Christmas Robin

Hello again!

I'm back sooner than I thought I would be!  I have another day off work today (I do have a job, promise!) and after yesterday's success I thought I would have another go.

I mostly do Christmas cross stitch and have several little kits that I have stitched but not done anything with yet so I thought I would dig them out and see what I could do with one.

This is a Mouseloft mini kit that I stitched back in October. I framed it with gold mirror board and Dovecraft paper. This time I stuck it to some plain card first as I noticed that the pattern was showing through the Aida on my card from yesterday - I still have a lot to learn!  I wanted to use some of the things I bought at the NEC so I hand stamped the sentiment with an Inkylicious stamp in gold ink and used some holly leaves to try and compliment the background paper.

I am going to another craft show tomorrow at Sandown Park and have gone from having very little on my list of things to buy to having a list as long as my arm!  

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Completely Christmas - ATG with a twist make it cute
