Rockin' Robins!

Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me, I appreciate it lots!  Its Christmas card time again with some cute little Rockin' Robins.  I won this gorgeously cute stamp and die set from Di at Pixie's Snippets Playground - thank you so much Di!

I stamped the cute little robins (from Clearly Besotted Rockin' Robin clear stamp set) in Vintage Sepia Versafine then added the faces in Black Versafine.  I used my Misti and did quite a few but, so far, have only cut these three out using the dies that come with the set.  I coloured the red breasts in with a Lipstick Red Promarker.  The little hats are from the same stamp set again stamped in the Vintage Sepia and coloured with the red Promarker.  I fussy cut them out as it was a little quicker than lining up the die although it would have been neater if I had used the die so will next time when I won't be rushing (hopefully!).  Again using my Misti, I stamped the branches and the music that came with the Rockin' Robin set along with the 25th which is from Hobby Art Christmas Post clear stamp set.  Using a glue pen and glitter I added sparkle to the hats and the branches.  The sentiments are also from the Clearly Besotted set and I stamped them on snippets of white card, trimmed them down and edged them with the red Promarker.  I glued everything together and job done!

I would like to enter the following absolutely fabulous challenges:

Scrappymo's April Rudolph Day's Challenge - Anything Christmas - I won last months challenge - thank you so much Scrappymo!   Will make my next months entry with the fabulous stamp set I won. It hasn't arrived yet so I couldn't use it this time - it has a long journey to get here!
