Tim's Tags for 2012

Hi Folks,

Well, I'm going for it!  For a while now I have been wanting to enter Tim's 12 Tags for 2012, but for various reasons I have 'chickened out' each month,  however, last minute - I have made my tag!!
This is a strange feeling - I know we all put our cards out there and hope for 'nice' comments, but this time I feel as if I really am up for show and this might not be good enough - so if you are reading this, please be gentle!
I don't have a Melting pot, so I used UTEE in a foil container and heated from underneath and dipped  the flowers, you have to be quick as the UTEE cools quickly!
Didn't have any wooden bobbins, so  the spool is die cut, and a paperclip for the hanger!
I don't think its too bad, but what do you think?

I am also entering this into:
  Everybody Art - Anything but a card
  Crafty Cardmakers - Distress It

I would like to say 'hello' to my new followers, and 'thank you' for choosing to follow my blog,  I hope it continues to be of interest to you.

That's it for now, and thanks for looking

Avril xx
