I realise I've been a little quiet on my blog and social media in general and that's because I have a lot of work on coupled with the final term of the school year so I have got my head down, trying not to get too distracted.
I suppose this blog post ought to come with a warning for anyone that thinks it is too early to share a Christmas card! I have to admit it does feel a little odd making Christmas cards when it's lovely and sunny outside but as the weathr our end has been dull, wet and miserable so it's not made any difference to me and I've happily transported myself to all things festive and shiny!
Svenja has chosen the Daring Cardmakers challenge this week and wants to see anything that flies on your cards. I have chosen a robin but decided on non traditional colours. Glitter and mirri card makes it all the more festive.
Here's a close up of the little robin with all the die cut detail - I admit I wasn't sure if it would work in a colour other than brown but I think I've pulled it off! The gem for the eye adds an additional sprakle!
This card happens to be one of a few that will be aired later this morning on the Sweet Dixie Christmas Show on Create & Craft at 2pm. The die sets are reasonably priced and I can see them being a staple in my personal Christmas card making.
My weekend is a mad one with my teaching starting again coupled with the school summer fete tomorrow and then I have my first Trimcraft demo at The Range in Stevenage on Sunday from 11am.
Have a wonderful weekend whatever you do,
