On the twelfth day of Christmas...

In my family, we definitely consider the twelve days of Christmas as part of the holiday.  Christmas doesn't end for us after Christmas Day.  It keeps going until Epiphany, the day the wise men came to give their gifts.  While we don't give gifts on each of those twelve days, we try and keep the spirit and celebration going.  All that Christmas baking of cookies, candies, and other goodies has been saved and gets to be eaten during this time, we keep our tree and all the decorations up, and keep listening to and playing Christmas music.  Besides, after all that work getting ready, who wants it to be over after one day?!

So, in honor of this, I created this set of simple gift tags for my mom's stocking.  She LOVES silhouettes of any kind.  I recently donated my old Slice machine to her and loaned her the design cards for a while and she really wanted to make something with the 12 days of Christmas silhouettes that are on the Mistletoe design card, but ran out of time before Christmas.  So instead, I made her some.  She seemed pretty excited about them.
