Here's Day 7 and it's an actual tag this time. I know I skipped days 4, 5, and 6 and I didn't make an ATC this time. That's just where my creativity went today. In case you haven't been around this week, I'm working on Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas tutorials. I loved making this one. I don't have a white paint dauber, so I used silver for this and I like the silver and gold together. It was like magic when I got to the part where I wiped away the ink from the paint. Seriously, even the black ink wiped off. So cool. I suppose you could get the same look by stamping with paint at the end, but the magic part was worth it. This santa image is by Paper Inspirations. I love how vintage he feels. I have no idea about the purple, I just had to do it. I fell in love with purple on the first day's ATC and had to go there again. Who knew purple worked for Christmas. It just does.
We have another snow day today. There was absolutely no shoveling done yesterday. I forgot about Kyle's cast. Guess I haven't mentioned it here, but he broke his hand in the midst of the whole surgery thing with my mom. Anyways he has a cast on the last two fingers of his right hand up to the elbow. The only good part about the whole deal for him is he can't shovel snow, can't get it wet and can't manuever a shovel and follow the docs orders at the same time. I'm fighting off a bug of some kind, so I really don't feel up to shoveling either. We're snowed in for now. Not such a bad thing. I may hire Kyle's friends to shovel for me later after they get their own place dug out. I guess we'll just have to make more hot chocolate and watch another movie. Enjoy the view below. That's what we see off our back deck. Not too shabby.
