Tim Tag December 2014

The last tag of the year..... how time flies!  I know I keep saying this, but December's tag has to be my favourite of the whole year.  I stuck pretty much with the way Tim did his, mainly because of lack of time but I also had a few of the things he used, which makes a nice change from improvising!

I won't go into the 'how to' as Tim always does a wonderful step by step, which you can see HERE.
Here is a close up of the beautiful deer with just a hint of a sparkly coat.  I used a jingle bell instead of a silver bell, a different background stamp and embossing folder but everything else is pretty much the same as Tim used.
And of course, I did a second tag for my lovely friend Ali of Ali-Craft.

I know it is a very busy time of year but there is still time to enter our challenge at Inspiration Journal, which is 'Sing, Sing it Loud'.  There is, as always, a wonderful prize of $50 to spend at Inspiration Emporium for one lucky winner!  Just imagine, having $50 to spend in the New Year!  If you do decide to have a spending spree, you can use my code Redanne to get 10% off your whole order too.

Since this is my last post before Christmas I just wanted to thank you for all your very welcome visits during the year and to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.  You will never know how much your visits and comments mean to me, nor how much pleasure I get from visiting you and seeing your amazing creations.  You are an exceptionally talented lot of crafters!!  

Thank you each and every one of you!  Huge hugs, Anne xx

  29. Of course I love it, as always. Your improvisation always turns out splendidly, but I can imagine it's much easier (and no doubt faster) when you have the same supplies and don't have to hunt for 'something that works'. turned out gorgeous, & I love the coating on the deer, and his little red jingle. Great background too. Merry Christmas and thanks for all your visits & sweet comments over the year. Hope 2015 will be all that you wish it to be for you & your family. TFS & Hugs

  42. Hi there
    Just dropping back by to say thank you for the sweet comments on my String Cast Lamp. I was so nervous that no one would like it. Your comment brought such a huge relief to my nervous heart. Did I say that I loved your December Tim Tag yet? I think I might have on FB - but going to say it here again. Love it!

  43. Hi Anne. Happy New Year to you! Sorry I didn't see this before. The tag is gorgeous and that little bell is such a sweet touch. I might have a go at the Tim tags this year it always seems such fun and I suppose I could do them in my style - we'll see! Enjoy the weekend. Julia xx

  44. Hi Anne! It was so good to hear from you! Thank you so much for your very kind comment. Your Dec. Tim tag is beautiful! Love the frosty background and that sweet little deer with the festive wreath he is wearing. I hope you have a fabulous new year, Anne.

  45. Wonderful take on the tag....enjoyed my catch up so much. Thanks for all your inspiration this year Anne and the encouraging comments on my blog, it makes a real difference to a relatively new blogger. A belated Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year!! Ruth x

  46. Beautiful tag!
    And Happy New Year!! :)

  47. Lovely tag Anne and I adore the shade of blue you have used. Will try to remember to visit the Sizzix booth but don't be cross if I forget - I seem to have a different head that goes AWOL when I get to CHA.
    Happy New Year - sorry I am being brief and not visiting much but internet slow here and I am so busy.
    Happy New Year to you and yours
    Hugs, Neet xx
