Sheer Bliss!!!!

Hello everyone. How has your weekend been? I've had THE BEST weekend for a very long time. I had the luxury of some spare time all to myself - what bliss! So I spent some of that time crafting for pleasure and tagging along with the Tim Holtz 12 days of Christmas. Ha Ha...Tagging - Tag - get it? ((GROAN)).

As this is the first time that I've come across this event (I know - it's amazing that someone could have their head so far in the sand that they miss this!), I thought I'd give it a go and just try to emulate one of the tags Tim has done - just to learn the techniques. Well - FOUR tags down (will be posting the others during the coming week) and I am totally smitten. This one is Day 4's tag.

Even my hubby remarked:
"Those are a bit posh, aren't they? We'll have to use them again next year - make sure you don't write on them!"
Men! Honestly!

We get a whole month to post our tags, so I think I'll do one of each "a la Tim" and then go back and create a few of my own in some of the different styles over the Christmas break - yes...that is how much fun it is to make these tags.

While I'm here I'd like to enter this into a couple of challenges:
Sir Stampalot - Bingo (Pearls, Stickles, Ribbon)
Let's Ink It Up - Christmas Projects
Come and get it challenge - Anything Christmas
Craft Your Days Away - Buttons or Bows
One Stop Crafts - Let it Snow.

Thanks so much for looking,
Sharon xx
