Winter Fence Robin

Good Moning lovely blog peeps!
I love the way all these little faces smile at me whenever I come to my blog!
It's a bit like having you all in my front room with me!
Anyhoo, enough of my nonsense!
Here is my Just Inklined card for today!

It's a Christmas Card!!!!!
I thought that since spring had finally sprung you might be just about 
able to cope with a little bit of snow! lol
My inspiration for this card sprang to mind when I saw a little Robin
on the bird feeder in my mum & dads garden! I couldn't get the song
out of my head! My grandad used to sing this to us all the time!


The image I have used is 'Winter Fence Robin'
This is one of the images which are exclusive to 

The image & sentiment were printed on Print Perfect
it's absolutely fantastic for stamping/printing  & colouring on! 
I made a White on White 6"x6" card, 
using Linen Embossed cardstock for everything else!

The image was coloured up with Promarkers, then some glittery accents
 added using Diamond Sparkles & my trusty quickie glue pen!

Then it was cut out with an oval nestie & matted onto a scallop oval.
The embossed panel was done with a Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder.
The snowflakes & flourishes were Marianne Creatables dies.

The Dewdrops were in my stash & the Faux Silk ribbon is from
Dainty Paperie I love that etsy shop!
The font I have used is  a free font called Noel
Thanks for popping in I hope you enjoyed your visit!
