Christmas Card

Hello All.

Well this makes a nice change doesn't it. The weekend is here and the sun is out woo hoo!!  Having a nice lazy day today.  Been out in the garden this morning tidying up again.  Everything has gone mad with all the rain we've had. 

Last year I made at least one Christmas card a week but this year I've let it slip so thought whilst I had a bit of time I'd make a quick and simple one.

Image Pink Gem Designs - Robin with Mistletoe
Coloured with Prisma Pencils
Hat and Scarf paper pieced
Glamour Dust

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge - Kraft at Christmas
Creatalicious Challenge - Christmas in July
Stamping with the Dragon - Christmas in July
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Hooked on Craft Challenges - Christmas in July
Crafters Companion - Ho Ho Christmas
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in July

I enjoyed making this card and it was so quick, I think I might do a batch of these.

Just sat here flicking between the golf and the Tour de France, blimey Wiggins is flying!!

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.  xx

He looks a lovely traditionally chubby Robin & works superbly with the paper piecing. I like the way you have accented with your whitework too.
