When the Red Red Robin went a bob bob bobbing along

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Happy Easter Long Weekend and if you are not going away - a long crafting weekend may be on the plans as the weather does not look that good on the forecast, however they are not always right so fingers crossed.
Today sees the next challenge at the

with the theme this week being hosted by little old me :), the theme is

Robin Redbreast

We are sponsored this challenge by the fabulous

who are offering the winner a gift voucher of £10

So here is what I created for my design team inspirational piece but don't forget to hop on over to the main challenge site to see the rest of the design teams gorgeous creations.
I only have one robin image and he always comes out for these sorts of challenges, but I do love him.  The base layer on this card and the contrast is a deep green.  The papers are so old I am not sure which stack they originally came from.  The nestie die holds the sentiment and the spray of holly is from a table centre piece that I cut up.  It was a sale bargain I have to say.

Here is a close up of the little robin coloured in copics
As always, I would like to thank all my wonderful followers and visitors for their lovely inspiring comments, which allow me to hop over and visit you in return.
