yes, it'll totally be my fault when you have "rockin' robin" stuck in your head all day long!

if it's any consolation, it's been stuck in *MY* head for several days; ever since i made this card for the current challenge (#151) at shopping our stash which is called, "sing it to me" and involves making a card inspired by a song. i chose "rockin' robin" because i found this adorable fabric sticker in my stash and thought it'd be PERFECT for my mother-in-law, who is an avid birdwatcher and also just happens to have four children! :)

(patterned paper: basic grey, pink paislee, prima + packaging by prima and making memories; fabric sticker: crafty secrets; fabric flower and leaves: prima; mistable border sticker (which i haven't misted, this time): pink paislee; rhinestone flourish: recollections; ink: colorbox; vintage: doily; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, gluedots, sewing machine) 

i used the current cardabilities sketch (#98), which is awesome. but then, cardabilities sketches generally are, aren't they? i flipped the sketch horizontally, only because the birdies were going to cover the best part of the ledger paper.

what song is inspiring you these days, and what will you make to show it off? why not hop over to SOS and see what my lovely colleagues have done, whilst you're thinking it over! ♥


  1. Beautiful card, love the robins and your take on the sketch is Great. it looks like a fabulous sketch.

  2. You always do such a bang-up job with these sketches! And what a find with the robin with just the right number of babies! Poifect!

    No fears about the ear worm; I have Jessi's song in my head on auto-repeat now. :)
