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.

This is really gorgeous. I love your colouring - so many detailed little strokes, I can never get Promarkers to draw so finely! All the layers and embossing are absolutely luscious!

What a cute image and a beautiful card Meg. I adore the layers of embossing in white with just that bit of green round the edges, and the beautifully coloured robin on top with the die cut doily which frames it so prettily. Thank you for joining in with the September Rudolph Days Challenge. x
