Twelve tags of Christmas

Tim Holtz's twelve tags of Christmas has just started again.  Now I have never tried to do any of them before but after spending all afternoon trying to catch up on Christmas cards etc I felt like trying something different.
This is my tongue in cheek take on the tag !  I did not have any of the things he has used so just improvised with what I had to hand. The house is a chipboard shape from Crafty Individuals, coloured with walnut stain DI, put through the cuttlebug  with distressed stripes folder and sanded, the fence is also a CI chipboard shape,wreath made with punched holly leaves,tree a die cut, ticket stamped and inked and a snowflake brad at the top,  the snow is flower soft polar white ,not much like the original and it did not take too long to make
and the main thing is I enjoyed making it.
