R is for Robin - the Christmas Robin

Good Afternoon,

Just a quick post today with the latest in the Alphabet series - the R card.

Materials used: Designer paper from stash (can't remember name); Christmas Robin digi stamp from the Digi Stamp Boutique; Christmas Joy Sentiment from Sentiments 4 You; Promarkers; lemon coloured card; red marker pen; red and green glitter; 1/2" & 3" circle punches; 1cm wide yellow polka dot satin ribbon; Anita's metallic floral trims in gold.

I punched the Christmas Robin image out using the 3" punch and then dozens (well, it seemed like it was dozens at the time) of 1/2" wide circles from the lemon coloured card.and then adhered the smaller circles around the larger circle. The finishing touch is the red faux stitching close to the edge of the 3" circle.

I did the same with the digital image I used for inside the card, but instead using a marker for the faux stitching I used a glue pen and red glitter.

Another quick and easy card to make using a really cute digital stamp, don't you just love the robin's little boots, and paper that picked up on the robin theme.

We've had no more snow in Ayr today although the snowfall of yesterday is still lying and has caused a fair bit of disruption. My mother saw days like these as an excuse to get the soup pot out; there was nothing better than arriving home from school to a steaming bowl of mum's homemade potato soup : ) Oh yes, we went to school no matter how bad the weather was- school closure's were rarer than hen's teeth in the fifties - and we had a great time throwing snowballs and creating lethal ice slides. No such thing as elf and safety then!

The postman did deliver this morning as usual but parcel deliveries from UPS have been delayed today so it could be that we won't receive anticipated packages for a day or so until the roads are cleared. Hey, ho, not much we can do about it but wait.

Back to my crafting as plenty still to do.

Bye for now
