The 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop - Day One


Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop.  Our blog hostess Lisa is where you should begin the hop if you get lost. Hopefully you've just leaped over from Jillian

"The Twelve Days of Christmas" is a cumulative song, meaning that each verse is built on top of the previous verses. There are twelve verses, each describing a gift given by "my true love" on one of the twelve days of Christmas....and so forth, until the last verse:
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
12 Drummers Drumming
11 Pipers Piping
10 Lords-a-Leaping
9 Ladies Dancing
8 Maids-a-Milking
7 Swans-a-Swimming
6 Geese-a-Laying
5 Gold Rings
4 Calling Birds
3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.............today's project!

First of all, I want to thank Beccy's Place who has an amazing collection of free digis.  She posted a series of the Twelve Days of Christmas vintage images and that started me thinking of how I could showcase her digi stamps for this hop.

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me - a partridge in a pear tree.



This is a center-step card featuring the digi image, colored pencils and Stickles, some Christmas card stock, and LoveBug Creations rumple ribbon on the top left side - I took two different ribbons and made a two-colored bow. Check out the referral prize at the LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon Store! You could win the "Christmas Joy" Collection! Also the first 25 orders will receive a little free something something from our fabulous friend, Tanya Stilwell! :)


Thank you for stopping by....drop me a comment and become a follower if you've a mind........remember no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it........cyberhugs.........Mama LoveBug!

Now I'll send you to Rebecca and after her hop over to visit Teresa
