12 Tags...Day 1

Hello all! I'm a little behind on posting my tags because I finished day 1 after it was already dark (which happens at about 4 in the afternoon now!) and so I couldn't take photos. Like nearly everyone else I was up late at night on Wednesday waiting anxiously for midnight and the first post of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas. This is one of the few different-time-zones situations where the West Coast doesn't get totally screwed. (Usually things are done Eastern time and we're just left to deal with the odd hour). It was actually midnight my time and I didn't have to be up at 3 AM like some poor folks. Anyway, I was really in quite a state by the time it posted...and it was so gorgeous! And I was super excited because I realized I had most of the needed supplies! Then a could hardly sleep because my mind was swimming with ideas. =) Finally in the morning I got up and had barely finished my coffee before I was in the craft room making this:



As you can see I didn't have the Noel die so I used my Reindeer Flight die instead. The silver glitter I used is actually tinsel glitter (I didn't have any regular glitter in silver) so he looks kind of fuzzy. =) And he is a HE - it's hard to see but I did the awesome trick Tim showed us last year to add antlers to my reindeer. The only other thing I didn't have was the Tattered Banners die (just came in the mail today-a day too late!) but it was easy enough to just cut one out.


Thanks for looking! I hope you're having as much fun as I am following Tim's posts and getting in the holiday spirit!
