Tag 7 @ 12 Weeks of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style

Good mornings :)

I am beginning to feel like I am chasing my tail to catch up with
I am getting there though and I have another one to cross off the list today! 
 Today I got started on Tag #7
Yeah yeah I am still all over the place in regards to the order lol 

Linda has yet again created another adorable tag! The evergreen trees in the tag background and behind the Christmas cottage caught my eye this time.  I also adore the reindeer (another die I don't have but I see it is now on my wishy want-y list! lol)  And I love the slightly raised curve the corrugated cardboard gives on the tag, it reminded me of a hill setting.  

So ... I took all that, and tried to make a snowy hill scene with gorgeous evergreen trees in the foreground an ornate wooden porch and I was hoping to find a reindeer in my stash to throw in too! 
My tag on the lefty here    Funkie Junkie Tag here on the right.

 To make my tree scene I used a tree set I have in my collection.
The little reindeer is from my stash and was originally a stud earing that I have removed the back off.  I brought these for my girls but as they are not sterling silver, they hurt their ears and they can not wear them :(  Least I have found a use for them now :))

 The bunny is also another earing from the set I brought.  The chipboard fence I found hidden in my bottom drawer (I don't even remember when I brought this!)  It has had a dose of TH distress inks and I was after a lantern effect with the yellow flower. 

I started this tag by first creating my grass with a piece of torn paper for my grass hill and sponging over it and upwards to make the hill.  Sky was next with some more sponging and TH Distress inks, followed next was the trees. I used the middle of the trees from the Tree Trio set. For the snow I used 3d fabric paint with dazzling diamonds over the top and then stuck down the fence and lantern post and embellished with the flower and the little animals.  I'm still a novice in regards to the 'rules' to tags but I had to matt this!  It just didn't look finished and I was not happy with it till I matted it :$  So I matted it lol

Monday saw a another new tag so there is now 9 in total!
This is number 5 for me so I am over half way there to catching up! 
I can do it!  I got to do it! 
as I do really want a chance to win the shopping spree at   

So ... the less time I spend here chatting, 
the better my odds of Mojo waiting for me and my next tag!
I'm off to have a peak & a play with the other new stamps

Oooh, this is just plain wonderful. I love the evergreen trees and the way you masked them - great depth. The porch and the snow are wonderful additions and the use of the tiny earrings is genius! What a cool scene you have created here. So happy to see another entry from you into the 12 tags challenge.
