It's the most wonderful time of the Tim Tag for December

It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
I'm looking forward to spending time with kids who are both back 
home from college ~ we have plans to decorate the tree & bake cookies!
Before I pack up the car and head back to Calgary, I wanted to share my take on Tim's tag.

Here are my tag bases I did. I wasn't sure which one I was going with at first but I 
decided to save the lucky clover argyle one for another project.
The tree is from an old Sizzix die I had and I think its called Christmas Tree #2. That was going to be the base for my next technique.

This is the same technique Tim used to make his wreath except I used my Holiday Greens Thinlit dies to make my tree.
I added a sentiment from the Occasions Small Talk and some splattered Picket Fence Distress Paint along with a few alcohol inked stars and some jute along the edges.
Another finished tag for 2015!

I am already so excited for 2016 and looking forward to more wonderful inspiration from Tim Holtz!
I wish you a very Merry Christmas & a happy and crafty new year!

Thank you so much for popping by my blog today.
 I hope I was able to inspire you even just a little bit! 

~~stay crafty~~
