Twelve Days of Christmas

Hi everybody!

At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is 'The Twelve days of Christmas'.
I didn't find any fitting stamps in my stash, so had to re-think the story, as I wanted to do the partridge in the pear tree.
The background has been stamped with a LaBlanche stamp using a glue pad and gold EP. The tree has been die-cut with a TH die using gold textured paper, and I must tell you, it is a pear tree. Those red heart shaped fruits are Christmas pears. And the partridge? Well, it unfortunately flew away just as I took the  picture, so you will just have to imagine it on the tree. But I am sure you can see that the 3 French hens stayed put for the photo. They have disguised themselves with Christmas hats and scarves, embellished with glitter liner, so that they don't look out of place.







Well, sometimes stories change....
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  9. Love your story, and certainly can understand why the partridge flew away. Those three Christmassy hens could be a bit overwhelming!

  13. Perhaps the partridge is hiding behind the red bow. Regardless, I love the richness of your color scheme and beautiful embellishments. Blessings, my friend!
