Is it too early?

I wonder if it is too early to start making Christmas / new year cards?
But considering that I am always short of a few cards, come December, why not?

I used a die to remove a panel from the front and used the background digi ( A day for Daisies) to create a beautiful winter scene with five robins.
The images are all colored with Copic markers. The golden snowflakes are heat embossed.

Things with wings

First of, a big shout out to all the wonderful artists who not only make beautiful things but also maintain a blog and provide us with inspirations!
As I have found out, making cards and blogging about them are two very different things..Making is easy, blogging ...not so much 😀
Anyhow, here is an accordion card that I made. Such cards were quite the rage sometime back - everyone was making them and now, suddenly, not at all. I wonder why?

Of course, the stamps are Tim Holtz's Crazy birds.
They have been colored with Copic Markers. After trying a number of different coloring tools, I have found Copic markers to be the most versatile. But I am still learning ..

I love the expression on these birds, don't you? Especially the middle one 😉
