The 2 holly leaves, robins and sentiment are all from this stamp set! Lots of stamping to create that border :-P Coloured with Promarkers and added red glitter glue to the berries

Isn't that chubby little Robin so funny :-D

Blue Bear Christmas Card

Hello!
Today's card I made using a Christmas tag I came across in my stash yesterday! It came off a gift to my mum and it's such a lovely little image, decopatched, velvety material and lovely glittery snow it was begging me to be re used! 



I took the glitter ribbon off the tag and used it lower down on the card, added twine and mini bells. Papers - mag freebies White tag - Tesco  LOTV sentiment stamp Pearls - hobbycraft


So a fairly thrifty and simple make today! Perfect :-)
