T is for: Twelve Days of Christmas

And a Partridge in a Pear Tree...

It's Lacey here and it's my turn to host our new challenge.
We are now on the letter T so our new challenge is:

T is for: The Twelve Days of Christmas

Understanding that there aren't a ton of stamps out there that are specific to the famous song, we are asking that you use the song as your inspiration and try to match one of the "days" of the song as best as you can. If it's not obvious on your card or project, please explain your inspiration in your post. 

For those who may not be familiar with the song, here is the final chorus...

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!
