Kajsan's Birds

A very big THANK YOU to everyone who sent me Happy Birthday wishes for yesterday. I had a lovely day with family and friends, a fabulous lunch out and lots of gorgeous presents.  I also managed to finish my Christmas shopping yesterday. Yay! Now just to wrap the pile of presents. That will have to wait until tomorrow as I'm heading to Bournemouth for an overnight visit with my brother today.
First, I'd like to show you some cards I made with some fabulous freebie bird digi images from Kajsans Scrapblog. She also has a store where there are more gorgeous images to purchase.

I thought the adorable birds would look wonderful as robins so, that's how I coloured them. I used my Copics to do this and piped on some white acrylic paint for snow.

The papers are  from LOTV and a pad that a lovely American friend sent me as a gift. The music die-cut is from Memory Box.

I die-cut the skates twice with an Amy Design die I purchased from Oyster Stamps. I cut away some of the red skates and stuck the two together. 

The poinsettias have been cut with a Marianne die and I finished the cards with some red gems and sentiments made with a Docrafts stamp and die.
It was my birthday yesterday and it's my brother's on Christmas Eve so we shall be going out for dinner tonight as a joint celebration and a well earned break from all the festive build up. I hope you all find some time to relax during this busy period too.
I'll be back on Thursday to show you the birthday card I have made for my brother.


  1. Happy Belated Birthday Andree, sounds like you had a wonderful day.
    What a fabulous collection of cards, love the images.

  2. These look fabulous and loving the birds. Enjoy your day with your brother. A tip for you when wrapping presents, instead of sitting on the floor (like I used to do) use your ironing board, saves your knees and back. :)
