All Done!!!

Here I am with the 12th tag of The Twelve Tags Of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style  which is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique

I have really enjoyed this challenge, even though I came to it late! 

In my rush this morning I forgot to photograph this one in daylight and my lamp is broken, so with the help of the torch on hubby's phone and my flash I have done my best!
I loved the traditional colours in Linda's tag but could only lay my hands on my turquoise hessian(burlap)
The paper on the tag was the reverse of some paper I had used on one of this years cards.
I'm sure I have some vintage images somewhere but I really wanted to follow my imposter Robin card with a more realistic Robin on my Carabelle Studios stamp.
I used watercolour card onto which I smooshed some Candied Apple DI before stoping the image.
I added Evergreen Bough around the edges and onto part of the card.
The little bunch of berries and twigs was part of a napkin holder bought in a sale years ago.

I thought it would be good to see all the tags together 
A journal page next I think!!!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Yay, you made it! A fantastic collection - I'll need to do some catching up. I love this little robin postcard and the teal hessian adds great texture.

Well done on crossing the finish line! I love this little robin, and you have done such a wonderful job of watercoloring him/her (?) I had a little peeky at your collection of tags, but I'm going to be around to see each in detail asap, so I didn't want to spoil the surprise! Your story of your hubby helping to photo your card reminds me of my brother and sister in law. She is a seamstress, and had to finish a project. The power went out for an extended time (I can't remember which country they were living in at the time., so he set up his bicycle somehow to power her machine! Teamwork! Happy New Year to you and your husband! Thank you for your support and inspiration this year! Hugs!

Fantastic finish Chris! How fun it is to use up our leftovers. The red and blue look wonderful togther and that post card is such a wonderful piece of ephemera to include. Love that you included the little birdie - so sweet. I'm delighted you played along this year. Sorry I'm running a little behind schedule with closing out the challenge. I'll be back tonight with the winners post. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas.
