12 TAGS OF CHRISTMAS 2011 - TAG 3

I've been taking my phone to bed with me for the last 3 nights in order to follow Mario's tweets and get an insight into what the next tag will contain. However, this morning I fell back to sleep after having a look around 7.15am and didn't wake until nearly an hour later. I quickly looked at Tim's blog and saw today's masterpiece. But doom and gloom struck me. I laid there wondering what on earth I could do to emulate today's tag.
I certainly don't have many of Tim's Xmas stamps let alone ones that match the embossing folders, that was the problem, matching a stamp to an embossing folder. The nearest are his snowman ones, but not much to colour with my limited re-inkers. I doubt a snowman would look good in orange or brown. So, I decided to use the pine trees.
After all my pondering, I really like the effect.

I love it. You did a great job improvising today's tag. I hope to get in my craft room soon. Have not had time to tackle and of the tags yet.

I agree with "unknown"--this tag jumped out at me from the all the thumb nails on Tim's post. You did a great job improvising. I had to do that too! Beautiful work!

It is indeed fabulous! Your creation is just as good as Tim's!!! I wish I had the time to play too! I did the first year, but keeping track of all the goodies he doles out, it gets expensive and when you don't use them they collect dust!! so, you have achieved a great tag with the minimal products!! Well done! Hugs always! G
