Blogging friends Donna of Paper Crow and Dragonflies and Kathy of Inkin' it Up have started a fun and no stress challenge. As it turns out, Kathy challenged Donna who also made the same request of Kathy. Donna and Kathy asked me to join them in the fun and I could not resist, because I have never participated in any of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas! Now I made my tag yesterday and had no power, but I was glad that I had printed out Tim's instructions. Did not mean to case "Donna's" 25 embellishment and was quite shocked to see that this AM, but I was not going to remove a very well attached fragment! I think it took me as long to add the tinsel around the fragment as the background! This was fun to do and a great way to learn techniques, so come and play as this is open to everyone! Thanks Donna and Kathy for a year of fun!
Simon Says Stamp and Show has a challenge to use your "Newest Stamp.s" This may be old to some of you, but Tim Holtz Santa set is new and so is the music stamp from Stampendous, so we will be entering this there.
Important update: Our power was shut off in very frigid conditions for 9 hours and I brought my Fred (bird) and Molly (Dal) in my craft room with me, because that is the warmest room. Both were very well behaved, while I worked on this and found my missing Scrolls Work stamp and acrylic block. Now I am still missing a Vintage Photo ink pad, but that is an easy and less expensive fix! I am still loving this i-Rock tool and how wonderful that I did not need electricity to use it!
Have a wonderful day and remember that crafting and blogging are great ways to pass the time with no electricity!
