12 tags of Christmas #Day1

So here it is...

It's taken me practically all day as i didn't have any of the dies, so i cut my own house and fence.
I had no mini garland so made the wreath with punched out leaves, The tree i made, by cutting the handles off an artistic stamper paper bag and twisting off the darker outer layer and using the insides, i little twist and glue and your good to go lol
So it just goes to show not all the supplies are needed to re-create Tims art.. but it does help lol
Hope to be back tomorrow with day 2!
