Christmas Card Club "Robins"

Good morning all.

A busy day on my blog today, this is the first of three posts...like buses none for ages then they all come along at once!!

Mark and I had a great time in Italy, lots of walking and talking...I need a rest now! Washing is under control, kitchen was gutted yesterday but I need to have a quick general clean round the rest of the house....and the cupboards are bare!! Yesterday morning was spent in Edinburgh with Lora at a University Open Day...it was so warm in the lecture theatres I kept nodding off!!

Two weeks have flown by again and Sylvie has set a theme of "Robins" for us Christmas Card Club gals.

Another special done and dusted...think that is my Mum and siblings all sorted now. Topper from Wild Rose Studios; dies from Spellbinders; papers from Papermania; sentiment from LOTV; border punch from Tonic. Bow, brad, gems and stickles from my stash.

There is a robin on there...holding the envelope, although I almost chopped him off!! Apologies Sylvie this was the only one I could find.

If you'd like to see what the other girls have made you'll find the links in my side bar.

Challenges entered:
CHNC - all wrapped up (clothes and parcel)
CHNC Extra - anything Christmas goes
Aud Sentiments - Christmas + sentiment
Crimbo Crackers - someone special (this will go to one of my siblings)
A Snowflakes Promise - anything goes
