Christmas Card Club - "Feature a Robin"

Good morning all.

It was a lovely day yesterday...so why did I spend the afternoon making a mess in the craft room??

It's time for our next challenge over at the Christmas Card Club, it was Margaret's turn to choose the theme this time and she's asked us to "Feature a Robin". This is the first of several I made featuring robins...it was a case of strike while the irons hot!!

The papers and topper are all from My Mind's Eye and were a magazine freebie. Snowflake die from Spellbinders and Merry Christmas from Memory Box. Card is highlighted with some Glamour Dust.

Flat for posting and finished inside too :)

You'll find the rest of the girls listed on my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.

Challenges entered:
CHNC Extra - anything Christmas goes
Totally Papercrafts - make it shine
ABC Christmas - D for die cuts
Crafty Cardmakers - birds/birdcages
Completely Christmas - anything goes

  10. Fabulous! Love the wee robin perched on the birdcage! It is so sweet.
    I have never seen a MME paper with birds...that paper is simply sonderful
    Lovely card Carol and smart idea to make it flat for posting. I have made a careful list of my hand delivery cards that I can plump up with anything I like...and those that need mailed and must be flat...so I will be making lots of flat this year too!

    Wonderful card!
