A robin is not just for Christmas!

Hi there! I know! Two posts in one day! I am here to share a card I made with a gorgeous new stamp from Crafty Individuals. Dora had drawn the branch as part of a card she was sending to Jean at Crafty Individuals, and Jean asked if they could use it as part of a stamp along with their own robin and flowers. In return she sent Dora some of the stamps and I was lucky to receive one. I stamped it on watercolour card and coloured it with zig clean colour markers. I love Robins and see them all year round so decided to go with the blossom on the stamp and make it into a Spring card. I think this robin will be singing his heart out  to impress his mate! Well done Dora and a big thank you to Jean for being so generous. You can find the stamp here on Crafty Individuals website.
Thanks for looking!

I have to agree with you on this, A robin isn't just for Christmas, there always seems to be one hopping around my garden. This one is a beauty.

What a beautiful card Sally and isn’t Dora a talented lady! When I received the new stamps from CI, this was the first stamp that I inked up and it’s one of my favourites. Your colouring of the stamp is superb and it works in perfect harmony with the background papers. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Lovely card Sally. I've just got that stamp but not inked yet. Nice to know the story behind the stamp too, well done Dora and how nice of Jean. You have coloured the Robin beautifully too.
