t!m's No. 2

Twelve days tag that is!! I have religiously printed off every single one of the Twelve Tags from his lordship's blog every year and saved them all in a lever arch file (having to start a new one this year as the other one is too full!), but this is the first time I have actually done one!!!  I have used the techniques and tips but have never actually made one.  So.... drum roll please... here is my take on day 2 of The Twelve Tags of Christmas 2010:

I didn't actually have any of the right stamps, or the right DI's (other than Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain), but hey, there's a branch and a greeting and a flourish and a bird!! What's more, the greeting and the flourish are actually t!m stamps...  just not the right ones.  I flicked some water on the tag after I blended the background DI's just because I like it that way, and I mounted the finished tag onto a card because I felt like it.
I am having a snow day at home today :) Yesterday I made it in to the office (nobody else did!) and collected some work to do at home (which, as you can see, I am not doing LOL) then set off for home.  I got on a train at Surbiton at 12.46pm for the journey to Clapham Junction which usually takes 15minutes.  The train got to Clapham Junction at 14.48!!! 2 hours!! Worse part? No loo on the train.  Now bear in mind I am a 51 year old woman who has given birth 3 times and had pelvic radiotherapy and brachiotherapy for cervical cancer.... bladder control is not in my skill set any longer! Fortunately Clapham Junction has a large deparment store close to the station with decent toilet facilities so that was where I headed as soon as I got off the train! No way am I attempting to get in today.... not without a catheter anyway, lol.
Hope everyone is safe and warm today!

I love your tag, Kay and glad to see you are using your snow day productively! I kept myself off again today - the cough is the worst bit now, but I am going to have to brave the icy streets tomorrow to get some shopping - going to have to start rationing the cups of tea soon, milk is running low! Hope the shops have some.
