Christmas Robin



I had been hoping to see Macbeth yesterday, but it wasn't showing at Union Square in Aberdeen, so went to see Suffragette instead, I did enjoy it although it wasn't as dramatic as I expected from the previews  It was very harrowing in places and I am so glad that I didn't live then.
Another nice day the sun is trying really hard to come out and it is not cold.

Oh I love Robins Meg… and you've coloured this little chap so beautifully! Love the scrummy papers and embellies… everything has come together perfectly on this card!
I read a book all about the Sufragettes… and like you say… was amazed how harrowing it was in places… it seems quite a romantic ideal on the surface but it was actually some very serious stuff. I look forward to the film though.. as such a great cast!
Hope you have a good evening!
Big hugs, Sue B xx

You live in Aberdeen? Been there a couple of times for work and it's on my wishlist for a private trip as well. Any good crafting stores there I'd love to hear about it.
But I'm here to look at your card, I love robins, they live here in Norway as well, but we have no cardinals which are popular winter birds on cards in blogland. Lovely coloring and design!
