Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas 2011 - Day Four

This morning when I woke up and went to Tim's blog for today's tag, I was so excited that I had most everything!  Well not having "ANY" of the Distress Stains, made this the real challenge.  My sweet DH, took a run to Michael's for me, but none were to be had!  Yesterday out of no where I decided it would be a good day to get a sore throat, which during the night became increasingly sore and this AM, full blown sore!  Between not feeling super and waiting for things to dry, I had to figure out how to do a background.  I so want some of those stains!!  Don't you just love how Mr. Holtz gives such great instructions and pictures?  How much time he devotes to us and I am sure it pays off for him and deservedly so!  Here is my tag for "Day Four, which will be linked at Inspiration Emporium."

To do my background, I pulled out some Delta Gleams with a Pearl Finish.  I thinned this out three little areas with water, left one area white, added one drop each of Weathered Wood and Tumbled Glass to the remaining!  From that point I followed Mr. Holtz steps!  For my stamped images I went with Snow Cap and Silver Dabbers.  I cut out a separate hat and added Black Stickles and then a little Glossy Accents and some red and white seed beads!  My use of seed beads came from adoring Lucy's many gorgeous projects!!  I was all done and took my photos, showed the tag to my DH and his brilliant observation was noticing the lack of an eye!  He said that the blogging world would be talking about me if I did not have an eye!  So it was that an eye was added!  I actually had planned on that, but in my fog today, I forgot!  So there you have it!

Hope you all are having as much fun as I am!  So happy that you stopped by for a visit!

You poor thing. Now you are welcome to keep it to yourself, please do not go and share that sore throat. At this time of the year it is common for me to have one and usually have no voice for a few weeks (hey, no jokes about that being a good thing!!!)
This tag you created brings such joy.
Now go and rest up, take some vitamins and take good care.
Wishes
Lynne
