FWF FFC Becomes a Tag Junkie

I am going to admit I love trying new stuff. Which means I love following Claudine Hellmuth, Tim Holtz and Suze Weinberg. In case you don’t know already Tim Holtz is doing his yearly 12 tags of Christmas and just because I don’t celebrate Christmas doesn’t mean I enjoy the mess outta watching him and playing along.

Here’s my take on day 2, although I gotta say I had to make some of my stuff to look like Tim Holtz. I’ll explain at the end.

Stamps: All Unity Stamps – Simply Magical (Nov KOM), Rows of Yummies,
Ink: Versafine Black, Distress Ink Old Paper & Black Soot, Versamark
Paper: Manila Folder & MFT Perfect Panels
Extras: Antique Linens Distress Powder, Perfect Pearls, Red Smooch, Copics, Copper Metal Sheet, Chipboard, Sizzix Corners, Corner Distresser, Red Ribbon, SU Ticket Punch

OK, I didn’t have any tags & couldn’t find any at Walmart. What was I do do? I found out of what size they needed to be cut them out of manila folders & used my SU Ticket Punch to make them….VIOLA!! Then I didn’t have the Metal Corners he used, so I started thinking what did I have? I have metal sheets & a sizzix punch(?) for corners…AH HA!! I felt I was all good. I really like how it turned out.

The Friday Challenge for this month is also coming from Jimmi. She says that November & December are big months for EATING! and food which is why I used the rows of yummies on my card plus I thought it really played into the sentiment. Now ya gotta go see what the other girls made to make ya hungry today…
