4 Calling Birds

I am determined to keep creating Christmas Cards all year long and when I saw the challenge from Jingle Bells I just had to join in:
There were several options in the challenge and the last one was "And your final choice is to create a holiday card that references any aspect of the song *The Twelve Days of Christmas*"  It's pretty clear I picked "4 Calling Birds"!
I have this very old set from Penny Black actually called "12 Days of Christmas" and the 12 stamps are so cute! I had created a card with "3 French Hens" for CAS Christmas Card Challenge August 2020:
I am so glad I have this set:
Lot of fun making with this set for sure:
Don't you just love these birds dialing or texting on their phones?
Here is the inside message using the Essential by Ellen "Besties" and Altenew's "Happy Holiday":
Thank you for joining me and here are links for some of the products I used to make this card:
