Twelve days of Christmas

When I read this weeks challenge I remembered that I had a set of stamps that I have had for several years, but how to get them on a tag was a challenge, so I put them on twelve separate tags! Don't worry they were small ones and I have photographed them in groups! Phew, thank goodness I hear you cry, so here is the 'Mummy tag' with all her babies:

Sorry about the light quality but at the moment I am leaving for work in the dark and coming home in the dark. Here is the big tag, painted with Antique Linen DS and then snowflakes stencilled on with the same colour in DI. The and of are stamped, Christmas is a TH rub -on and Days are metal letters studded in place and Twelve is die cut from some Christmas paper.
The  small tags were all die cut from some cream card and edged in alternate green and red. Then each character stamped and coloured and the number added.
1-3 aren't they cute?
I love the calling bird!
I love the sheep playing the pipes!
I tied them all on with paper twine and there you go. Thank you for all your kind comments you leave me, I am loving the variety so far this week. Hope you all have a good one and get all the shopping done. Love to all. x
