Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas Day 2 (for me) & A 31 Year Old Card In The Making!


I finished my 2nd Tim Holtz tag for his 12 tags of Christmas...he is on day 10 now...I have so much catching up to do!  Again I struggled with not having everything I needed...I have a small list going for after Christmas to maybe splurge on!  I didn't like it at all last night, but after walking away from it, I liked it a bit better this morning!

My second thing to share and most important to me is a card I made for my oldest son's birthday this month!  When he was in first grade, his class drew pictures to put in a weekly paper of ads, each child had a business that their drawing was put with....he will be 37 this month, so that is how old this picture is on the front, I love it, it has yellowed with age and is perfect in my eyes just as it is....I made a copy of it on my printer on cardstock to keep the original intact!  I am sure he is going to get a big smile out of this....but look at all the detail he has in this drawing for a   first grader.......I have been bugging him to start his own stamp line, and he is interested but how the heck do you even start??  He has alot of drawing talent...no schooling for it, it all just comes natural.....
