol I have only done one Christmas card so I had better pull my finger out! And I may use some inspiration for good ol' Timmy! I did the 12 tags for the first time last year and I had such fun I thought I would get stuck in again this year. However, I am a wee bit behind oops! So here is my version of Tim's 1st tag I hope you like this version lol I have lots of crafty goodies but I couldn't possibly have everything Timmy even though I would love to lol.


Here is my close up! I haven't got any thing housey apart from this bird house and  made a robin as well (this s clearly not a robin though lol) I haven't got many ink refills (four) so I couldn't do the stamp the way tim did. However, I Will be buying a few more it's a really good technique isn't it? Pop along to Tim's blog if you want to know more details.


Here I had a go at the foam/ink stamp technique and I have to say I really like the idea of getting lots more ink refills lol I also used some scrap paper and a fragment instead of a bird! I actually think it's more fun putting your own bit's & bob's in as this tag is now unique to me and that is one of the reasons I love hand made goods. Let me know if your joining in. I know my fellow DT friend Sioux is also running the 12 tags along side Tim's so you have a chance of more prizes, so pop along there if you can. Well that's enough from me I have more craft to do lol. Love Dawn xx

I think your tag is terrific, even if you don't have all of Tim's products. That birdhouse is fantastic and I love the textured snow you have applied. It's the perfect finishing touch! So happy you could join in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
