12 Days of Christmas - Day Twelve

Uh oh! Oh no! It's the last day of my 12 Days of Christmas. It's been so much fun having my friends join in with their inspiration for you and it's been great seeing everyone link up their cards!


Each day I will create a Christmas card and hopefully inspire you to play along in my link up. I will be joined by a friend, daily, who will also create for you! 

Here is my card - with this one, I had stuck the die cut sentiment (red mirror cardstock) onto the card then hit a block. I just couldn't decide what to do. The Jingle Bells song that we used to sing as kids popped into my head... I hope you know how it goes lol.

I am going to add this to the linkup at Less Is More, where sadly it will be the last month for Sarah Platt. She has spent 4 years creating for the challenge blog and I know that she will be missed!

Today I have Sarah Platt creating for us. I love the non traditional colours and the whimsical wreath Sarah has created!

Thanks for joining us with your inspiration, Sarah!

I also have a little surprise for each of my guests. I decided that for each daily post, I would CASE one of their cards. I looked through just about every post these ladies had ever done and wow, the choices were nearly too much for my little brain ;)

Here is Sarah's card
(another Birthday card I changed into Christmas)

Here is my CASE
Now, all you have to do to play along is comment on my post, visit Sarah and comment on her post, then link up below with a Christmas Card. You will go into the random draw for a prize from Happy Little Stampers!

Each day I will create a Christmas card and hopefully inspire you to play along in my link up. I will be joined by a friend, daily, who will also create for you! 

Here is my card -

I created this card with an Australian Christmas in mind. A lot of people take to the roads with their caravan and camping gear and holiday around the country. Actually, if you are crazy enough to travel at Christmas time, you will see every second car is towing a caravan lol.
This little die set is new to me and the first time I've used it. It's probably the last time... it was so fiddly, I ended up needing a stiff drink!

Today I have Ina Grehan creating for us. I love the gold embossed poinsetta's and sentiment and that background is stunning!


Thank you for joining us with your inspiration, Ina!
