Christmas robin at coffeepot

Evening all! How are you? I hope you are well. We are good. I had a great day today - I was supposed to be at home doing chores but a friend Andrea invited me to swim fit  - we know how to live - so at 11 I left the house and had a great swim....then we stayed for lunch and chatted the afternoon away. It was great therapy! Really enjoyed it!

Today I have a Christmas card to share that I made at coffeepot on Monday - Diane brought along a couple of stamps and I chose this robin one to stamp and colour.


I used water colour pencils throughout. The stamp I think was woodware and I used a hobby art holly leaf around the edge of the base card.

Hope you've had a great day!

Big hugs

  3. I like the old boot in the robin image. I expect he thought the lace was a nice juicy worm though. Lol. Hugs Mrs A.
