Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog - Use Holly and or Ivy

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

Welcome to my second post of the day. All my news is in the first post.

The new challenge starts today at the Winter Wonderland Challenge blog the theme is Use Holly and or Ivy in your creation. The sponsor is SheepSki Designs. 

I have a bit of a confession. I printed off the image and I coloured it and then made a card I was pleased with, then I checked the theme. Opps I had to start all over again. On the plus side I can use the other card for another design team. If you look carefully at the backing paper you can see that it has Holly on it. 

There are some wonderful images in the store click on the logo and you will be taken there. 

This image is called Winter Robin and is available HERE. I printed onto Neenah card stock and I coloured the image with my Promarkers. The frame was cut with my Creative Expression's Double Pierced Circles. 

The sentiment was cut with a Crafter's Companion die that came with last year's Advent calendar. What I like is that the dot over the i is attached. I have treated myself to this year's Crafter's Companion Advent calendar and I have bought one for a friend. 

I made the ivy with Ivy Spray Dies from the John Next Door range. I used snippets of  pale green card that  I inked over it with Distress ink to give some texture.  

I do like seeing robins on Christmas cards. This one was lovely to colour. Why not come and join in with our challenge. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Enjoy the weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Beautiful card Jackie - your colouring is so good as well! Love the ivy with the holly in the background too.

And totally agree about the dot being attached to the letter i on the sentiment. When they're loose they really are tricky to attach to the card.
