This week we are creating using the theme of Favourite Things. I used this gorgeous image of Winter Robin from IkeSart. My favourite things are pretty papers, flowers, twinkly things and Christmas so this little robin red breast was perfect. We are very lucky that we get robins visiting our garden quite regularly and they are very inquisitive little birds that come right up to me sometimes if I stay still. I love animals and nature and it is always a complete honour to see such things especially living in a big city. Sometimes you just need to stop for a while, stay still and watch all the wonderful things that happen around you.

My little robin is coloured with Promarkers and then cut out with an Oval Fiskars shape template. I then cut some matting layers from gold and green cardstock and added foam squares to lift off the paper.

The papers are from a magazine supplement that came free with a magazine. I really liked the shaped of the green patterned panel that was part of a multi patterned sheet so layered this on a plainer polka dot and grid pattern paper. The sentiment is from the same pack mounted onto green card and used a corner rounder punch to trim.

Finally I actually USED some of my favouritest Prima flowers that are twinkly fabric poinsettias with a holly leaf and an American Crafts gem brad to hold it all together.

A very colourful Christmas card with that cute little robin. I have two who visit my garden regularly but I would be terrified if they came near me. Hazel x
