Christmas Card Club Challenge #5 - Robins

Hi Crafters,

Well it's been an interesting week with the weather hasn't it?
I hope you have all kept safe and well.

Today it is time to share my cards for the new challenge in our Christmas Card Club where the theme this time is...

ROBIN/ROBINS




I have 3 cards this week as I seem to have quite a lot of robin images and kits in my stash and found this a very easy and lovely subject to create with. Thank you Valery for your fabulous choice of theme.
The first and second cards were made using free papers and kits from magazines and the third card is a card making download that I've printed a few times and layered up.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Creations - #361 ATG
Aud Sentiments - #198 ATG + Sentiment
As You Like It - Single or Multiple Layers + Why
I really enjoy creating lots of interest on my cards by using multiple layers and elements. I find this style much easier than a single layer or CAS design too.
Winter Wonderland - Stitching Real/Faux
CHNC Every Saturday - #375 ATG Christmas + Vintage / Shabby Chic

Please take a peek at the other fabulous Christmas cards that the rest of the group are sharing on their blogs, a list of links can be found in the tab at the top of my blog.

Happy Sunday and stay warm!

Lorraine

Delightful cards Lorraine all so different but all fab. I love the use of the papers in the first what a clever idea and variation of stamping on layers. Will give that a go. Zoe x

These are lovely cards Lorraine, I am particularly fond of robins and have a family I the garden. All we have left of the snow are the snowdrifts which seem to be disappearing by the minute. Flooding is the problem now xx
