Feed the Birds

Welcome to my new followers, thanks so much for following and thanks to all my regular commenters too for your lovely comments. A quick post from me before getting ready to go out so will catch up with you tomorrow.

I still have 16 Christmas cards to make so these LOTV die cuts come in very handy. Mind you the boy was only half coloured so out came the Promarkers to finish off the colouring. I've used HOTP Forever Christmas papers, some glittery ribbon which I won in a mini candy from Mandy Fox, red card candi and Woodware punched holly leaves. I like to use a fine embossing tool on the leaves to add some definition. Sentiment is from Crafty Bitz.

Hi Marianne, Gorgeous card! Love this sweet image and traditional Christmas colours. Think these die cuts are going to be very handy because I still have a few to make and not much time to do it in!!

Hope you have a lovely afternoon.

Lovely card Marianne. Great tip about embossing a fine line down the centre of the holly leaves. It makes them jump right off the card! Helen :o)
