Well I had packed all my Christmas stamps etc away but I haven't seemed to get into doing anything else even though I have quite a lot of new stash; Flicking through some of the challenges I noticed quite a few mentioning blue and frosty. I just had to have this bird stamp last year but seemed to struggle to do anything with it, I kept trying to make him into a Robin even though he really is a Chickadee and whatever I did I couldn't seem to get the colours right, today after I had stamped him on the blue inky background I decided to make him into a bluebird and I really like how he turned out! The background paper is another piece of ink sprayed card,stamped with a snowflake that was free with Craft Stamper ages ago, added a bit of chunky white frantage and some puffy stuff on the branches, glossy accents on the berries and this is my first Christmas card for 2015! I think I will join in with some of the all year round Christmas challenges this year and then I won't have such a panic making my cards in November !
