On the 3rd day of Christmas my true love gave to me …

3 French Hens

3 French Hens

Three hens wearing berets, armed with french bread and wine! Oui, oui!!  🙂   

Yep, it’s Day Three of the Twelve Days of Christmas from Penny Black!  I really am having way too much fun with these adorable stamps.    The three french hens were colored with Copics, their shirts were paper pieced to match the background DP, and their bodies were cut out and attached to the sponged circle.  I added some Diamond Glaze to the wine glass too!

I received a link to an article stating that the modern-day gifts from the Twelve Days of Christmas song would cost over $86,000.00 in 2008!!  Wow, that’s REALLY true love!  🙂     Don’t forget, Day Four will be posted on Monday…hope you are able to stop back.     Thank you and Happy Friday….TGIF!! 

Here’s the original meaning to the Day Three gift:

Three French Hens
The Three Theological Virtues:  1) Faith, 2) Hope, and 3) Love (1 Corinthians 13:13)



  1. That’s a good one, I like the strong colours. But I STILL don’t understand how some people are so creative as to remove two of the breadsticks and wine glasses – it JUST would NOT occur to me to DO that!!!! I need practice and to study the experts like you!! 😉

  2. Absolutely fabulous, Mary! You are a whiz with those Copics! The coloring on the hens is awesome!
