A Christmas card and it's a two again!

The challenge at ABC Christmas this time is 'T is for two' 
I am trying to add to my Christmas cards - I really must remember that this is an ABC challenge and if I had started in January I would have a fair few cards by now!

As you know I don't often make CAS cards but this time I have tried to use up some long thin cards that I bought ages ago!

I ran two green Distress markers along my acrylic block and then added a little red stripe, a quick light spritz and then pressed the card onto the block.
A Crafty Individual robin was stamped twice and coloured and I used an Indigoblu greeting to finish the card.

Thanks for looking, Chris

I've tried that same technique but with little success. Yours turned out much better than my attempts. Lovely Christmas card, but, like Helen, I can't get in the mood for Halloween, much less Christmas.
