If you say it really carefully it does fit in with the song???
It is my pleasure to present you with a special Guest Tag by Eileen Goodwin - please see this link to her  blog  Eileens Crafty Zone. I would like to thank Eileen for agreeing to be a guest designer for little old me especially as I am normally so cheeky to her (and back at ya) and for sending me this gorgeous Tag - and in her own words this is how it was made :
"I ran the tag through my big shot in a Tim Holtz embossing folder.... applied Versamark to the raised area’s with my fingers! and added the powders, a bit at a time to the different areas.
I used the heat gun on each section... it looks good, I feel, when they run into each other!... then I swiped distress inks over the top of the whole tag and used a white pen to add highlight the letters".
So whats this all about? its a 12 Tags of Xmas Blog Hop here is what you do to join in:
If you have never done a blog hop before all you need to do is put a comment below saying "I have a Xmas Techniques Tag" along with a link to your Blog entry with a Techniques Tag. Then myself and other Blog Hoppers will visit your Blog and leave a comment saying "Merry Xmas". Then you in turn visit the other bloggers and do the same.
See you tomorrow!? Thank you Eileen.
