ABC Christmas Challenge - T is for...

This week at the ABC Christmas Challenge Lacey is the host with a theme of:

'T is for the Twelve Days of Christmas'
We want you to take your inspiration from the words of the song 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:


The prize from Simon Says Stamp is a $15 voucher to spend in their wonderful store!


And from the Stamp Fairy...3 digital images of the winner's choice!

In case you're not familiar with the song, here are the words:

The Twelve Days of Christmas

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas,
My True Love Sent to Me:
Twelve Drummers Drumming;
Eleven Pipers Piping;
Ten Lords-a-Leaping;
Nine Ladies Dancing;
Eight Maids-a-Milking;
Seven Swans-a-Swimming;
Six Geese-a-Laying;
Five Gold Rings;
Four Calling Birds;
Three French Hens;
Two Turtle Doves;
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree!

I couldn't resist using my Penny Black 'Twelve Days of Christmas' stamp set...and have made some Christmas gift tags...using the images coloured using watercolour pencils, and papers from the 'Fancy Christmas' pad by Dovecraft.


I added the co-ordinating sentiment, and some faux stitching along the edges of the papers.


The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that there are only six tags here...bet you can't guess what my mid-way reminder project will be??? lol

I'm also entering these tags into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
