Yes, I'm still here.....

Like many, life definitely got in the way of my blog.  I can't promise I will be any more consistent, but would like to share with you what I am currently up to.
After watching for two years, I have finally decided to attempt to participate in t!m Holtz's "12 Tags of Christmas".  This is a personal challenge for me as I have been far too remiss in my art of late.  I have managed to complete the first three tags. and will begin with the day one tag:
I was able to closely mimic t!m's tag with this one.  I was "missing" a few of the dies he used, however it's the challenge to use what you have that was fun with this tag.

Now on to tag two:
I had a bit more of a challenge with this tag, but am very happy with the way it turned out.  I am really liking many of the newer products, and am finding the distress stains to be extremely versatile.

On to tag three:
I absolutely loved the technique t!m used for this tag, but alas, I had none of the stamps or embossing folders used, so what's a girl to do?????  Improvise!  I used the ink technique taught for this tag and created a tag which was similar in look and feel.

The tags are not the only things I have been up to, and I will be sharing those with you as well over the next few days.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit and thanks too for the comments.
