Christmas Rose Christmas card.

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your weekend going?  We have had quite quiet weekend so far. Yesterday we sorted out our passport applications which we did online with our own photos. When we came to send off our old passports we had to send them to different offices. My husband's is on the way to Durham and mine is off to Glasgow. Today it is more work in the garden and a meal out with friends in the evening. Altogether a nice weekend.

A while back I made this card for a competition. I didn't come anywhere but I thought I would share it when I found a photo of  it going through my files.

I found the backing paper in my stash and it has Christmas Roses on it. 

This is a Creative Expressions die cut twice to create a shadow. 

The robin was cut with a Tattered Lace die that came free with a magazine. He is sitting on a spray made with the Holley Spray die set and Festive Bough dies set both from Creative Expressions. 

I had the the Christmas Rose die set from Creative Expressions last year but I only started using it this year it is so pretty. 

I was quite pleased with how this turned out. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
