Eight Maids a Milking

     Tuesday Throwdown is jumping on the "Christmas in July" bandwagon and our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps.  They generously supplied images for the team to use, although I used an older one I already had in my collection.  I picked "8 Maids-a-Milking" which is part of the 12 Days of Christmas set.  Every image in that set is adorable and I have made several cards with them in ast years.  One year I did all my gift tags using the set.  Here's my card for today.


 I based this on the sketch from The Outlawz.


      I colored the image with ProMarkers, the used dies from Spellbinders to cut and mat it.  The dp for the mat is from Authentique.  The additional two papers were in my Christmas stash and the sparkly red ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I printed the sentiment (also part of the Bugaboo set) and used a third die to cut it.  The pearl swirls were in my stash.

     OK, I know that for the last week I've really been obsessed with Christmas but since I hadn't done any Christmas cards or tags up until then, I'm just catching up.  :-D  Come play along with us this week, and if you haven't started either, this would be the perfect time.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
