Tim Holtz 12 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 12

Well everyone, join me in a hug and a sob that Tim Holtz' 12 Days of Christmas Tags are over.  On the other hand I'm relieved because this has been so intense; creating a project that takes anywhere from 1 1/2 hours to over 3 hours EVERY DAY - but I made it!  I learned SO MUCH doing this, I really feel as if my 'craft room' as been turned into a 'studio'.  Please check out all the other tags, as well as Tim's of course, as I'm sure you will be so inspired.  Some tags I liked more than others, some were easier to create, and some were really difficult.  Some techniques I couldn't do, and some I couldn't even fake. 

I'm glad I did it, and I had lots of fun too with Tim's business manager Mario on Twitter (@mariojrossi) for his Behind the Scenes (BTS) tweeing of the #12tags.  I even won a prize from commenting on Tim's blog - a $25 gift certificate to Inspiration Emporium!  Then I also won another prize - Tim's brand new 2012CHA stamps - randomly selected from Ted Cutts (of Stampers Anonymous fame), just for following him on Twitter (@tedcutts)!  Also, I now realized that I have 100 followers, so I am forever grateful (and need to think of something special to do!?)
Needless to say, I'm ecstatic :-D

I really hope y'all had just as much fun as I did with the 12 Days of Christmas Tags that Tim Holtz has created.  I might create some of the other tags that Tim's friends created on the days that they were visiting, or some of his own bonus tags.  Do you have a favorite tag?? I've got a couple, I think I will have to share those again as a recap with you.  Or I might take a really long nap.
