12 Days of Christmas Partridge

Hi everyone,
Welcome to two new followers, Peggy and Scrappin Mama - blogger is still playing up and is not showing all my followers all the time, so if you don't see your pic there, I haven't deleted you at all. Blogger is being a pain!!!
It's been a lovely day weather wise here, a warm day and tonight it is still warm but with a cooling breeze. We've just come back from our daughter's helping to celebrate her boyfriend's birthday. He had his dad and partner and some of his friends over for a barbecue. I had our granddaughter over today she came with us. I was going to keep her overnight, but she is not 100% well again and we were only about 10 mins or so away from their home, so I took her home. That saves them coming and picking her up in the morning and also me picking up another bug with her sleeping next to me in bed!
I'm still a bit croaky but at least can sing now. We still have a carol's concert at the end of next week to perform.
Well as promised yesterday I do actually have the card to share. I went out and bought ink today and the printer will now scan. Crazy, I don't understand why they would make a programme for the printer to stop function in all modes when the ink is low or empty! Glad it wasn't an important document that I wanted to e-mail to someone.
This is the card I made,
Basecard and the largest nestie are made from a light blue cardstock. I made a line of faux stitching around the nestie. The DP is from My Mind's Eye. I cut another nestie in white and mounted the partridge on top of this with foam dots. The image is from a digi set called The Twelve Days of Christmas from Doodle Pantry and I coloured it with Copic Markers. The sentiment is also from the same set. I probably have enough cards for this year, but was keen to start using these lovely digis.
Thanks for dropping in today and for your lovely comments. I've enjoyed reading them. Also thanks to those who sent birthday greetings to my Mum, she reads my postings so will have seen them.
