Feeding Robins!

Hello Everyone and hoping you are all well and have had a good day whatever you have been doing.

Thank you all who left lovely comments on my little bags. It was fun doing them and I was delighted that they were like by Dale and Amanda.

Dale asked me to make a 21st card for her step-granddaughter, and that is what I've been doing for most of the day. I have to have it ready to post down within the next couple of days, yeah she didn't give me much time for something so special, and you know what it's like, you have Masses of stash, but of course not what is required for the card that is planned.  I had to take myself off to the craft shops this morning hunting for feathers, thankfully I found some. I don't make many age cards and so didn't have numbers either.  Should have it finished tomorrow though.

My card tonight is made with one of the lovely stamps from LOTV's latest launch for Christmas.
I think this is such a lovely image and was my first choice when I saw the stamps.
Prismascolour Pencils
Kraft card base
Bazzil Card
LC Sentiment
Gold mirri
Dovecraft Tis the Season Paper
Xcut Star and Small Scalloped Circle dies
Gold Ribbon from stash
Pearls and Red Gems from Dovecraft Tis the Season range
Gold Gems from stash
Liquid pearls
Gold Stickles

Alistair is out tonight to the Astronomical Society's meeting, some Prof. from Jordrel Bank giving a talk, it sounded very interesting, but better than that, I get control of the telly zapper.

Have a good evening and see you soon,
Hugs Kate x

Beautiful card Kate. I really need to use my LOTV stamps a lot more than I do. Recently I have been doing more paper techniques than stamping. However, Christmas cards are in the offing at some point in the next few months and I love stamping those. Enjoy your Evening. Hugs Rita xx

Hi Kate. A super card and such a cute wee image. As for "hump day" it's just a Wednesday....middle of the week so is regarded at the hump.....if you get my drift? LOL. Sounds more interesting than what it really is.
Hope you enjoyed last nights viewing with total control of the remote!
Hugs Erika.

Amber Holder said...

So cute! I like how you've tilted the image and how the bird paper matches the theme of the image so well :)

Best crafty wishes!

Beautiful and adorable Christmas card Kate. I love the papers and that sweet little boy image is so cute.

Thank you for your nice comment you left on my blog, I really appreciate it. The one thing that I enjoy most of blogging is that I meet nice people like you.

Hi hun, thanks for your gorgeous entry (unfortunately as it's backdated we can't consider it for the prize) at Lili's Little Fairies Hugs xx

Jennifer said...

Your card is so pretty, Kate, therefore it is such a pity that it won't be elible for our prize, as it was posted on your blog before our current challenge began.

Thank you for playing along with us, and we would love to see your future creations at Lili's Little Fairies.
