10 done ..... only 2 more to go

Hello again!

It's time for Tag number 10 for Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas event.  I've had so much fun playing along this week ..... it's a shame it's all coming to an end (sigh!) What am I going to do next week?!! 

Today's tag is all about the Festive Gent .......

Tag #10
I love this Tim Holtz die!

He's been cut from black cardstock, and then his scarf has been cut again from a piece of red, and layered over the top.  I then sprinkled him with a little chunky white embossing powder, to give the look of falling snow

The background has been done using Distress Inks, and those favourite Clarity trees again, and I added a festive greeting to the bottom.

To add a bit more texture to the background I used a stencil along with some dimensional paste across the top and the bottom of the tag ....... more falling snow!

I attached the gent to the tag using foam pads and then added the cute little wreath.

Two more tags to go ....... they are made (yeah!!) I just need to take some pictures and then I'll share.
I've got until the 16th so no need to panic just yet.

Well that's me done I think.  Today's tag shared - check!  Dinner's out of the way, and the washing up done - check! .... ok dishwasher's loaded and switched on!  The little man is bathed and in bed - check!  not an easy task this evening I might add ........ he put up a bit of a fight!!

It was Super Hero Day at pre-school and I had the job of getting this one clean ....... Spiderman, no problem for SuperGran!!

I think it's time to relax, put my feet up and catch up with some TV.  Hubby's out this evening, wetting his work colleague's baby's head ....... so I won't be seeing him this side of midnight!!

Thanks for popping by ..... I'll be back tomorrow to share my last two tags with you.

Cheerio until then



  1. A wonderful tag Linda, love all the detail you've added. Cute little super hero too! Carol x

  2. Wonderful tag! I haven't seen that particular die, guess I'm gonna need to go on a look about for it. Love the little super hero! What a cutie!

  3. Hi Linda. Another stunning tag! Love the snowy scene with your hills and stamped trees. Makes for a fabulous background to show off the silhouette of the gent. Great texture from the falling snow and wreath. Your little guy is so adorable ... bet it was a bit of work to get the spider webs off his face :) Loll xx

  4. What a wonderful tag Linda - Love that die cut - so pretty with his red scarf and green wreath - the snowfall looks great on this!

  5. Love your tag, it may even be my favourite.... so wish I had bought that die now too, he looks amazing and I love that you added the Idea-ology wreath, it looks amazing! Anne xx

  6. Love this tag, too! I love that dye and the green wreath. Spiderman looks awesome too! Beautiful tag!!!

  7. Love this merry gent with the wreath! What a fantastic tag, Linda! And a super cute superhero!

  8. Well isn't this just another fabulous tag! I love your festive Victorian gent! His wreath is fabulous, love the scenery he is walking through too. Your grandson is adorable and I just love his make up for his "mask". I bet that was fun to clean off, yes, I think you deserve to put your feet up and relax! Hugs, Brenda
