Cupcake Craft Challenge 120 - Little Red Robin

Are you feeling hungry? Ready for another cupcake? This one I can guarantee has NO CALORIES!!! Yup because it's time for this week's challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge, and it's lil 'ol me who has come up with the theme... Little Red Robin. I'd like you to incorperate a robin in your project/card. I've used a gorgeous stamp called 'Milton with Sledge' from Wild Rose Studio for my card, which I won not too long ago (thanks ever so much for this Faye)! Here's a close up of the image...

I've used my Promarkers again to colour... I just love the brightness of these pens! The layout of my card is from the fab sketch over at Papertake Weekly Challenge, and I've included 'HO HO HO' as my sentiment to fit in with the challenge at Aud Sentiments Challenge, Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is Christmas, at Stamp Something they'd like to see a Christmas Colour Combo and at Kort O Mania it's 'Christmas'.

This week at Cupcake our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp who are offering a lucky random winner a $20 gift certificate with free shipping, plus our monthly sponsor for Cupcake Madness is Wild Rose Studio who are giving away two fabulous stamps! Don't forget to pop over to the Cupcake blog to check all the other lovely DT creations!

Now, I have to show you just one of the little birds that have been visiting my garden recently, isn't she such a cutie? I've been feeding the wild birds for a few weeks now and I finally took a few pictures the other day...

I think it's important that we help out the little birds during winter, especially considering the awful weather we're having! But hey, they really can eat! I can't believe the size of some of the nuts etc the littlest of birds fit into their beaks! Poor Mrs Blackbird hardly gets a look-in! Hope you can join in the fun this week! Thanks for dropping by my blog!

Fab card and your blue tit is a real sweetie, we have them living in a cavity I can't even see how they get in in our front bay wall and they feed on nuts in the front garden. I do have a table in back and front but they never venture on to that funny really. Thanks for sharing bith.

J'aime beaucoup les rouges-gorges, il y en a dans mon jardin (un petit couple), c'est un plaisir de les regarder, ainsi que les mésanges, les moineaux...
Ta carte est une petite merveille et cet ourson est craquant ! Les papiers sont superbes !
Bisous, le soleil est de retour, mais il fait toujours froid lol !

Coucou, Shelly! Ta carte est superbe, l'image est craquante et parfaitement coloriée, et j'aime beaucoup le sketch que tu as utilisé... A vrai dire, j'ai utilisé le même! Et pardon, je n'avais que l'oiseau en tête, pas le rouge, donc ma carte a viré au orange!!! Bisous Delphine
