A Partridge in a Pear Tree

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How did your week start? I am waiting in for my new oven to be delivered today. A couple of things that I thought would be happening aren't anymore but that gives more time to craft. I have just found out that our son-in-law was taken into hospital last night. As far as I know he is still there having test. I wonder what the rest of the day will bring.

I have been joining in with the Month of Holiday Cards Challenge at Beccy's Challenge blog.   Last week she set the challenge of using one of her free images to make a card. I did make one with the Patchwork Deer But I spotted this image when I was looking through and I had seen another challenge for a Christmas song inspired make so I thought I would have a go.


I found the perfect backing paper in my stash. I added some Washi tape at the bottom. 


The image is called Partridge in a Pear Tree and is free on Beccy's blog. I coloured with Promarker and added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella Pen. 


This one should be nice and flat for posting. I love red and gold and green together on Christmas cards. 


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

I was sorry to read about your son-in-law Jackie, I hope the doctors are able to find the problem and figure out the right treatment. Hopefully he'll be back on his feet and home again soon.
You did a fantastic job on today's card, I love the design. The background paper is wonderful and you chose a great coordinating card stock to mat everything. The strip of washi tape looks great... I actually thought it was ribbon until I read your description. Lovely!
Cheers,
Beccy
