Christmas Snippets with a cute Robin

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How was your weekend? As predicted we had a quiet time. This was good as it gave us the chance to get over going to an open air Bootleg Beatles concert at Stansted Park which is about half an hours drive from us which we attended with friends on Friday evening. We did get out for a couple of coffees. 

I have been making more Christmas cards. I was sorting thorough some scraps of paper that I have had for a while. This is the result. 

So you can see the background I made with the patterned paper snippets. When you make a background with this type of pattern it is good for using up smaller snippets. 

This cute robin came from an old card. I used circle dies from 3 John Next Door die sets to cut the image and its mats and layers. Two of the dies I found had a stitched pattern round the edge. 

This is the sentiment that comes with the John Next Door Bauble die set. 

 I am very pleased with how this card turned out. I now have over 70 Christmas cards for this year. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Have a great week. 

Happy Crafting

Wow, this looks stunning. Just shows what a great result you get from a recycled card and lots of snippets. All goes perfectly together. I am sitting in the side garden at the moment overseeing the front garden project which is now underway. The whole of he front garden is having a revamp alng either the stove way. The little digger is here digging up the old concrete driveway. It is going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Hugs Mrs A.
