Twelve Tags – Day Nine, 200th Post, and a Giveaway


This is my 200th post!  I remember last December talking with one of my sisters saying I was thinking of starting a blog… in January I did… it’s been a great year in blogland!  For today’s tag I followed the background technique Tim Holtz shares today for Day 9 of the 12 Tags of Christmas.  I used evergreen bough, bundled sage, and gathered twigs distress inks.  The ornament is a Dina Wakley stamp that I attached with Tim’s hitch fastener and a 7 Gypsies #9 alpha paper clip.   The letters are Tim’s grungeboard inked with the gathered twigs and heat embossed.

Where Women Create is having a fantastic celebration right now with loads of artists featured, each of whom is sharing a giveaway.  They’ve encouraged readers to donate something to the cause and I’m putting up a brand new chipboard “Believe” album by Bo Bunny.  These books are great with their graduated letters… super fun for the holidays. To win, just leave a comment and be a follower. I’ll draw a winner on Monday and I’ll ship anywhere.

That’s it for now.  Don’t forget to check out all the eye candy at Where Women Create.

Hope you’re having  a great day!
