The 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop - Day Four

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 (I bet by now you can sing it without the words), 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..........today's project
3 French Hens - see Day Three's pocket card
2 Turtle Doves - see Day Two's center step card
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree - see Day One's center step card

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 and that started me thinking of how I could showcase her digi stamps for this hop.

This is a pocket card featuring the digi image, colored pencils and Stickles (yes, I love them), some candy cane patterned cardstock for the insert and some red music
notes paper for the base, a Christmas tree musical note die, a sentiment sticker, and Love Bug Creations Rumple Ribbon. 

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
