For those of you who were ready for the Letter "E" as the next prompt in the 30 Days of Christmas, Beccy threw out the first of the 4 'wild card' themes and you need to use a bird or animal on your card. The funny part is that I used birds for the "C" prompt (Calling Birds), and you'll see birds again tomorrow (letter "E.") Both of those cards were competed before I chose this image, Baby Robin, printed it twice (one was reversed) and added it to patterned paper I made by reducing and duplicating Beccy's lovely holly garland image.
I've been playing with the new trend toward tall and skinny cards and I make mine so that they fit into a regular, business-sized, envelope. However, I think we'll have to call this one a "long" and skinny card, rather than tall. :-D It was extremely difficult to photograph because it is so long that at least 1/3 of it was always in shadow and the other end too light no matter how I shifted my daytime lamp around.
Love the robins and your slimline card
Love the landscape card Connie, a wonderful result with the fab papers and robins.
Gorgeous, loving the robins and beautiful ribbon.
I love that you've created your own background paper and added the robins to it. I'm sure it was hard to photograph but you've done a great job!
Cards don't get much more festive than this NC, well done! I love the background paper you created, it's a wonderful base for the design. I also like that you've added two little robins to go along with your sentiment. The red ribbon and bow at the top of the card are a beautiful way to finish. Lovely.
Gloriously festive and I love your two turtle doves. Thanks for playing at Polkadoodles, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Stay safe and keep crafting!
Beautiful creative festive card; Thanks for sharing with gem of a craft challenge this week, hugs Nelly dt x
A pretty Christmas card, many thanks for joining us at Stamping Sensations November challenge.
I like your "long" card. I have one that I made yesterday that isn't uploaded as yet. I want to try and catch up on looking at everyone else's cards first. I like that you you mirror imaged the birds so that they look like they are having a bit of a catch up.
The birds are so sweet! Very lovely slimline card Connie!
A lovely card with all the holly and the cute robins. The bow is a nice add. Thanks for joining our challenge at Stamping Sensations.
Super Christmas card, Connie. I love how you’ve reversed one of the robins so that the two face each other. I wonder what they are chatting about. 😊 Thank you for joining in the Crafty Calendar Challenge this month. Good luck!
