Rudolph Day January 2017

Doesn't seem two minutes since it was January 2016 and we are now on the first Rudolph Day challenge of 2017 over at Scrappy MO's

This little fellow made his first appearance on our Allsorts challenge on the 31st December where the challenge was something new, as he was then.
Well he is back again with another design of card.
While I was at it I made a few more.
So there are six in all.
The embossing folder has no name as they were sent to me by a lovely blogging Friend, quite some time ago actually but I had forgotten where I had put them but while hunting for some other lost item, I came across them and decided to use them for this image.

I dabbed glitter glue over the leaves, which is not good for a photo but I hope you get the idea.
The Robin is part of a set by Hobby Art and yes he will be appearing again later on.
I actually stamped the wings again and paper pieced them to give a bit of a lift but to be honest it didn't make too much difference.
Sentiment - Peel off.

I suppose it sounds like my craft room is a bit of a tip but it isn't really, I just move things around and swop them from one place to another that I forget where I have put them.

Good to see this cute little fella again Kath, your design is lovely with the fab embossed panels.
I often lose thing in my craft room too...probably because it IS often a tip...I'm a very messy worker no matter how often I tidy up...and that's usually when I can't find stuff!

Six wonderful cards. I love that sweet robin and when I enlarged the photo, I could see clearly your paper pieced wings. I am sure if I was not almost 63, I would not have had to enlarge it...lol

Thanks for taking part in the January Rudolph Days Challenge.

This is a fabulous card Kathleen. I really like how you've embossed it on both sides and stamped in the middle, it frames the image beautifully. The Robin is such a little cutie too. I've just noticed that you live in West Yorkshire, so do I :) Happy crafting, Sandra x

Goorgeous Rudolph card Kath, that is one super robin and I like the embossed panels xx

Mrs A. said...

This is a nice plump looking robin and beautifully coloured. We have 2 robins visit in the garden. The doc got waylaid this morning halfway through putting the feed out for the birds and I spotted one of the robins helping himself from the bowl he had left on the garden table. He was perched on the fork and happily stuffing himself. Course by the time I thought to get the camera he had flown off. Hugs Mrs A.

Sally H said...

Happy Rudolf day, Kath! These are gorgeous cards! I saw three robins for the big garden bird watch this morning, but none of them were that plump or they might have taken on the blackbirds!

LesleyG said...

Love those cute Robins, and set off beautifully against the embossed glittery background, happy days xxx

sally said...
