Christmas card + a welcome

Good morning Bloggers, and welcome to new follower Caroline :o)
Time to get back to making Christmas cards so here is a set of 4, each using 2 of my own photographs.





The background on the second card is a photograph I took at Darley Park, near Derby,  3 years ago. The others were taken at Elvaston Castle Country Park, also near Derby,  18 months ago. The robins were taken at St. Chad's Water, just about 3 miles from me, in January this year. I feathered the robins in PSP and added them and the text to the background photographs at the same time. Christmas tree die is Marianne and the rest are Memory box, all cut from Bazzill which is a good match for the robins breast. All cardstock is white linencard, cut and folded to 5x7 :o)
