Tim Holtz's 12 Days Tags - Days 10, 11 and 12

Hello everyone, hope you're all OK and managing to get all your Christmas preparations done. I still haven't quite finished my cards as I'm very busy on the work front at the moment.
Many apologies to everyone in the Artyjen Splinter Group as I've got so much to do that I haven't been able to catch up on the commenting yet. Everyone's offerings look really fabulous and I think you've all done Tim proud.
I've got my last 3 tags here which I'm a bit iffy about as I didn't have the stuff needed again and due to work pressure my mojo is on a go slow. Here are my versions anyway:
Tag 10
This one is a bit bare as I forgot to put the holly on his hat - ooops! The background tag is the same as Tim's. I made the snowman with a pattern and stamped on a Papermania Christmas greeting. I added a ribbon scarf.
The packaging is embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder and ribbon and fibres finish off the tag.
Tag 11
This one is my interpretation as I didn't have anything that Tim used. The paper is by 7 Gypsies and I stamped on snowflakes from the Reindeer Flight stamp set in Pine Needles Distress ink. The tree is by Marianne Designs and I embossed it with Bottle embossing powder after cutting it out of grunge paper.
I added green twine and Woodware Fluffy Stuff plus a star brad.
The greeting is from the Papermania Classic Christmas 6 x 6 paper pack and I added a bow. Ribbon and fibres finish off the tag.
Tag 12
I again had nothing for this one so used Basic Grey Wassail paper for the background. I drew a bauble shape on grunge paper, cut it out, inked with Fired Brick then added embossing with Crystal powder. The letters are from the Vintage Market strip die and were painted white and embossed with the Crystal powder. I added green twine at the top.
I added a calendar downloaded free from the internet and inked with various Distress inks. I finished off with a layered flower.
I shall be linking this to Artyjen's Splinter Group and want to say a HUGE thanks to Sioux for organising this once again and also to everyone who has left me such lovely comments. It's been a real pleasure browsing through all the fabulous versions of this year's tags.
