Rockin Robin.

Hi Guys, hope you are all ok, thanks for popping by and all your fabulous comments.
Hope you like my card, I thought I would have a go at a tent card, it was great to make, the stamp is  Molly blooms robin on tree branch designed by the amazing Clare Rowlands
available through Sir Stampalot. I love this new Christmas Collection.
I have coloured in using Distress inks, and all the diecuts are off  the Cricut.
Oh yes and my Robin does rock!

Hello there Chris, so lovely to have you back and with a gorgeous card, beautifully coloured and Rockin!
I think your lack of mojo was catching, can't do any thing right at the moment (and it's so much easier to blame someone else)
Oh and by the way, I've come to the conclusion you look very much like Kate Silverton, hope you don't mind but I think your photo looks so much like her :0) xxx

Hi Chris

Yet another fab card. I love your tent card (mine normally have a pleat on the base, but this looks much neater, so will try this out if that's OK).

The robin is image is seriously cute, I don't know about the robin rockin', but your Christmas cards definately are!

Wow Chris this sure is a rockin card - love the colouring of the robin and the style of it with the embellishments.
We went to Abbotsbury Swannery today - what a great place. Hundreds of swans, Canada Geese and smaller ducks. Mum loved it too. I have given the place your love.
Speak again soon. B xxxx

Cherie said...

Hi Chris, thanks for stopping by, I love the little robin card and think your tent card is ace. I didn't get to spend the day with Clare, she wasn't available to go to Whichcraft last Saturday that's why I got to make samples and do the demoing in her place quite an honour. She sent Paula some of her cards to display they were amazing.
I did try for the class in oct but it's booked oh well maybe next time.
Hugs cherie
