12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop - Day 1

Ho-Ho-Ho, Merry Christmas, and Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop.  If you just visited Cely, then you are on the right path, but if you stumbled upon this hop and want to start with our super blog hostess, sleigh over to Lisa

This is my third year participating in the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop and I've found it a wonderful experience - so much creativity and inspiration plus a chance to score terrific blog candy!!

This year I'm featuring Julie Nutting doll stamps, Dyan Revealey Dylusions stamps, and Penny Black Christmas stamps to make 12 double-sided Christmas tags, one for each line of the 12 Days of Christmas song, plus some handmade embellies with dies, Christmas trimmings, and LoveBug Creations Mama's Mesh.  I also used Graphic 45's 12 Days of Christmas paper and other papers from my stash.  I even broke out some tools I "had to have" but haven't used in a long time - my ripping rulers.  On the flip side of each tag I fashioned a little pocket to include a note for someone special.  I had lots of fun creating these to give to friends during the holiday season.

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