So, I'm not Tim Holtz...

I REALIZE that! REALLY....{!}

But man, oh, man! I can't get over what a delight it has been, completing my "Twelve Tags of Tim." I have to apologize for the redundancy, as I mentioned following my last tag. For that reason, I'm going to just throw down my final three tags... And then I'll try to put it all to bed....

Until NEXT year.... heh heh heh...

Fun, fun and F-U-N-N-E-R! That's what I have to say about THAT!!!!! {Sorry, English teachers!}

If you find yourself with a little extra time on your hands,
and perhaps an emotional load that's a bit heavy....

I really and truly MUST recommend that you look up that old Tim fellow...
and his ANY of his most recent {or any year!} Twelve Tags of Christmas... PICK one!
And then just make it! Using ANYTHING you've got - no stressing over "right or wrong!"
This whole process was TRULY therapy for me. Thank you for indulging me!

SO, now that THAT'S done... CHALLENGE TIME, babies!

And, I REALLY am, "tickled PINK!" for a whole bunch of reasons!
The FIRST reason is because I'm throwing in some color work
for my dear friends at the Just Us GIRLS challenge! Check it!!!

Aren't these colors BEAUTIOUS! WAIT until you see what the JUGS DT has done!

And what's a fun color combo, without a GREAT sketch!?!
Hellooooooooo... calling CARD PATTERNS!
How YOU doin'?

It's been TOO lonnnnngggggg since I've had some time for multi-challenge FUN!
So, babies - THIS was my day! {I know! It WAS a good day!}

Oh, FRIENDS - I REALLY am tickled PINK! But MORE on that.... another day! {Yipeeeee!} You'll have to stay tuned for my EXCITING news! Eeeeeek! For now, I'll just have to THANK YOU, once again...... I ADORE the fact that you took some of your precious time to visit my creative spot here in BLOGLAND! It REALLY, really makes me a happy girrrrl! Here's hoping you've got YOUR happy onnnnnnnn! Take care, friends!

OK, so maybe you're not Tim Holtz, but you can be Timalina, and after these fabby tags you've created, you ARE Timalina!! LOL They're just gorgeous girl! Every detail is amazing and congratulations for giving that a shot! I love to see Tim's tags every year, but rarely ever try making my own. You've inspired me now:)
Your challenge card is so pretty and I love the color combo! The sky is done beautifully!
I'm so sorry that you've recently lost your precious fur baby, but if the card I made brought you comfort, then that's a good thing! You need to take time to grieve, that's perfectly natural and I'm sending you big {{{hugs}}}
