On the third day of Christmas.........



My true love gave to me, 3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a pear tree.....

I hope you're singing along to our 12 days of Christmas hop!!! I am 3 french hens:) You should be hopping here after the second day of Christmas on DEB's Blog. If not, head back to the first day, BEV's Blog. I am using the new Crissy Armstrong image, N'ice friends:) How cute is this little snowman and his birdie friend??? You just NEED to make a fun little card with them!! I used some K&Co papers along with my snowflake punch. To keep in line with my "3 french hens" I used the "noel" sentiment and the bird. Close enough!!! I then made the same card using muted colors and some distressing for a more antique feel. I also swapped out the eyelets for pearls!! This was such a fun sketch and cute image, I just had to make 2!!
Head on over to the fourth day of Christmas to see what my talented friend Stacey has in store for you....just keep singing all the way to the last stop for your chance at some mystery stamp candy!!!
