Hunkydory Snowy Season , Robin Redbreast

My card features Hunkydory Snowy Season , Robin Redbreast. Who doesn't love the sight of a pretty robin , they always look especially nice on Christmas cards , my robin cards are usually the first to sell . My hubby says this is a really cute fat one .
The card is a 7x7 , I'm into largish cards at the moment .The diecut holly is by tattered lace . I've added a red bow and the insert (good match me thinks ) is a my craft studio cd , I use these all the time now .

Tattered Lace Christening Dies

Afternoon crafting friends . Two cards to show you today , very similar , one for a boy , one for a girl . I've used the pram in the new tattered lace Christening collection , so pretty ,I cut 3 diffent colours for each then snipped and layered accordingly .  Just added a few pearls and gems to finish  .
The banner is by La la land crafts and the word die has slipped my mind , sorry .

Tiny's Swans Marianne Design

Happy Sunday crafting friends , hope your having a good one , I'm feeling a little better than I was , bad tummy pains .
 I've really enjoyed making this card , and I think it's a bit special , and the person I have in mind to send to is rather special too.
The background paer is a 12x12 glitter velum by docraft called Spring Floral . I ordered about 20 sheets a good while ago , and have used it many times for wedding cards.
I've used mainly Marianne design products , image Swans 2 , Tiny's Swans die , Petra's bridge , Bullrushes (or cattails as the Dutch call them ), Petra's waterlilly.
The other dies are tattered lace mini dies . The sentiment is craftwork cards.
I was given the runaround with the signets , they kept disappearing in my mess craft room. Now one is getting a ride on Mum's back and the other is hiding behind the waterlilly.
