On the 4th day of Christmas......!!

Hi All,

Guess what??!? As some of you know, I am totally fortunate to be on PaperCraftPlanet's Design Team and today it is my turn to host DAY 4 of the 12 days of giveways at Paper Craft Planet. YAY!!! I am so excited to host the challenge!
All you have to do for each of the days , is to make a card or project with the theme for the day. My day is Day 4 - so guess what I have today?!!! 4 Calling Birds (the themes for the days before3 me have been --- you guessed it... 3 French hens, 2 turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree :)

So for this project all you have to do is to make a card with ANYTHING with a BIRD on it and you are automatically entered into the 12 days of Giveaways Contest - where each day a different sponsor is giving away a different gift. Today's Sponsor is Our Daily Bread!!! They have beautiful stamp sets, cardstock, paper, inks, rub ons and more - check out this awesome company created by Kelly Holland (click here)  Kelly is giving away the stamp set "Sing to the Lord" you can check out this beautiful stamp set here.

In making this card for today's challenge - I kinda had an idea that I wanted to use my new Penny Black stamps that I just got (thanks Tammy for tips on where to get them!) - but then as soon as I saw this awesome and fun sketch from Taylor's Friday Cupcake Challenge, then I immediately knew that I wanted to incorporate my card with that sketch because of her four square elements in the sketch and the 4 calling birds :)

Here is Taylor's fun sketch:

and here is my take on her sketch:

I totally enjoyed these two challenges and cannot even tell you how much fun I had making this card. Those birds with their cellphones (calling birds) totally crack me up. Here are some other pics of it:

So - are you ready to join in the fun!!!??!!!

Here are the rules:

1. Upload your card/project to PaperCraftPlanet starting from Monday, December 1 today at one minte after midnight till no later than 12:01am EST of December 2nd (basically - till the end of today!)

2. Include the tag 12day4 (all in lower case) - you will find the tag spot under the description for your card/project when you upload the picture of your card/project. This tag allows me to find it and then drag it into our Day 4 Album. It will also make sure that your project will be entered to win a fabulous gift from our sponsor for Day 4: Our Daily Bread.

PLEASE NOTE: Paper Craft Planet does NOT automatically load your project into the album. I have to do that manually - so don't worry if you don't see your creation right away - I will be checking throughout the day - a few times every hour to add them in. Just make sure you use the above tag so that I will know where to find it - otherwise it will not show up when I search for items with that tag.

Can't wait to see all of your beautiful creations!!Don't forget to check out the blog candy at Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - this week's challenge at Cinema Saturday is Miracle on 34th Street! 

And happy December 1st to all of you!! Can you believe that its December!!!!

Thanks so much for visiting!!
Best wishes!
Sankari :)
