Cardinal or other Christmas bird at the Christmas card club

Good morning lovelies! I should be in Cleethorpes right now but will be able blog as normal!!!! But I have scheduled posts for this week. This is the first! Its Christmas card club time again and the theme this time is a cardinal or another Christmas bird. Since I didn't have any cardinals I went for a robin:


The image is from Sheena Douglass - as is the embossing folder! I embossed a piece of card then coloured using the evergreen bough distress ink pad. I coloured the robin using promarkers.

Thats all for today! I hope you're having fun and thanks for dropping by!

Hugs

  14. I do love a Robin! I have to admit I thought the image was a Claritystamp stamp. He is so like my Claritystamp Robin - must try to ink him up again soon and I will be checking CC for Sheena's stamps. I hope you have a lovely time and the weather is kind to you! Karen x

  26. Great image and embossing folder. A robin is so Christmas-y - even though it's in the garden all year round! Christine xx

  27. I love robins and have one feeding every day - he is very territorial though and doesn't like blackbirds (let along his own species). Your card is great and the emb. folder looks great!

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  28. This is just a darling robin (and they are Christmas birds too!). Love his pretty little self and he looks quite cheeky too. Liked the spriggy paper behind him, and this is just a happy feeling card. TFS & interpreting the bird theme in such a delightful way. Hope you're having a fun time where you are. Hugs
