The last of the 12 days of Christmas Smeared and Smudged style.

Welcome to the last of the 12 days of Christmas... where has
December gone?Am i ready for the big day...? I doubt i'd be
ready if Christmas was prosponed til july.
Todays project is a wreath that i have mad ....pinecones.... fake greenery.... bits and bright orange silk flowers..... and a little tag that now needs to be laminated, but i took the photos before i did it as i always mess up and get a lot of blur.
The stamp on the tag is from SMEARED INK.... FAES.....coloured with pencils....i also used a border stamp from the same set and stamped in white ink as well as black around the edges of both sides of the tag. The word memories on the reverse is TIM HOLTZ....and i shadow stamped it.

This project is the dearest to my heart of all those i've done this Christmas.... this is for Grandad to lay on Nan's grave.... Orange was her favourite colour....( her head stone has an orange rose etched on it...)

hence the orange flowers.

I shall enter the following challenges.... ANYTHING GOES WITH OPTION OF TAGS.

THANKS for visiting.... MERRY CHRISTMAS and i wish you love, health and happiness in 2012.
