Christmas in July and ....

Hobby Art have moved to HOCHANDA.  Well I hope everyone watched the shows ....or at least recorded one of them.  Here are my samples from this month mostly Christmas samples except the  last one which was made with the Nature Trail set  .....

The First two cards are from the new Poinsettia sets
the top one is a bit of vintage decoupage with Seasons Greetings gold embossed matted and layered on gold mirricard .
The Second is just  a very quick image stamped and coloured in with promarkers ...ideal for batch making lot's of Christmas cards when you have a lot to do .....

Next we come to the Round Robin set
Now, anyone who know's me ....or follows my posts on the dreaded Facebook ....know's how much I love Robin Redbreasts Many are confused as to why he appears on our cards each year ...It is said when Christ was born on the fist Christmas Morning he was the first bird to sing at the manger to welcome the Christ child.....he was just a little brown bird who sang the most beautiful song ..... then years later as Christ was dying on the cross the Robin came and sang underneath the cross Three drops of his blood fell onto the Robin's breast and that's how he became the Robin Redbreast that we know and love today .

I hope you like his boots! 

A little mini book card using The gorgeous Round Robin Set and Bah Humbug !
A different take on what you may think is just a Christmas set .  Using Yupo Paper and Alcohol inks this card proves its not ....change the colours and you can make it any season you choose 

Well I hope you like what I have done and I hope it has inspired you  to look at your stamps and think a little outside the box .....
