On The First Day of Christmas...

Hello fellow crafters,
As entertainers, John and I used to love doing shows at Christmas time, and always included 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' in our programme. Whenever possible, we never did it 'straight', instead we would involve the people in the audience, and 'play around' with it considerably, thus ensuring great fun for them and us.
The large red panel has been embossed with a Stampin' Up folder, the leaves punched with Martha Stewart's 'Branch', and the stamped image cut with Spellbinders 'Classic Ovals'.
This cute image (coloured with Promarkers) is 'Partridge in a Pear Tree', a freebie digital stamp from Beccy's Place (her badge is on my sidebar).  Thank you very much, Beccy.
Inside the card co-ordinates with the front. I used Marianne dies for the greetings panel, and the poinsettia.

I would like to enter the following challenges -
Ruby's Rainbow #41 - 'Birds'
Crafty Sentiments - 'Christmas'
Beccy's Place - 'Use one of Beccy's images'
I Love Promarkers #143 - 'Christmas Trees'
Penny's Paper Crafty #102 - 'Anything Goes'
Whimsy #53 - 'Traditional Christmas Colouring'
Just a short post tonight friends, as we have to be up early tomorrow to drive to Newcastle through peak hour traffic for John's appointment with a Consultant.

Thank you for visiting, and also for your lovely comments.
