A Cheery Hello - Robin Card

I was so pleased to have some time to craft the other day, and one of the things I did was color this lovely bird image.  Isn’t he so cute!?  The stamp is named Robin, so I colored him as such, but I have a lot of other ideas of birds that this image more closely resembles, so I hope to try those ideas out soon!


I thought this patterned paper went well with the colors of the bird, but the yellow piece and kraft were from small snippets in my scrap box.  It really worked out well.

Supplies: Elizabeth Crafts Robin 2 stamp, Power Poppy Potted Primroses (sentiment), Memento and Versfine black inks, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Echo Park Happy Camper 6x6 paper pad, Gina Marie Designs X stitched circle dies



I would love to play along with the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity - Tweet This Challenge , Pixie’s Craft Workshop -Snippets Challenge #327, and SimonSaysStamp’s Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.  I encourage you to check out this challenge blogs, and thank them for providing inspiration for cardmakers.

THANK YOU so much for your visit today!

You can find me on facebook or pinterest, too.

What a lovely card Heidi! Really fresh and of course we all love a robin!

Ha, I visited my friend today and when I parked up in the driveway she got me to look under the front wheel arch of her car. She has a pair of robins building a nest, just within the past 24 hours. Have advised her to sort it out now before they go any further (I would leave it and let them carry on 'cos I'm soft like that!) and hope they find somewhere else to build - otherwise her car will be static whilst the babies hatch and then fledge!

Hugs

I haven’t visited for a bit; I just got back from CA, and am catching up on my visits and comments. Your bird is colored so nicely and I love that big circle focal point.
