Cute Baby Robin - Christmas Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? I hope it is going well. My job is interesting to say the least I am looking after two boys in different classes at the same time. I hope it gets resolved soon. Though it is good for the number of steps I am doing on my Fitbit.

I have been making Christmas cards again. When I made the card for the current challenge on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog I printed two of the baby robins by Beccy Muir onto watercolour card. I found the second image yesterday and I decided to colour it with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I wanted to try something different with the background.

I decided to make an aperture card. I like my apertures to have a frame. I used my tonic circle dies to create both. 

What I did different with the background this time  is to  create it first and that way I could get the blue right up to the image. The stronger coloured pens covered over any blue that got on to the image. 

I have now made over 70 Christmas cards I am not worried anymore that I won't be finished in time this year. In between times I am experimenting with flowers for the wedding. It will all be fine. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

A brilliant Christmas card Jackie, this is a lovely robin. 70 Christmas is very impressive, well done you.
I hope work gets sorted out soon. Supporting children in their learning is tough enough without having to be in 2 places at the same time.
