Robin with Holly




A pleasant morning with a definite hint of autumn, we missed the high winds and rain last night so it's not too cold.
 Another Christmas card today one which features one of my favourite birds a robin.

The stamp is from Stampendous and I coloured it with Promarkers the holly stamp comes with the set as well as 2 other birds.A variety of embossing folders and a doily die cut completed the card.
