A trio of Christmas cards using different background scenes from La Pashe, a Christmas frame from Card Making Magic and robin and holly dies from Two Red Robins, Highlight Crafts I am trying to finish my Christmas cards as I hope to be admitted for a hip replacement before Christmas, I say hope as the waiting time is substantially longer now than it was when I saw the Consultant in June. 

Using Two red robin dies has made it so much easier than sitting to colour images. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit, I hope you are all well and enjoying the autumnal colours, it's my favourite time of year.

All three cards are beautiful. I love robins and was watching one yesterday while we were out. He wouldn't stay still long enough for me to photo him. I think he was playing with me lol.
Thank you for sharing with us.

Lovelydesigns and design full of gorgeous colours.

Seafield Jo said...

Wow, wow and wow again! Stunning cards Meg. I love that you've used a different shape and framed the images so beautifully.
I love robins. We have a regular visitor to our garden. I truly believe robins are messages from our loved one's. I lost my dad a few years ago now, whenever I'm feeling a bit down, the little robin will sit in the garden and sing his little heart out. I believe it's my dad telling me everything will be ok.
Thanks for sharing your gorgeous cards with us (and sorry for the waffle!).

These are gorgeous wintery scenes. So elegant with the ornate frames. I e never had so few Christmas cards done at this time of year, so I need to make cards in batches too.
