Winter fun!

This is the card that I made for my Mum and Dad for Christmas this Year, they love Robins and have one that visits them every morning for breakfast so I thought this image from my Best of La Pashe CD would be ideal.

The image is decoupaged and I also decoupaged the holly and ivy embellishments, the sentiment was computer generated.  I did decorate the inside, but as I was running late (as usual) I did not manage to photograph it before I wrote in it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

ABC Challenge 12 - Inspiration Challenge
Crafty Sentiments Challenge - Winter Fun
Creative Card Crew Challenge 27 - Snow and Ice
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Baby I'ts Cold Outside!!

Top Tip Tuesday Challenge 93 - Fur or Feathers
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge 30 - For the Birds
Delicious Doodles Challenge 19 - Winter Themed Makes

Thank you so much for calling today, I really do appreciate your visit.

This is lovely Pauline. I made at least six cards with this image as I loved it so much - I'm afraid I only got to decoupage one of them - but they all got lots of glamour dust.

Beautiful Christmas card Pauline.
How wonderful to have robins in winter. Where I live they head south in the fall and don't return until spring.
Thanks so much for joining us at Delicious Doodles this time. hugs,x
