Right – *rolls up sleeves – let’s see what my ‘true love’ has done this time.
On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, nine ladies dancing…
Wait, what? You know, a voucher for poundland would have been ok but nine ladies dancing??! The downstairs neighbours aren’t going to like this.
One of the most changeable verses in the song. It seems to be all about noise and chaos though. Lords leaping, drummers drumming, pipers piping, men-a-mowing, bulls-a-roaring and bears-a-beating have all been used on day 9 at some point in time.
Carol aside, I should let you know that I used the 12 Days Of Christmas stamp set that came free with Issue 63 of Creative Stamping Magazine.
A line was drawn at the side of the Artist Trading Card and the sentiment stamped in the space created. This area was then masked off and the main design was stamped across the remaining space.
Alcohol markers were used to colour in Miss Piggy and then a metallic purple gel pen and a white gel pen were used to give her dress that shiney lycra look.
Sheesh, I think that I am going to need a bigger home to fit all of these crazy gifts in.
Did you get something lovely over the Chrimbo period?
Don’t worry, only three more days of this nonsense and then it will be business as usual.
Bye for now.
