    The Twelve Days of Christmas

    I saw loads of cute little ornament ideas in an old magazine and thought they'd also be a great idea for a swap! So for this swap we will be making ATC’s that depict the days from the song The 12 Days of Christmas. For those who can’t remember all of the verses or the order of gifts, I’ll list them below. It is not required to include the entire number of the gifts on your cards as long as there is at least one shown. You will receive in your returns a full set of the 12 days... no one will receive duplicate days. If we do not have 12 players you may receive more than one card from the same player.


    The gifts are:

    Day 1. A partridge in a pear tree
    Day 2.Two turtle doves
    Day 3.Three french hens
    Day 4. Four calling birds
    Day 5. Five gold rings
    Day 6. Six geese a-laying
    Day 7. Seven swans a-swimming
    Day 8. Eight maids a-milking
    Day 9. Nine ladies dancing
    Day 10. Ten lords a-leaping
    Day 11. Eleven pipers piping
    Day 12. Twelve drummers drumming


    Sample Cards:

    day 1.jpg day2.jpg day3.jpg

    *Most* of the usual rules apply:

    1. No paper-thin cards, shaped is fine… no chunky elements, and have fun!
    2. Please send a SASE2 or 2 forever stamps/large address label sticker and enclose each card in a protective sleeve. ($2 for international players will be fine. If postage is higher I will cover the difference.
    3. Leave iTrader and rep points as appropriate.
    4. Stop in and visit when you can.
    5. While an extra card for the host will always be cherished, it is also completely optional.

    Who is ready for some Christmas fun?

    Five down and seven to go! When I finish “six geese a-laying” I will post a pic of my first six cards. The next six might just be a little slower. All my days of Christmas images are drawn inside snow-globes.

    CiCiCreates these are fabulous!!! I love how the calling birds ARE calling, and the goose laid a golden egg! Too perfect! Great idea to make them into snow globes. :-)

    Thank you! I’ve been meaning to say how much I like your adorable snowmen in the theme example pics. There are so many creative things we can do with this theme, it was a great idea.

    I got two more done last night, but now I’m not quite sure of 5 because I interpreted the rings as hula hoops. Let me grab a picture....

    These were VERY fun to draw, but would they be fun to receive? Thoughts anyone?
    Also took a cue from CiCi and added text.

    Yes, they would be fun to receive!! I can’t think why they wouldn’t.
