Time for Tim's 12 Tags 2011 - Day 12

It's the final day - boooo!  Tim's Tags has reached day 12 - and boy does he deserve a rest! Catch his season finale here - it is another cracker!!

For the final day, Tim is using tissue wrap - which I don't have - his dwellings  & vintage lace dies - ditto - the charlotte doll - double ditto.... hmmmm Helen needs to get her thinking cap on!!

So, (writing slowly so the camera battery recharges, can't take any pics just yet, lol) I stamped my own tissue paper, cut my own "vintage dwelling" by hand from grungepaper (run out of grungeboard) and this was the result....


Had to use some more of my wired ribbon instead of tinsel trimming, hand cut a piece of silver card instead of the lace trim using a pair of decorative scissors)  (thanks so much to Eileen for that tip, wouldn't have thought of that!)  Hand scrunched a flower (used the largest tattered floral die flower and some more of the hand stamped music tissue paper) and sewed it together before fixing it to the tag.

Found a little - too little really - chip Santa for the dwelling - and made the 25 in the same way as the wish per Tim's instructions.
The silver snowflake at the top is from that cheapo £1 shop decoration I got the other day.
It's been a blast - Tim thank you so much for another fabulous start to December - I don't know about you, but I'M ready for a rest!!! Thanks too to Mario for your BTS tweets and on FB - it's been a great way to start the day for the last 12 days. You guys ROCK.  (realised after I'd loaded the tag to Tim;s blog, I'd forgotten the row of glitter dots round the tag - so this is a quick re-do!!
Thank goodness I have finished my Christmas cards, I feel a break from crafting coming on.....or maybe not!
