Tim's 12 Tags of 2015 December.

Yay! I did it! A whole year of Tim tags!
I love using fabric for stamping but I have never used stencils - I will from now on!
The details and Tim's tutorial are here.

My tag is not a lot like Tim's tag, although I have used some of the great ideas!
As Christmas is over I went for a New Year theme and used the clockwork stencil and my favourite new colour - Ground Espresso.
I don't have any Tim punches(yet!) but I do have some little branches in die form that I bought from the Rowan Tree in Carnforth just before Christmas - unused until today. As I cut them (using brown, gold and green foil card) I saw snowflake shapes so instead of following Tim's shape I made a layered snowflake with a silver snowflake shape on the top of the layers. A little wooden snowflake dabbed with Brushed Pewter stain and the words to hail in the New Year. I have quite a lot of things coming up at the start of the year so the chit chat words seemed apt!
The ribbon is from some crackers we had at Christmas - slightly trimmed to fit.

I would also like to link to

Thanks for looking, Chris

Ooh, that's wonderful! I don't think it matters at all that it's different from the original - it's clearly inspired by it, and very inspiring in itself too.

Lovely take on Tim's tag using a snowflake theme! I love how you made your snowflake using branches! Great thought to use the clock stencil, too--it looks so rich! Congrats on getting them all done! Me, too, for the first year! Hugs!
