Hello lovely blogsters out there - well  YEEHAAA it has happened!!  I have 100 followers thanks to the lovely Darcy Schroeder (Crafting with Darcy) and I am now going to tell you that I am putting together a smidge of CANDY to celebrate!  Keep your eyes on my blog - Blossom is helping me with this one ... and she is GOOD!   Anyway all will be explained when I have finished collecting the goodies for the CANDY BOX! 

Now for my card for the CCC - this time it was my turn to select our Christmas theme, so I chose ... The Twelve Days of Christmas.  I didn't mean all on one card - although if someone has decided to depict all 12 days, that will be wonderful!  I just meant for the girls to depict the day of their choice. 

Here is mine - I couldn't get past the first day - lol!  As it usually is with me, I couldn't remember all the days ie how many Lords were leaping, how many swans were swimming etc.   I just popped '12 Days of Christmas' into my search thingy and amongst the thousands of bits of info I found some pics (free of course).  I liked this one because of all those juicy pears! So .....

On the First Day of Christmas my true love gave to me ....... la la la la la la!

A Partridge in a Pear Tree - boom boom!!

7" x 7" White Card Blank - Anna Marie Designs
Digi from th'internet
Green Mirror Card - Creata
White dotty embossed card - C&C
Joyful Peace Paper Pad - GCD Studios
Sentiment - LOTV
Flowers/Holly leaves - WOC
Red Berries and leaves - Anna Marie Designs
I thought I would mention that the card (matting layers) which looks black is actually a dark green 'mirror' card from Creata - it really is a lovely colour but just doesn't show up on the pics - apologies to the Maestro because I asked him to do loads of them just to see if we could get the green to show up!  Eeeeeek!
This is another one to add to my collection of Christmas cards and another one I won't have to make the week before Christmas!  Woohoo.
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my cards, please take care of yourselves and have a lovely weekend.  It is quite nice here for a change, chilly but at least it isn't raining ........... yet!
Hugs to you all and thanks for any comments you have left me.
