"12 tags of christmas" and give-away winners....

Morning folks...the cubbyhole crew are battening down the hatches because the weather has turned decidedly wintry in my neck of the woods..a flittering of snow overnight so I don't feel in the least bit guilty about having another snuggly warm day in the cubbyhole...hubby is off out today so The Furry Boy and his Mum will be getting stuck into Tag 4 for Timmie's "12 Tags of Christmas".
But first let's cut to the chase and announce the winners of the Stamp Give-Aways...
Give-Away 1
will be winging it's way to....
and Give-Away 2
will be popping through this person's letterbox
just as soon as you e-mail me with your addresses girls.
Be warned this is one of those lots of pic posts...so it may be an idea to pop the kettle on and get comfy...OK we are well and truly settled into Timmie tag mode now and having loads of fun but before I fall way behind with the posting...it's time to catch up with tags 2 and 3...could The Maestro top his stunning Tag on day one...oh yeah he's pulled even more fantastic techniques out of the bag.  I've been up since silly o'clock uploading the pics and writing this post so I take my hat off to The King of All Things Holtziness for his mammoth blog posts along with that most onerous of chores...linking up all the products and all to be done once the tag's in the bag. The tags are not made in advance but just a few hours before it all goes live...in his own words "it helps his creativity"...crikey no pressure then...blind cubbyhole panic are the words that spring to mind. 
the cubbyhole version...



and the cubbyhole version...



I haven't linked up the products I've used because I've tried where possible to use the same stuff but with different colourways and even if you haven't got time to join in the fun this year...it's well worth popping over each and every day to check out all the different techniques used on each tag.   Think about it folks...it's like having 12 days of  Timmie technique packed workshops and it's absolutely free...he is so generous with his time and talent. 
But I have a hot date with Tag 4 so it's time to wrap up cosy and warm for our early morning sprint and I'll be keeping The Furry Boy on his toes...it's far too cold for dithering about sniffing every blade of grass within a 5 mile radius...see you all tomorrow and hang onto your galluses folks...I have managed to sneak in a challenge card too.

they're both gorgeous - and to be honest I think I prefer your colourway on tag #3
I so wish I could get playing - but am up early, and hopefully get this OU stuff out of the way today

A.b.s.o.l.u.t.e.l.y. GORGEOUS! LOVE the bright red against the cool background; the holly berries, the colored ribbons and the lovely pearl (brads?) at the bottom. I also LOVE the blue and gold with the trees, pearls and snowflake charm. You are so incredibly talented and I so look forward to your blog each and everyday. At least art-wise, we speak exactly the same language. Now back to my reruns of Monarch of the Glen on Netflix. Thanks again for all of your inspiration!

Love your use of the red & green on Tag 2 & especially the way you picked out those tine hints of pale green in the holly leaves across the top with the pearl brads along the bottom. The little bell around his neck with the tag of "Wander" is just delightful. Can you tell I've fallen for your tag?? Tag 3 is striking indeed with the colourway. Driving sideways wet stuff here - not quite freezing yet. Enjoy your tagging.

Gorgeous tags Kath. Definitely as fabulous as Tim's. I check out Tim's blog every day but I've no time to play!

Kath - you make me laugh every day! Love your version of Tim's tags - you go, girl! Lots of creativity coming from the cubbyhole - would enjoy a peek at that space sometime! I agree with you on the furry boy walk too - no time for dithering over each blade of grass - brrrrr! Have a great day and cheerio!
