Day 6 Tim tag

I started my day 6 tag last evening, but finished it this morning. This is my version of Tim Holtz's day 6 tag to share with all of you.
First off, I don't have any reindeer rubber stamps, or dies to cut out a reindeer shape. So, after thinking about what I could use, I decided on a snow/snowman themed tag. For some reason on my finished tags the white snow created with a rubber stamp and Adirondacks snow white acrylic paint dabber don't end up showing up when I take a photo of my finished tags. I think the reason is that the rubber stamp I am using has really small dots on the surface, whereas the stamp Tim uses has bigger surface areas on his dotted stamp. I bought the SNOW scatterable confetti at WalMart.  I originally bought the package to use on holiday cards, but I think the piece worked out great for my tag.  Tree stamp is by G Rated, and the snowman is a scrapbook sticker. The iridescent snowflakes were something I've had for years, but the small clear snowflake was something I picked up in Michael's or AC Moore. I used a strand of small iridescent beads with a beaded pearl snowflake accent for my tag fibers. The Martha Stewart course crystal glitter on the bottom of the tag really doesn't show up in this photo.

I like how this tag went together.  Now, to day 7 tag.
Have a wonderful day. I have errands to run, but it is frigid outside, so I am in no hurry to go outside. :-) elaine signature3
P.S...figures...When I went to Tim's blog this morning, his day 10 tag has a snowman on it. :-) Oh well!
I almost used palm trees with a stamped image of Santa with a pack of stamping supplies on his back when I first started thinking about creating this tag.

I absolutely love your tag - snowmen are my favorite, and your tag is absolutely delightful! There's never too many snowmen - especially now! Thanks for sharing.

I think your snowman is positively adorable, and you really can't have too many of them this time of year, can you?
Isn't this fun?! But what will we do on December 13? LOL! Laundry maybe?
