When you see a Robin...

So, I managed to grab some time to do a bit of crafting last night and used these challenges for inspiration

Darnell's NBUS #7
Dies Digis - Anything with wings
Allsorts Challenge #378 - Use 2+ dies
I love Promarkers #316 - Use a die
Sweet Stampin' - No designer papers


We are blessed with lots of feathered visitors to our garden, one of my  favourites being the Robins,  who are such friendly little birds, so when I spotted .....at Little Claire Designs it went straight in my basket!! He is, of course, coloured with Promarkers.  The shaped card and associated die cuts are from a Couture set and the branch and sign are part of a Spellbinders set. I am delighted to say that these are all Never Before Used Schtuff so fit Darnell's 7th Challenge perfectly.

Right, time's up, something fluffy is looking at me in a hungry way so I had better
go and oblige!! Enjoy your Sunday (and Monday if you are in the UK and not working!!).

 Hope to be back again soon xx

Holy cow Sarah, this is extraordinary!! WOW!! The shape is beautiful, but the fancy pattern with the added glitter has just sucked me right in! Love the little robin too! I don't get many robins on my balcony, seems they prefer to feed from the ground. I do see them while I'm out on the trails though. We have American Robins, beautiful creatures! hugs :)

This is absolutely beautiful Sarah a great robin and perfect layout. We have a few in the garden I think they nested there, but one of them greets me every morning and waits till I put out fresh bird food.

Beautiful card Sarah and I'm so so sorry to hear about Suzy :((((( they truly do become part of our lives ..I was looking at the picture of the pups..how they have grown! and Bowie is the name of our Woody's mother...no idea why she had that name. Take care and lots of hugs Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Gorgeous card Sarah! Wonderful use of the dies to make the background for you very sweet robin. I can see why he fell into your virtual basket. I've never heard you describe your hubby as fluffy before but you should definitely feed him when he asks :D!
