Hello everyone - nice to see you all again.
Its time for a new challenge here and we have a fabulous one set by the Lovely Laurie ...who unfortunately is not here as she is on her Holidays .. so on her behalf .. the Challenge theme is 

and as a little reminder .. here are the words of the song..

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree

Now you can interpret the theme in any way you want and in any form of craft... you can enter up to 3 times BUT each entry must be a different type of craft project.
The prize is a £10 voucher to either spend online at Every Crafts a Pound or in the shop 

so here is some inspiration for you from the DT ... i think you will agree they are fabulous .
WE also have a new DT joining us - CELIA who is a member of the class at the shop .. so please stop by her blog and leave extra Christmas cheer!
