Partridge in a Pear Tree.

There haven't been any  Christmas type swaps this year that have caught my eye so I decided  to challenge myself to see if I could come up with a set of cards for the 12 days of Christmas. I also decided to use digi's for the design and use a different web site/shop for each of them.
So without further ado here is my card for The first day of  Christmas.
A Partridge in a Pear Tree.


Digi image by Stitchy Bear
Coloured in using Graph'it pens and a gold gel pen.

Mounted onto thick  yellow card and then  gold shimmer paper.

  10. Lovely card there Mrs A! Lovely colours and great colouring in!
    The good thing about having a partridge in a pear tree for a pressie is you get to eat the partridge for dinner and the pears for pudding! Delicious!

  11. You're always so clever Mrs. A with crafting and I'm sure so many other things. The card is really lovely with the wonderful colors - you're an amazing woman! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such wonderful words on my blog...makes me smile. Sorry I've not been commenting but I've been looking (working in the wee hours - grave shift, is tiring on me...but crafting requires the green back) and you inspire me to do the little things I do...yay! :-)

  36. I've been very naughty about visiting you, what with Thanksgiving and now Christmas prep, so I've had a lot of catching up to do with you, Mrs. A! I loved starting at the current bird card and coming back to the beginning here! What a great idea your self-imposed challenge is, and your cards depicting the 12 days have been fantastic!! Keep up the great work!! I have to get back to making cards to send since I'm far behind (Talk about naughty! It's not like I have much else to do with my days!), but I'll be back to see how you finish up the series! Hugs, Darnell
