Winter Robin

Hello my crafting friends good to have you visit me today I do appreciate it and look forward to reading your comments.

Now my PC has died on me so I am having to manage with an old laptop at the moment that we cannot load windows onto, so my son has managed to get some old service on here, at least it works until we get the PC sorted, actually I am hoping we don;t get it sorted then maybe hubby will buy a new one tee hee! Am I naughty lol! I can get the internet thankfully other wise there would be no blog at all, not sure if I could live without that!!!

Today I am back with a Christmas card.

I folded a sheet of Gold card in half to form an A5 size base card then matted this with a piece of Winter themed paper from a 12X12 pad I bought a while back from The Range, I distressed the edges and turned the corners before taping it onto my base card.

I cut this image of a little Robin sitting on a fence in the snow from one of my Christmas cards so I placed this onto my card at an angle then added some Fir branches and Red Poinsettia in the bottom left corner, some Ivy in the top right corner and a Red bow in the top left corner. I found some beads I had stashed away that came from some Christmas crackers a couple of years ago so keeping them on the wire I added them to my card by wrapping them round the bow, Ivy and corner of the paper.

To finish the card I added some snow writer all around the edges of the paper, the Robin image, the Poinsettia and fir branches and the beads.

I quite like the look of this fairly quick and easy card I hope you do too.
