Robin Redbreast

Brrr, it's a cold world this morning but thankfully we've no snow.  It's a snuggle up by the fire day so that's just what I'm going to do as Mr C is working till 5 o'clock (funny shifts on a Sunday!)

My card today is for Sunday with Santa on FB and the theme this week is Birds.  I've used vellum on this card and at long last I've found a glue I can used all over the vellum without it showing through or warping.  I'm probably the last in the craft world to find this out but just in case you don't know it's All Purpose Glue by Collall, brilliant!  I'm still keeping my Christmas cards simple so that Mr Post Office can't charge me a fortune when the big day comes.
