12 Tags of Christmas - Day 3

Are you following the 12 tags of Christmas with Tim Holtz? I am and was so pleased to be able to find a bit of time last night to make this one, which is my take on day 3.

I didn't have all the supplies so I have improvised in places. For instance I don't have the tree stamp, so I drew the branch freehand.

I added some real leaves and dried heads from a Hydrangea in my garden........

..... and I just loved playing with the tissue tape to create the flower.

So if you look at Tim's fabulous tag against mine you can see some differences - but saying that I am really pleased with the outcome.

A big thankyou to everyone who has been sending me good wishes for my Mum. Test results are coming back and things seem to be more positive than we were led to believe - but saying that we don't yet have a diagnosis. Hopefully we will have more information on Monday. She is at last receiving food through a tube, but has had six and a half days without any sustenance at all. We just hope and pray she is able to build up her strength again.

Have a great weekend everyone and I hope you and your families are all well and looking forward to Christmas or other celebrations that are important to you at this time of year.
