My First 12 Tags of Christmas!

This is my second year following Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas, but my first tag I actually made! I've used the techniques he has shown in the past for other projects, but this year I wanted to actually join in, and makes some of his tags. And he also put a linky tool in his posts so you can link your tag to his blog. How cool is that?! My tag follows along pretty close. The EF is a Sizzix one by Basic Grey, sentiment was cut from my Cricut, I already had the pinecone die, and the mini holly leaf die. My pinecones turned out pretty good this time around, and look much better with a little paint and stickles on them. My paper is Coordinations and DCWV. Some beads from my stash, and true seam binding for the ribbon. I used the 2 new seasonal DI inks, Iced Spruce and Evergreen Bough. I had fun making this tag, although it took almost 2 hours! My husband asks me sometimes what I do all day, and if I get bored. He has no idea how long it takes to paper craft, and probably will never get it, but that's fine. I am more than happy to be in my craft room passing the hours by! It's a fantastic 'job' to have!!! Thank you for looking in!.......................................................Pam

Beautiful tag I am glad the link is there too this year. This is my second year of following the tags - I haven't had time make one yet, but love seeing what others can do with what they already own.
