What a fabulous challenge! Susie, did you know I had a bunch of paper from Graphic45 on the Twelve Days of Christmas?? Well, i used a lot today for this card. Spent many hours fuzzy cutting and enjoyed every minute of it! I remember when my mom went into asst living and blamed my sister-in-law and me for putting her there! That was a bad year....but she began to love it....and it was where she belonged...

Bravo Kathy for a most glorious 12 days of Christmas and all the items of Susie’s fabulous challenge! So many details to admire and awe over! I love this and so will my Mom.
I along with my siblings experienced the same as you and you DSIL with relocating our Mons to an assisted living. It will be a month in November 30th and she is now realizing that she is literally on vacation and has a new outlook on all the perks of her new home.
Thanks so much for your creative card for Mom

All of you who love to fussy cut just blow my mind. I think you're nuts :0)
But what a beautifully fussy cut card with all those 12 days of Christmas scenes. Vintage fabulousness! And that tree! Awesome!

Oh my goodness Kathy, this is absolutely fabulous, wonderful, spectacular, super duper brilliant! I can see it has taken hours of happy snipping and punching, worth every minute. Jeannies mum will be over the moon when she sees this. Thanks for coming to the Tea party, I'm baking you your very own batch of cookies!
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Wow Cathy! This is one absolutely incredible Christmas card. I love the vintage feel of this card with this gorgeous paper. Your Christmas tree is an amazing work of art with all these pine branch die cuts and with the 12 days of Christmas ornaments you so lovingly cut out and hung in just the right places. Then you added in all these gems too- just fantastic! It is so hard to place our loved ones in assisted living facilities. I am sorry your mother was so upset with you, but glad she came around in time. Those or tough things. I know Jean's mother will truly appreciate this amazing Christmas card you made just for her! ~Karen.

I thought I had commented on all the card in this gallery so I'm not quite sure how I missed this. Your G45 paper is perfect. Super fussy-cutting, and your tree is gorgeous. I especially like the partridge...and the French hen.
