On the Twelfth Day of Christmas.

Day 12 of the Frosted Designs 12 Days of Christmas Challenge. Beat you to it Mr Linky!

On the Twelfth day of Christmas my True Love said to me please use 12 Brads.

I have had these cute little Christmas Tree brads in my stash for at least forever. (Fluff gave them to me.) Joy of joys when I counted them out I had twelve + two over for spares!!
How to display them to their advantage was the question. Looking through my pile of design paper I found this Holly Hobbie one that I thought would work well. Strategically  cutting the paper to give me three bars and four vertical lines (can you  tell I'm an Accountant by trade and worked with figures !) I came up with the following card.

The red check backing paper is also by Holly Hobbie and both came free in a magazine.
Close up below showing the Brads.

I reckon on day thirteen you collapse and finally realise you should put your feet up and be lazy! I'm very impressed that you did all twelve, and even more so that you did it with such style and a wide range of techniques. Just brilliant.

Cheers, Rachel.

Well done Mrs A - what a clever little sausage you are! In celebration I'm gonna lie in me little bed early wiv me Kindle and listen to that flipping wind (OUTside the house I might add).

Love how you found things to cover all the numbers from 1 to 12 as well as making such fabby cards.....I'd have thrown in the towel by about number three!

Hugs, Di xx
