12 Tags of 2015 : Happy Christmas!

What better way than to wish all my lovely blogging followers and friends a happy Christmas by sharing my take on Tim's wonderful December tag.

As usual all the details for Tim's tag are HERE and it won't take you a nano second to realise that mine is a little different! 

With no hessian I turned to vintage linen (another piece from one of my mother's unstarted linen embroideries) and I wanted a softer look so I went for Evergreen Bough instead of Fired Brick.

This really is a fabulous technique and one I must remember to use again!

The ribbon was made using the Stampin Up Ribbon Punch but got a TH make-over with some inks and distressing! I didn't have any bells or baubles small enough so used three very small tattered florals from the Tattered Florals Garland die. And … … I must remember to buy one of Tim's splatter brushes in the New Year - some rather unfortunate blobs!

Some creative fun in the midst of the last bits and pieces of Christmas.

And now all is done and ready … just to clear up the kitchen after Terry has made the sausage rolls and carrot cake - bless him! He has already made fudge, peppermint creams and ginger biscuits.

So it just remains for me to wish you all a very happy, peaceful and cozy Christmas wherever you are and whoever you are with.

Love and hugs

Love the soft green in the background - and the pretty flowery garland - a lovely take on the December tag, Jennie, especially with that beautiful vintage linen as the base.

Wishing you and yours a peaceful and joyous festive season!

Just saw this on Pinterest Jennie. It's really beautiful and I love the fact that you've used some of your Mum's linen in the background. Julia xx
