Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas #2

So...does anyone know how really dark and scary downtown Saint Petersburg is at 5:30 in the morning???  Especially when looking out the door, the tallest man ever walks by and blocks what little light there was from the other buildings?????  I do.  Scarrrrry.

So, here's Tag #2.  Really cute, and not quite as labor intensive as Tag #1.  I love the little wreath around the deer's neck.  Too cute.  I made the store's copy this morning and going back tonight to make my personal tag.  See you at Whim So Doodle!

Hello Everyhone! Hope it's warm where you are!! I love KennyK Digital Stamps. I created this card for the Dec. 5 posting of 12 Days Of Christmas Jolly Blogger...hope you all enjoy~

Day 2
So...damn...I am late.  Couldn't be in two places at once this morning, so my choice was the one that paid is my Dec. 3 posting for the 12 Days Of Christmas Jolly Blogger hosted by the Smeared and Smudged - Alternative, Vintage, and Gothic Art Rubber Stamping website!   Hope you enjoy!!

Day 3
One of my favorite holiday stamps of all simple, but so elegant.  Love my Stampin Up ribbons...all of them.  Embossed in gold, double mounted and on it's way to my friend in her Christmas package.  Thanks for coming and checking out the first posting for the12 Days Of Christmas Jolly Blogger hosted by the
Smeared and Smudged - Alternative, Vintage, and Gothic Art Rubber Stamping website!  You should go check the site's rather a fun place to hang out for a while. 

Day 4
Hello Everyhone!'s freezing here in St. Petersburg today...must be at least 50 below zero!!!  Actually, it's 56 above zero, but it's still freezing for me!!! I love Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas, and was so inspired by this little deer.  He's so sweet.  I created this card for the Dec. 7 posting of 12 Days Of Christmas Jolly Blogger and taught the techiques to my peeps at Bayfront Hospital...hope you all enjoy~

Day 4

Day 4

Hello Everyhone! You'll gather by my blog that I am a big Tim fan, and wanted to share this pocket watch that I created for the holidays.  It's rather sweet, and I love anything vintage.  Enjoy!

Day 5
Yes.  I am behind again.  But, as they say (who ever they are):  better to be late than no to be.  So, here is my project for this day.  Paintshop Pro and one of my favorite digital stamps Angelica Prays.  She is digitally colored in Paintshop Pro. 

Day 6
Okay.  Now I am caught up, and hoping to stay that way.  Give me Graphic 45 paper and I am in heaven.  Check out my advent box...loved making it...
