WooHoo! I've actually comleted Day Four of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS on Day Four!!!!! Miracles never cease!!!! (While it is true that God still performs miracles all the time - I don't REALLY consider this a true miracle you know?!?) Anyway - back to the subject at hand - today's challenge was to create a gift card set (cards and container).

My sister bought this rooster stamp set several years ago. She loves roosters/chickens and she loves to color - however after purchasing several stamp sets she realized she DOESN'T love making cards!!! So I inherited this set. Since Christmas is right around the corner, the economy is bad and funds are tight, I decided what better time to gift her with greeting cards from her own unused stamp set!!!! In addition to 8 of the greeting cards, the box will also contain 8 - 3x3 gift cards with a lovely little hen on the front of them and some gift tags with some adorable little chicks.

Stampin'Up! Stamp Sets: Holidays & Wishes; Itty Bitty Backgrounds; Name of Rooster set is unknown because sistah threw away the label.!!!
Papers & CardStock: SU Bravo Burgundy; Watercolor paper, Others are from Hobby Lobby
Ink: Stazon Jet Black for Rooster; Chocolate Chip for Greeting, Close to Cocoa for sponging; Creamy Caramel for dots.
Accessories: Burgundy Buttons, Brown Ric-Rak, Twine
Markers: SU Ruby Red, Real Rust, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, Handsome Hunter, Garden Green

Hope you enjoyed your visit today. Don't forget to check out the challenges and the blog candy being offered during this 12 days of Christmas party. The ladies have some really great stuff to give away and their handiwork is awesome!!!!

Although I dislike roosters, I have to admit this card is terrific! It has just the right amount of extra detail for the classic barnyard feel.
