It is a wonderful group of ladies to be working with and such a fabulous store too.
There are just so many crafty goodies to choose from!!!
I decided to use one of the really cute new Christmas releases from Wild Rose Studio called Christmas Robins. Aren't they sweet!
I also used a sentiment set by Whimsy Stamps called Season's Greetings Notables 7. I actually cut the circle out and put it on top of another greeting from the set. I wanted to use this sentiment because I thought it went so well with the robins, but I also wanted this background because I wanted to try colouring in the stripes with my copics to match the copic colours I used on the main image. I was really happy with how this sentiment turned out. Although after all the time it took to use 3 different greens on each line and 3 different reds I realised too late that I maybe would have got just as good a result if I'd drawn around the circle with a grey copic marker. Oh well I'll try it that way next time :)
The paper is gorgeous and is from a pad called Joyous by Authentique. I haven't tried that many paper pads YET :) but I'd have to say that Authentique is my favourite so far. Beautiful prints and I love the solid coordinating colours too, their paper is lovely and smooth and of a really high quality in my opinion. I will be buying more :)
