Getting ready for the Holidays

I am a great admirer of Tim Holtz and have decided to try and create cards based on his new twelve days of Chistmas tags.  I finished the first one and though the NOEL is a bit hard to read for some reason, I really liked the techniques.  I also got to play with the new dies I have been collecting.  Visit his blog  to see his beautiful work.  I'll have to get a better pic of this in the daylight.  I have started my Christmas cards and doing these tags is giving me ideas.  I am making as much use as possible of the cards I received last year.  Here are some examples.  The stamped image is a Tim Holtz I found in the clearance bin last year.  The words are rhinestones also from clearance (orginally $1 ea!  I paid 10c for quite a variety).  The frames are recycled cards and so are some of the backgrounds.  I have about 25 of my 70 cards done.  I really love recycling!
NOTE:  12-2-2011  I changed the pic of the Noel card.  I added the red rose and took a better pic!
