Day one 12 days of christmas

Morning guys,well as you all know Tim has started his,12 days of christmas and I have followed them for the last 3 years,so did not want to miss this year so here is my take on Tim's tag.
I have non of Tims, dies,as I do not have a macine,to cut them so I  compromised.
I used my spellbinder dies,letters are from storybook from my cricut machine had the inks,
so here it is.
Did not have his pine cone die either so cut some flowers,then just scrunched them up used some frayed burlap to color them,and used a pearl for the centre.
So there you have it,not great I know but hey I tried,no more from me today finding it really hard going at the moment to get myself motivated so hope to catch you all soon.
Oh welcome to kristel to my blog thanks hun for following me.
I shall upload this to tims,page he has the link to put your tags on
Take care guys love cheryl xx

I love your take on t!ms tag, I am currently half way through mine except I did the embossing in reverse (wrong!!) and it didn't look right:(
I did start it at 12am this morning.

Will hopefully get it finished today:)

I love your blog by the way,
I will be popping back to see tag number 2 :).

Beautiful take on Day One! Love your flower embellishment. This is my first year playing and I did not have the pinecone or a few other items! That makes it more of a challenge! See you in Day Two!
