Winter Robin

Hello, everyone.  A warm welcome to my newest followers.   I'm back tonight with a winter card - this one is for my parents.  I like to send them a card every couple weeks to bring them some cheer.  I really like this Winter Robin image.  It's from Ike's Art Winter Birds collection.  I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils and tore around the edges of the paper.


The sentiment, "Wishing you a Beautiful Day," is from Crafty Secrets Grand Greetings digital set.  Digital - Grand Greetings - DAS-M40The embossing folder is Sugarplum Ball from Couture Creations.  The kraft cardstock is from Stampin' Up, and the other cardstock and snowflake are from my stash.

  13. Beautiful robin colors, Kitty! There is something so sweet and reassuring about birds - I love seeing them in my "bird area" of the yard - so sweet, and awfully noisy in the mornings! Your card is just lovely. We only have robins here for a day or two as they pass north from their winter grounds. The layers of kraft CS in the back are pretty! hugs, de

  15. Hey Kitty, Just had to come over and tell you how much I like this card. I was going through the rotation over at Ike's and was so pleased that you entered our challenge this fortnight. Your card turned out fantastic. Cool embossed back panel, neat effect with the torn paper too. When I try and do something like that it just looks a mess. Also, your colouring is fabulous my friend. Your parents are sure to love this card.

    Take care!

    Hugs,
    Lisa
