ATC: 12 Days of Christmas and Patti's Fab Kit

"Baby it's cold...INSIDE!"  I broke down last night and turned the heat on in my house.  Well, at least I thought I was turning it on.  I awoke this morning and could almost see my breath!  Little did I know that my husband (Mr. Thrifty) had turned off the gas months ago!  So, I've been freezing while working on my 12 Days of Christmas ATCs . I actually had them completed, but I ruined them all when I sprayed some sealer on them.  I had no idea that this would smear my beautiful first attempt at proper stamping!  The cards would actually be pretty cool for a Halloween or scary swap, but for Christmas, no.  So, I've had to start all over!  Here are three of my - work in progress - cards: 


When Wendy told me that I would be responsible for the "First Day" or "A Patridge in a Pear Tree," I figured it would be easy to come up with an idea.  I was dead wrong.  I actually wish I would have had some sort of kit to help me come up with some ideas...like Patti's kit.  Check out the kit she has put together for creating ATCs on her blog, Treasure Barn.  She is also having a giveaway for one of them.  Hey Patti, do you have a Christmas kit?

I'm off to finish my ATCs.  Have a great weekend!

Toodles for now!

Hello. I do hope you have some warmth now. I too was too cold in my studio and got a chill. So no creating for me as I got into my nice warm heated blanket bed for a quick rest. It is just too hard to be creative when the fingers are frozen. :o)
Thanks for your visit.
Happy Halloweekend...

The person doing the partridge in a pear tree for my matchbox swap has done a humerous take on the theme but I won't spoil the suprise yet ! Love yours.
