Christmas Robin

Hi there 🙂  There’s a new challenge going at the Sheepski Designs Facebook Group!!  As always, it’s ATG with a Sheepski image (found at the Etsy store), but if you’re stumped as to where to start, we have an optional theme….this month, it’s “winged things”.  Andrea has a ton of images with wings…..from cars to butterflies to pigs……but I chose this sweet Winter Robin for my card.  I’ve been making Christmas cards since January, so I don’t get caught in a panic when the season hits, and since it was +40C outside, I figured it was just the time to make another one, lol.  I colored the image with my Copics, then cut it out with a Xyron stacking die.

  My mojo was going strong up until this point…..then poof!!! Gone!! I had no clue what to do next!  I muddled around with papers and dies until I came up with this.  I used a curvy edge die on the warm red print piece, then a Tim Holtz holly die to decorate the blue.  I took my white gel pen and made the snowflake pattern behind the holly to match with the red paper, then cut a silver Merry Christmas sentiment to coordinate with the silver ball accents.  I was pretty happy with the end result, considering Mr. Mojo took off on vacation at the most inopportune time!!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
