Little Red Robin

Evening Everyone,

Just dropping in with a quick share for two special challenges - Hazel's CHNC Challenge 201 and Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 149 .
This week Hazel is looking for sparkle ... that will be the amber gems sparkling at each corner ... and Di, our favourite Pixie, is, as always looking for snippets ... that's the gold textured scalloped paper layer on the belly band, barely visible but there nonetheless, and the blue ribbon is the last of scrap in the box.

On a Kraft base, the main materials, printed card and topper, are from the Festive Flourishes kit that came free with the current issue of  Papercraft Inspirations magazine - again! It's never-ending and definitely great value. The amber gems, the snippet of gold paper and the ribbon are all from stash.

I'm also submitting the card to Hazel's CHNC Challenge Extra for November 2014.

That's me done for now. The resident handyman has been doing a bit of tiling in the bathroom - nice to see him back and recovered from the sciatica that put him out of action for so many months.

It's not even 5pm but the night is drawing in already. Time for a cuppa, methinks.

Hope you have a lovely evening.

Happy Crafting,
