Christmas Card Number Two

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? We have had some horrible weather down here near the south coast. I hope everyone is okay.

I found myself with a little bit of free time. I went out and posted some samples for Tattered Lace and when I got home, with no deadlines looming,  I decided to make another Christmas card. I have promised myself that this year will not end in a rush, like last year did. I am going to have to get a bit of a move on if I am going to have enough.

I went to my Christmas stash and on top was the Making Cards Christmas edition magazine from last year. In there were lots of lovely images and papers.


This is a 6" x 6" card. The backing paper and the image came from the magazine. All the dies I used are designed by Sue Wilson. 


Isn't this robin just so cute? I do love robins on Christmas cards they are so cheeky. 


I cut the sentiment in black and covered it with spray glue before coating it with glitter. 


So one more card for the stash I really do need to get some more made. Where does all the time go?

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie
