GDT WITH CRAFTING BY DESIGNS



Hello Everyone....Happy Wednesday..

Thrilled to be here today as a Guest Designer for  "CRAFTING BY DESIGNS " 

I was asked to be a guest on their bog after my spotlight pick back in May...and chose this date as the theme for their new monthly challenge as it suited me just fine.. and it is...
 "Get ready For Christmas" ..and that sounds like a pretty good idea as it is sneaking up us so very fast...

Here is my card....



This little robin is from a magazine from the UK called "The Peoples Friend" [I think ] and one of my clients ripped it out gave it to me and I just love him...scanned him and got him forever.

Music note die from my buddy in Aussie...florist netting...handmade pinecone...red blossoms...magnolia tag stamped with Christmas greeting from Kaisercraft..punched snowflake...pom pom trim.. corrugated card slathered in gesso..and all ready for Christmas.





A close up of the little Robin...



And...a side view.

Great card Chrissy! Love that image and the music die is so perfect with the bird. I also really like the non-traditional Christmas style of this card.
I wanted to say how much I always enjoy popping by. First of all, the fun image on your header... I love that mouse or whatever he is and he always looks like he's laughing. Then it's so neat to see what your creative mind has come up with next... you always mix it up so it's never the same old thing... love that!

I also meant to say, 'Congrats on the Guest Designer spot!'
