Tim.... 6 - Kath....A Big Fat Zero

Morning folks...have you noticed that there has been not one single peep from me about a fabulous event that is taking place as we speak thousands of miles away on the other side of the pond....yes it's Timmie's 12 Tags of Christmas and the reason I've been silent is I'm having a major sulk and coming apart at the seams after promising myself last year that I would clear the decks and definitely find time to join in the fun....we are heading for Day 7 and I haven't got round to making one measly tag.   A quick look at the crafty list of things to do has put the scuppers on me tagging along this year.....it's a major "throwing my toys out of the pram" moment. And please don't tell me that you are joining in the fun because that could just send me over the edge.  Of course I continue to torture myself each and every morning by popping over for a peek...lots of tips and techniques and fabulous inspiration from my hero....this guy can walk on water as far as I'm concerned and does amazing things with inks...stamps and a few embellishments.
I've moved onto the next project on the crafty list using Timmietastic's Distress Inks and Alterations in a vain attempt to keep insanity out of the cubbyhole and how could I resist whipping up a quick tag with the left overs which bears absolutely no resemblance to any of Tim's tags so far but just humour me folks....us time beggars can't be choosers. And I am entering my quickly thrown together tag for this week's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show which is.....

HOLIDAY GREETING

but the good news is that the layout has turned up....you won't believe the daft places that I looked....I even had a peek in the freezer...well who knows what I get up to on these crazy crafty days but much to my relief it wasn't frozen to a crisp...eventually tracked it down inside the Fiskars Product catalogue....silly moi why didn't I think of looking there before I turned the whole house upside down and the naughty Fiskars parcel has eventually arrived in the cubbyhole.....perhaps a little sneaky peek will be on the cards tomorrow when I join all those lovely crafters for another snoopy day over at WOYWW 
Hugs Kath xxx

Oh Kath, hunny, I can almost feel your frustration from here! Well, I have to say, your tag is brilliant, even if it is "thrown together"! Brilliant as always. Hugs, Sxx

Kat said...

Gorgeous tag Kath, definitely doesn't look thrown together. I've looked at Tim's tags every day but I know there is no way I have time either. Lucky if I've got half my cards made! And I'm prevaricating about making a Sympathy card just now.

A fabulous tag Kath and it's a pity you haven't had time to do the whole batch! Glad you found your project too. I'm off to put an apology on my blog to your dear little Buddy - I woke up last night and what popped into my head - I haven't mentioned my win on my blog. Off to make amends now.

Love Lynda xxx

your tag is gorgeous and hey I'd far rather see your version of Timmie's Tags than exact replicas of what he's done.
have a great day

Wonderful tag Kath! :) The Design Team are really pleased that you joined us for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week - Thank you!

Doone said...

ooh Its a Brucie Snowman - love your tag Kath - who wants to see thousands of tags all made the same anyway???, whilst i understand there is joy in the making - where is the fun for a 'watcher'

I like yours 'cos it IS different

hope you come out of your strop soon :-)

Great tag Kath! Tims tags will be archived and you can do them at leisure then, after all, there's no fun if it's a chore anyway is it!

Jill W. said...

Tim would faint after seeing these!

BethanyR said...

Beautiful tag! I'm so happy that your LO turned up!

Lin said...

Glad to hear that all is well in the missing pieces category! I've been following along with Mister Tim's tags each day, but haven't found the time to play either.....just tucking them all away for a snow day! Love yours today, Kath!
