Robins & Baubles !!

Hi There Crafty Bloggers

I have had lots of rest and feel better after my wee virus !! . The cure was snuggling up on the sofa , colouring in and watching the original clash of the titans. I have treated myself  tonight to some Cheesecake ice cream yummy . I have used this lovely LOTV stamp little festive robins. So much detail to colour.

I also bought my first Marianne dies ,the bauble and star,  they are so gorgeous and go through the cuttlebug really well ! I have been playing with the cheesecloth again ! I dyed it by stamping distress ink onto it and put it behind the die cuts which I cut out with the papers that I used on the card.

I have added a lovely sentiment from LOTV and I dyed some seam binding with the distress inks too !!

I finally got my cropadile and made little eyelets for the baubles and ribbon to go through ! Don't need to use a hammer now lol ! 

This is the top inside where I have made a lovely pocket for a gift voucher .

This is the inside bottom with another LOTV sentiment .

Lastly a picture on it's side can you tell I enjoyed making this one with all these pictures lol.
