Festive Robins

I'm not actually sure if I've used this stamp before.  I've had it for months (I think I got it last Easter), and had my eye on it for a while before then.  But, like most of the stamps I buy, it went on the pile of 'to be used' before more were popped on top, and it moved down the pile out of sight.

But I saw it there in my catalogue and decided it would be perfect for today's theme of "Friends and Family" at ABC Christmas Challenge.  It's a versatile image that I decided was ideal for a couple, because it's not too feminine, and is quite traditional rather than cute.

I've kept the embellishments fairly light too, just a spot of lace, and a button tied with some red twine.

So pretty Annette - that stamp is lovely, I have those papers.... somewhere! - there seems to be a lot of Christmas crafting going on this year - if you're anything like me I learned last year that a box full of birthday cards doesn't make a Christmas lol hugs Judith x
