Quick Cards!!

 Hi everyone.  I'm sitting here feeling warm and toasty and rather smug as I've been off work today and didn't have to travel into London with all this snow!!  Won't be feeling quite so smug tomorrow as it's still snowing as it has been all day so I'm sure tomorrow will be even worse!! 
I've been catching up with my Christmas card making today and have made lots of quick makes! These were sort of quick makes but did involve quite a bit of colouring.  This awesome robin image is one of three digi images that I won from Delicious Doodles in a recent Winter Wonderland challenge. 
 As you can see, I've left the layout  very simple, using some fab Memory Box papers - I think from the Mistletoe collection! (I've tried to keep them in their sets but am failing miserably - you should see my craft room - it's carnage!)

Love the paper on this one!!  I glossy accented the berries in all the images and then added a touch of gold stickle but this isn't showing up in my pics.

I'm entering into the following challenges:

Cards for Men - Masculine and Christmas  (I was thinking to use these for male recipients as they're not cuties!)
Crafty Calendar - Winter with the optional extra of snowflakes - Robins are the epitome of winter for me!!
Totally Gorjuss - Trees
Crafty Creations - Christmas

And it's still snowing!!

Oh but they are cuties! I see what you mean though, not girly cuties. And they are coloured beautifully. The berries look edible - if your'e a bird of course! Lotsalove, Lesley
