12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop - Day 12

Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop.

Did you sleigh ride one last time from guest designer Haidee? If so you’re on the right path, but if you stumbled upon this hop and want to begin with our hostess, skate over to Lisa.

Hi, Crafties, Mama LoveBug here - well, we've come to the end of our 12 days and I hope you enjoyed the projects I created.  Thank you so much for your time and lovely comments.  As we approach the holiday season, from our home to yours - Happy Holidays from LoveBug Creations!

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Twelve drummers drumming

(I'm happy to report the engagements of 7 drummers and 10 pipers to the 9 ladies dancing and the 8 maids a-milking; the other missing drummers simply got tired and took a nap!)

Eleven pipers piping (day 11)
Ten lords a-leaping (day 10)
Nine ladies dancing (day 9)
Eight maids a-milking (day 8)
Seven swans a-swimming (day 7)
Six geese a-laying (day 6)
Five golden rings (day 5)
Four calling birds (day 4)
Three French hens (day 3), 
Two turtle doves (day 2), 

And a partridge in a pear tree! (day 1)

Recipe for Double-sided stand-up card or table decor
*Digi My World image - printed twice in horizontal flip and fussy cut; then adhered to thicker Kraft paper and fussy cut again (4 times the cutting); accented with pearl pens and Stickles
*LoveBug Creations Mama's Mesh for his hat

As promised I took a picture of the beginning stages of decorating our local library's display case for my paper crafting projects - the 12 Days of Christmas start from top left to right and go along the first three tiers.  It was a very sunny day when I took the picture, so sorry about the glare but you will get the idea.

And for good measure - here's a pic of a book tree that some other ladies created for our library.
