Red, red robin...

Just the one card today and so funny as I actually saw a robin in the garden this afternoon - not often that happens!

This card uses a cute little robin stamp that I got in a DoCraft goodybag last year, matched with some robin papers from the Papermania 'Festive Frolics' set and some metallic green paper which I got from a pound shop.

It took me ages to decide on the papers and I'm still not sure about it but never mind.

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Week #168
Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge - Christmas is coming
Sparkle's Forum Christmas Challenge - Robins


  1. Hi Em, love your little robin & the papers. We have a robin who visits our garden all year round, I love to watch him. Answering your question about removing peel offs from card I have to admit it's a bit hit & miss. I think it all depends on what card you use, the smoother the better & to peel them off very slowly. Thanx for visiting my blog & leaving such a lovely comment. I'm now a follower of yours.

    Thanks Sally for your tip about peel offs - I might try it and see how I get on.
