It's Tim Time!!!

So...did you all go and visit Tim's blog last week??!! No, then get on over there because he has started the 12 Tags of Christmas! Yippee and Ya-Hooie!! I'm so excited about the 12 Tags!! This is my third year joining Tim and I can't wait to see what he has in store for the next week! And guess what? I had to re-create Tim's Day 1 tag..I know, you're not surprised, are you? Well...I did make one change this year. I opted to create cards instead of a tags this year...just for a little something different.
This tag was quite a creation! A whole lot of glue, distressing, sanding, die cutting, and glitter! I believe that my entire room, and perhaps my entire person, is covered in fabulous silver glitter! Love it! This was an involved project...lots of steps and time required but the end result is amazing! Really beautiful in person!! See Tim's blog for detailed instructions.

So...I have a confession...since I have been working at a scrapbook store, Wholly Scrap!, I'm able to pick up some of the exact supplies that Tim uses on his tags (oh, it's so bad!!) so my first card is almost identical to his tag. But...that won't be the case for the rest of the days. My favorite part of Tim's tags is the challenge to re-create a card or tag using the techniques that he uses, not necessarily uses all of the products that he uses. And I can't wait to share the next few tags so check back in each day for more!!

Enjoy today's card!

Love your recreation of the tag into a card. And the silver glitter looks WOW in the photo so I can only imagine it's full sparkle impact in real life!
