Rockin' Robin...

Well the weeks are rushing by, I'll be starting my new job soon - eeek! My eldest, Jack, had a nasty fall off of his bike on Tuesday afternoon. He really hurt his arm and I cleaned him up the best I could but did get him checked by the nurse at the doctors too. The nurse managed to get more dirt out of the cuts than I had the bottle to do and she said hopefully the rest will come out over time. It is pretty nasty bless him. We went to a country park with friends yesterday and we have a friend of Thomas' over for the day today, giving me time to catch up at home and hopefully squeezing in some crafting ;-)

I had a bit of a sort through some of my crafty stash the other day and found a whole box of Craftwork Cards Christmas papers, die cuts, cards etc that I ordered in a sale months and months ago and had forgotten all about, oops! Well here's my first card using some of it and a gorgeous cute bird button that I am pretending is a little robin...

Paper - Christmas Post from Craftwork Cards (last year's design)
Robin button - Little Gingham Bear
Ribbon & twine - stash
Other - kraft card & brown inkpad
