12 TAGS OF 2012 - SEPTEMBER

Oh Tim, you were a bit naughty this month. Has the typewriter mover and shaper die actually hit the UK yet??  Some of us like to make a replica tag to have a first class example of the techniques you use. I'm one of those folk. Ok, I accept that the real technique was the metal and the handy work on it which made it look like real metal 'stitched' together, so I forgive you.
I had some wonderful people, especially Anne, who offered both advice or a mocked up typewriter, thank you so much all of you, but I have decided that if I can't either obtain or afford a new crafty 'toy' then I MUST try something else from now on. With that said, I stamped an old jalopy and some words to replace the typewriter. Here, therefore, is my September version:

Hi Joanne, it has been available in the UK, I just opted for the large one as I thought it might be more useful, how many times have I used it? Once....I am sure I can think of more ways to use it again. Your tag is fabulous and I love the Jalopy, it goes perfectly! Really, really love it - a lot.....Crafty hugs, Anne x
