Simply a robin


I do love cas cards and they are not that easy to achieve, though they look simple. Getting the design right is key. I love this stamp from Sheena Douglass and used it several times last year but not so much this year. I think I have had so many new stamps to use and still have some Christmas stamps waiting to be inked. Oh well there is always next year!

Gorgeous hun - you're right, CAS cards are harder than they look, but this is just super! Love the image and your added but subtle details. Hugs xx

I know what you mean about CAS cards - it is so hard not to want to throw embellies at them as you are making them.
Lovely card Marianne.

You are so right Marianne, CAS cards can be more challenging than most, but you did a great job with this one. I love the Shenna Robin and not sure why I never got round to buying it.

Thanks for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations challenge.
