Cute Robin

Good Morning Everyone, 
I can't believe it's the 1st November already! The big fat man in a red suit comes next month!! I really need to get a wriggle on with my Christmas cards, I haven't made nearly enough! 
I'm not quite sure what I was thinking with this one! I liked it when I'd finished but looking at it now...mmm!!
I've used the Cute Robin Set from Digi Stamp Boutique and coloured him with my promarkers. I added little red pearls for the berries.

The background papers are from LOTV. I've finished with a Spellbinders poinsettia and a bit of ribbon.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

Papertake Weekly - Sketch
Divas by Design- Feeling Festive
Digi Stamp Boutique - November Challenge
A Gem of a Challenge - Polka Dots/Spots
Totally Gorjuss - Things with Wings
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

Thanks for visiting me today and for all your lovely comments, I really appreciate them.
