Time for Tim's 12 Tags 2011 - Day 1

Well, like thousands of others, I was poised at my computer at 8am UK time to see the first Tag of the series - and we weren't disappointed! 

I had to wait to get home from work to play though, and improvise as I didn't have a lot of the product that Tim used.  Still that's part of the fun.... check the original here by Tim

and here is my attempt! 
I had as much trouble photographing it as I did making it, lol

The embossing folder (snowflakes) is cuttlebug as I don't have Tim's - the tag is coloured with iced spruce and evergreen bough.
I didn't have the Noel die or the festive leaves but I used the "wish" mover and shaper.

Made the banner with some tissue tape stuck to a piece of paper and coloured some flower trim instead of the pine cone die cut.
Maybe this angle is better!

Lets hope I do better for Day 2 - I can't afford to buy lots of new stuff for this challenge (although I did nearly order some stuff today...)

Thanls Tim (and Mario for the tweets of course) for the inspiration.

I much prefer to see the tags that are made using your own interpretation as you've done here. Much more creative. Love the frosty feeling this gives, especially that snowy background. Beautiful work Helen.

I agree with the others, you've done a fantastic job improvising and I love the idea of the tissue tape. I'm hoping to do some, but too busy to start until Saturday xx

I think a lot of people (TH included) like to see someone putting their own slant on the tags. This is beautiful Helen and I really do like it. Gorgeous pale blue.
Hugs, Neet
