Christmas came early!

I was so excited to see my latest set of Creative Expressions DT stamps arrive today! They are from the Stylish 1 Christmas designed by Sam Poole. When I saw them I knew I had to make a robin! I don't seem to have made cards recently and thought I should 
put that right. The bird is stamped in Coffee Archival Ink and Fired Brick Distress Ink onto white card and a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink at the edges. The sentiment is stamped all over the card in Vintage Photo again and then with Fired Brick on white card and edged as before. I added two red brads to the largest dots either side of the sentiment and 
some wonderful twine to the top of the card. I suspect that my thoughts will be turning to Christmas a lot over the next few weeks - I wonder if I'll actually make a start on the present shopping?! Probably not! Thank you for popping by and have a wonderful week! Gabrielle x
