Robins at christmas

I have to admit that Robins are my favorite bird and I do tend to feature them a lot in my cards....





on this card I have used a paper boutique die ...with nuvo drops for berries and the Robin and backing papers are craftwork cards.....the foliage dies are tattered lace and Tim Holtz....a bit of distress ink and another card made....
I hope you have nearly finished making your christmas cards....I have had so much fun this year...

Happy Birthday Julie...

I can post this card now that it has been received by my friend Julie in Hay on Wye....she collects Royal Doulton ladies and this just seemed appropriate....





made using the tattered lace Country Manor die Ida (another set I had forgotten I had bought) and a Sue wilson die behind it....the sentiment is from Tonic.....
thanks for popping by my blog today and I hope that you too are enjoying some crafty time.....
