Another CAS Robin

Today's challenge at Crafty Little Fairies is Christmas in November and we have a great prize this week of a £10 voucher from

Now for those of you who know me and know Squirrel as well will realise that Squirrel must have had quite a shock when she saw I had chosen to go with a CAS card rather than something more fussy and fancy. I loved making the last CAS one with this image so much I was determined to try another in a different style. The layout came about when I was tidying, something I do al the time I am crafting, believe me I am one of the world's tidiest crafters. These paper strips were lying beside the trimmer and I thought how good they looked together, rather than in the bin. Both my robin cards sold last Wednesday so I want to make some more. I am really enjoying making some cas cards at the moment as well as my usual fussy and fancy style.

I have a long list, some essentials and some must haves, money from my Birthday and craft fair sales so will share pics of my new goodies at the weekend.

There will be a second card publishing at 11.30, a guest designer spot.
