Kissing Robins

Good Morning!
It must be Thursday as I have a Just Inklined card to share!
I'm sorry if it's too soon but it's a little Christmas card!

The image  have used is the lovely Kissing Robins 
perfect for Bird Lovers! Oh & Christmas too,
if you don't mind me using the C word! lol
You can find them here at Just inklined.

I cut out the image with a circle die & inked with Brushed Cordouroy & Vintage Linen
Distress inks then  used my ususal mix of Flexmarkers & Promarkers to colour them up.

The card base is 6x6 inches, Kraft Cardstock, from Southfields.
The papers I have used are from the First Edition Christmas Village
 paper stack. I just love them, the colours are great!
The twine & button twine are from my stash as are the little bells!
The sentiment was die cut from the base dp too.

Hi everyone  hope all is well with you!
I have a little quick & simple card to share today!
This was made using one of the little extras from the 
La Pashe Mens  Decoupage sheets 

I love using up all the little bits you get as extras to make quick & simple cards.
Perfect for getting you out of a jam too!
This one is an A6 card base with everything matted onto some black card-stock.
I added some gems which I coloured black with a promarker, then wrapped a
little bit of twime around the image.

The papers I have used were from La Pashe too!
These sheets are available pre-printed or if you can't wait for the
 mail man, you can purchase the download & have it instantly.
Thanks for looking!

The doilies are from my stash. The ribbon & buttons came from
