...this is one for my step-mum. As some of you know, she lives in a really good care home so I wanted a card that was special, quite tactile and with lots of little extra touches. As she's always been an avid one for watching and feeding the birds this image was a good starting point - she lives on the ground floor and her room has a lot of bushes outside the window so she can still enjoy their antics. Ha, and she squirrels bread away at meal times to feed them :)

- 6" x 6" white scalloped card stock from Craftwork Cards
- image (already coloured!) and papers from Wild Rose Studio's 'Annabelle's Christmas' paper pack
- ruby red backing card from the snippets folder
- ruby red organza ribbon from the ribbon box
- a little silver Christmas tree charm and silver cord
- snowflake die cut and glittered, with a glittered white brad in the centre - just hold the brad in looooong tweezers, heat with a heat gun and dunk straight into glitter, I use an unlabelled pot bought from Art of Craft
- brads, the ruby red jewel ones are made by 'Lush' and the robin one came from Papermania's Henbury Lane 'Poinsettia Embroidered brads' pack
- sentiment from Woodware's 'Christmas Ribbon Tree' set, layered onto ruby red card
- stickles on the ground and little falling snowflakes, although they don't show up in the photo very well
- Josy Rose silver round and heart shaped nail heads
I'd like to enter this card into the following fabby challenges:
St. Luke's Hospice - the theme is 'Traditional Christmas'. It's very sad that this is their last challenge, and I'd like to thank Tara and the DT for such a fun and worthwhile challenge - we'll miss you!
Sarn's Rudolph Day Challenge - where you can win a super wax seal set this month, courtesy of Sam - this is my third and final entry for this month. Still time to enter girls :)
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - where the theme is a card for 'someone special'
and last, but not least, Hiding in my Craft Room (HIMCR) - where the theme is 'Christmas'. This challenge is new to me but it looks like good fun!
Still up to my eyes here doing the old school newsletters :(
