Little Festive Robins

Today’s card features Little Festive Robins, one of the new Christmas stamps from Lili of the Valley.  I adore this stamp, one of my faves from this release.  The stamp is also from LOTV, from the Christmas Circular Sentiments set.

The papers are Nitwit Collections that I have had printed off for an absolute age.  The ribbon I have had for ages as well.  The snowflake is a Christmas decoration that a lovely lady in the US sent me last year (yep the same little angle that knows I love nougat lol).  The corner metal embellishment is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I nipped into Papercuts in Whitley Bay today to stock up on some of the new Christmas papers that are starting to trickle in to the stores (like I need more paper!!) and whilst I was there we sorted out 4 classes that I will be teaching over the next couple of months, one for Copics colouring and the others will be making different projects, so if you live nearby and would like to join in on one of the classes do drop them an email to get the details and dates. 

It’s also Teddy Bo Tuesday today and also a new challenge which is being hosted by Team B – the theme is Alter Something and the DT have come up trumps this week!  Also, there are some gorge new images out today – too cute for words!

Back to the garage conversion grindstone – the walls are getting the treatment today, I know it’s going to be a while before I get in there as there is still so much to do but oh I can’t wait (even though it means that Tony will be hefting all my crafty stash down there from the current craft room and the spare bedroom so he is going to have a darn good idea just how much stuff I have … oh dear!)

I also have some amazing candy to give away this week, as soon as it arrives and I get it photographed I will post it, this is one lot of deliciousness you won’t want to miss!!

  52. A beautiful card as always. Your choice of papers is just right and suits the image to a tee. Do you colour the image and then find the papers or the other way round? xxx

  55. I like the way you have created a card that does not look flat despite the fact it is only one layer. It is so cute image.

  56. Love the card and the colouring as always, and I agree, hubbies should never ever know just how much stuff we have and especially that we often have several of the same or very similar things. Well...you just have to don't you?

  57. Oh so cute, love this image and the beautiful embellished corner.
