Robin Christmas


Good morning Bloggers, not so sunny this morning but HeyHo, it's Autumn, my favourite time of the year, and I am loving not feeling like a wet rag! The trees are just starting to change colour and they look so beautiful. We need a good frost now to give us the really vibrant Autumn colours.
I hope all is well in your world, as it is in mine. After work tomorrow night, I break up for 8 days and I mean to enjoy every minute.
My cards for today are just 4x4 minis but I enjoyed making them. When you think about it 'I enjoyed making them' is a daft statement, I ALWAYS enjoy making them :o)


As always, it is my own robin photograph, taken at St. Chad's Water, only 3 miles away from me. It is a lovely little nature reserve that I like to have a little wander round when I haven't got time to go further afield.
White card cut and folded to 4x4, then embossed. Robin printed on to Papermania textured card and text added in Word, then cut with Nestie, as are the Bazzill mats. That's all there is to them. Great for making a lot at once :o)
