12 Days of Christmas Tags

Day 9

My DH has shared his man flu which he had last week and Friday I went down with it so have spent a miserable few days moping around feeling very sorry for myself.......... feeling a little better today so thought I would share with you day 9 Tag.
When this tag was posted my thoughts turned to how to make a rosette by hand  and while I was still thinking about all the scoring and such like Postie arrived with my Tim Holtz Alterations Rosette Die -  see me do dance around the hall  Whooooo Hooooo sent hot post from Wendy at The Stamp Attic, thank you thank you thank you, I couldn't believe my eyes as I have been waiting patiently (not) for the stock to arrive in UK.
So rushed into my room of craft and got cutting I love how easy it is to make a rosette and I also used Vintage Market Die for the Word Noel, I used lace as believe it or not I couldn't find a single piece of tinsel in this old house of mine!!!!!!
The last few days of tags have been spectacular and I am sorry today is the last day, will try to catch up with the last three during all the Christmas madness. 

Thanks to everyone who has commented on my blog I really do appreciate your comments and in such a busy time too.  I will try and leave as many comments as time allows but to all you 12 days of taggers I think your art is fantastic and there are some great interpretations of Tim's Tags  over at  ArtyJen pop over and feast your eyes on some fantastic tags.

Bye for now


  1. I had to hand fold mine - measuring the creases was a right pain! But have ordered the die now.... Your tag looks fabulous. Hope you are better soon.

  2. Your Tag looks wonderful, great bit of luck that your die arrived the same day! I had to do mine by hand, but I loved every minute!
