... you are enjoying the bank holiday - the weather is lovely up here today (she says as its starting to cloud over !!) as long as it doesnt rain as I've got all my bedding out drying :-). 

Well hubbys on another day shift and the boys have gone over the road to play, so I'm sat with a hair dye on doing this quick post :-).  Glad you cant see me - not a good look!!!!

Anyhoo, I promised something different today from Easter cards and this is it... a Christmas card!!!  One of my resolutions was to make a christmas card a month so I should have four yes??  err no just the one lol.  I saw a challenge mentioned on crafting with cotnobs blog (my latest blog I'm stalking ), and thought I would enter this:

The image is Pink gem, coloured with promarkers and some fluffy stuff for the snow.  The papers I think are eith dovecraft or papermania matted onto pearlised card and ribbon from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:

Winter wonderland - robin redbreast

Right best go and wash this dye off.

Thanks for looking



  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous but oh my Ali, you do know it's only April, lol x

  2. This is a fabulous Christmas card Ali, I love your adorable robin, you've coloured him beautifully and your papers are lovely.

  4. FAB Christmas card, Ali! Love that cute robin image and you've coloured him lovely! Pretty papers and great design! Hugs, Lisa x

  5. hello, helloo! So pleased to see I am not the only person mentioning Christmas at the moment!! I'm so far behind with crafty things that I'll have caught up with last years to do's this coming Christmas - and I'm in the middle of two weeks off which have been filled mainly with happy procrastination! Loved the comment you left for me- thank you so much! I only post the 'good' stuff, there's been a few disasters recently which is why the mojo has turned into something of a sloth I think. Re the book I'm reading, its another fluffy chick lit by Isabel Wolf called Rescuing Rose. Just started it really but its shaping up well. A day on the settee/swing seat outside sunshine permitting, oh and a hair colour for me - these roots of mine are a shocker!!
