i'm back ....my take on Tim's tag November 2012

well i am hopefully back to the land of ..being well,
 blogging  (my poor neglected blog)
and being up to visiting my blog friends...
i have felt very guilty and apologise that i have not stopped by...
thanks to everyone who has sent kind wishes and left lovely comments..
i hope i am now over whatever horrible virus i have had ..
and hope to catch up and get back to full speed..
so thanks to followers new and old..i appreciate it!
so enough...onto my take on Tim's tag November 2012...
now i know this will come as a shock...as it did to my Hubbie..but I didn't have the stamps!?!
I know i was shocked too..so I did a festive spin.
Tims tag can be found here..and is as always fab...
and here is mine:
I tried hard to master all the techniques Tim shows in fab detail
but boy this was my fourth go at the trees....
the others..
well they are in the ssshhhhh........b i n.!!!
i used my new foliage die to cut festive foliage..
and coloured some idea-ology pearls for holly berries..
(think Tim may have done this last year...
sorry cannot remember when...)
i Love doing these tags ..and have learnt so many cool things..
and some i need to master...like the tree technique....
anyway , thanks for stopping
have a  fun and inky day!!!!


  1. ...sorry to hear you have been poorly Trace there are some very nasty bugs about at the mo but even illness does not stop you creating beautiful inspiring work, this tag is simply gorgeous, I love your colours and the way the tall trees pop out, very striking indeedy...MelXx

  2. Nice to have you back and hope you won't get any more horrible bugs.

    Terrific tag as always-love the bright red berries.

    Best wishes Chrissie xx

  3. Love your Christmas version of Tim's tag, I spend every month wishing I had the right stamps to do the challenge but miracles do sometimes happen ( like this month when I DID have them :-D)


  4. fantastic tag Trace - love the colours - beautiful layout - sorry to hear about you being poorly - hope you're back to health very soon! Hugs rachel xx

  5. The tag looks great! And no shock here; you must have something to wish for still with the coming days? Hugs, Gerrina

  6. Wonderful Trace, it's gorgeous, and I really love your holly and the gauze behind it. Hope you're feeling better buddy. Michelle x

  7. Hi Trace, I know how awful that bug was but so glad that you are feeling better now! I really love your take on Tim's tag, I don't have the stamp or wording either so may have to follow your lead and do something different too, just not sure what......... Take care. Hugs, Anne x

  8. Fabulous tag Trace...Love those colours...beautiful holly leaves...I am so glad you are feeling much better.. Take care... Hugs May x x x

  9. Lovely and creative tag Trace!

    greetings, Alie :-)

  10. Fantastic take on Tim's tag, mine is still on my to-do-list.

  11. This is fabulous Trace, a replication NOT if you know way I mean. Continue to take care so you recover fully.
    Hugs Brenda xxx

  12. Seems like the fourth go was the trick - they look great! Love your bluesy background too, and the bright berries against it. So glad to hear you're feeling slightly more yourself - what a long haul it's been... poor you. Thanks so much for your lovely comment over at Words and Pictures - as always so much appreciated, and - as one of my earliest supporters - I'm so grateful for your positive feedback and the inspiration I always find here - thank you!

  13. Gorgeous...it's perfect! I love your foliage as well!!! Fab take!!!

  14. Love your tag, Trace! I think those trees look great! Glad you are feeling better :)

  15. I LOVE (no, that's not strong enough) ADORE your tag Trace. Perfect background/colours/trees and that holly is to die for (no pun intended!) What a relief you didn't have the stamps, as we wouldn't have been treated to this beautiful piece otherwise.
    Hope you are back on your feet/builderless/not so busy very soon. Hugs, Buttons x

  16. I love how your trees came out on your tag! And the holly leaves are just gorgeous!!

  17. Love your tag but then again I love everything you do!!
