Crazy Robin ...

Another sunny Sunday ... blue skies and Autumn sunshine are my favourite!  The colours of the leaves are so vibrant at this time of the year!

I've moved away from the colours of Autumn to the classic colours of Christmas - I really need to get a wriggle on with my Christmas card making.  I haven't come up with that 'one' design that I like and also enjoy creating but today's contribution might just be the one!  It is not that quick to make but I love the finished card - so I might just make a few more.

I used:
Tim Holtz - Bird Crazy Stamp set
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
Stampin Up - Christmas sentiment stamp
Die-namics High Rise Alpha die 
Versafine - Onyx Black Ink
Red Mirri card
Glossy accents

I am entering the following challenges:
"Less is More" #243 Recipe week - to include Something Shiny 
(I failed to enter last week as I just could not get my mind around the theme - Technology. A bit ridiculous really as I would with technology all day every day!!)
Addicted to Stamps #163 - Addicted to Holidays
Happy Little Stampers

A big thank you to the design team over at Fusion Card Challenge for selecting my card for an Honourable mention - I'm chuffed to bits especially as it was a very different card for me.  This the card they honoured - thank you.



  1. Two fab makes, LOVE those crazy birds and a rather fab image for the second make too


  2. Congrats on the honorable mention! And a fabulous card this time too! Love the coloring you've made on the bird - makes a great pairing with the shiny sentiment!
