its Friday!!!!!

Well this week didn't pan out as expected.....OH couldn't have his op as he's too poorly, fingers crossed he'll be able to have it next week.  We're a week closer to Christmas and for the first time in many a year, lost count, I've had to go and buy Christmas cards....I'm late doing everything and Christmas shopping, food and presents, hasn't even crossed my mind!! if things don't go to plan on Tuesday chances are OH will be in hospital on Christmas day so it might just be baked beans on toast for lunch!! so just as well I haven't bought anything in!! roflxx

anyway, its tag day again over at SCD and this week its Laura's turn to choose the theme and she's chosen:-

Christmas Characters...

anyone that knows me know that I just worship Tim Holtz and so here's my one and only contribution to his 12 day of tags this year:-


ok, so I had to improvise on some bits...the "facet" was off my daughters handbag charm that she chucked away and it glistened at me from the bin...its been on my desk since the summer waiting for a special moment! it didn't quite go to plan but its very pretty, the photograph hasn't picked it up very well.  I didn't have any of T!m's pearls either, so I got some head pins and beaded on little white and turquoise beads and some clear beads and made my own!! obviously didn't have the roll of pearls or bling so that was a bit of pearl ribbon and some lines of bling....I did, however, have his paper, pin and "wish" ticket!! roflxx the little snowflakes in the corner are from Tando creative....

so, thats my take on this weeks SCD piece - do pop on over to the blog and see what the others have created - there are some gorgeous pieces there...

Have a good weekend xx
