Ballet birthday

12 days of Christmas

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date ... Apologies to Sue P who chose the '12 days of Christmas' for this fortnight's CCC challenge and to all the other girls. I should have posted this Sunday, but things got in the way.

When I was thinking what to do for this I remembered I had a 'partridge in a pear tree' stamp somewhere, which I was going to use. But when I was looking for something else I found some Hunkydory card and elements that were perfect for this challenge - 'A partridge in a pear tree' from their Stylish Season collection.

The card split nicely into two, with the first three items from the song on the first one and the last three on the second one. I will have the other days to use on future cards.

These are also for:

Sarn's Rudolph Day October
Polka doodles 42: Christmas in coming
Always playing with paper merry Monday 80: use music or create a carol inspired card: A partridge in a pear tree
Craft room: our feathered friends (particularly the first card)
Ooh-la-la: things with wings
