The 12 Days of Christmas Quest: Day Seven

Hello and happy New Year's Eve everyone!  Just one more sleep until a brand new year!

First I must apologize.  I'm rather later than I expected to be getting out today's post.  When I went downstairs so that I could be with the hubs while I worked, I couldn't access any Blogger websites.  Not my own, nor anyone else's. I kept getting a 403 forbidden notice from our security suite saying it was blocking the download of some sort of virus.  Huh?!  I was only opening a web page, I wasn't downloading anything.  Anyway, we thought it was the laptop since I had opened pages upstairs all afternoon up until 30 minutes earlier.  So while the hubs tried to check things out on the laptop, he told me to head upstairs and work on this post.  Only problem was, same thing starting happening upstairs.  Suffice it to say, it took over an hour and a half to figure out what was going on.  In the end we simply updated the security software one more time and that seems to have resolved the issue for now at least.  Due to losing all that time, I also haven't had the chance to email yesterday's paper out to those who played along.  Given that I still have two more, maybe three more posts to get ready tonight and that it is New Year's Eve, more than likely I will not get a chance to mail them until tomorrow now.  If yoy are waiting, I appreciate your patience.  Now onto today's part of the quest.

It is the seventh day of Christmas and it is time to continue the quest.  If you missed day one click HERE to start from the beginning and read all the details.

As a quick refresher, each day during the 12 Days of Christmas (Dec. 25th to Jan. 4th), you're going to be given a task to follow.  I'll be sending you on a quest to find or provide me with certain facts from the stores or blogs of designers that I love.  Then, it is will just be a matter of emailing me the answer to my query and you'll earn a free digital paper.

Since this is a busy time of year for most people, you will have plenty of time to complete the quest.  It is completely up to you as to when and how you submit your answers (daily, all at once at the end, or otherwise) AS LONG AS all your answers are sent in no later than January 12th, 2015.

Here is the paper up for grabs today...
This paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels, in jpg format and published at 300 dpi.  Today's paper was created using elements from two great designers.

These funky trees are courtesy of DBS DigiScraps.   This artist offers up free commercial use and personal use overlays, papers, quick-pages, kits, etc., using items she has either created totally on her own or with the assistance of other free commercial use items.  Once again the  background was created with an overlay from Marisa Lerin with Pixel Scrapper.  As you've noticed I rely on this wonderful designer a lot.  

Play along each of the 12 days and you'll earn yourself the full set!  So, how about we get started with today's clue!!!

On the seventh day of Christmas,
it is time to earn paper number seven.
Keep up the good work and before you know it,
you'll soon work your way up to number eleven!!!
