I love getting free things, especially digital images that are as beautiful as the images offered weekly by Just Inklined. Here is the freebie this week: Christmas Robins:
Kissing Robins. Well being an American and being raised in Iowa and now living in Nebrasks everybody knows Robins migrate and are not around during the cold snowy months. So being the bright child I am, I sent Jak an email saying the image wasn't realistic as Robins are not around to be placed in snow covered houses. I am not sure I would have wanted to be in her office when she got my email.
Jak sents back a very polite email stating that in England they have Robins in the Winter...I responded politely stating it must be just too d....n cold in Nebrasks for the Robins to hang around. Now I need to find out what is up with this LOL I did a Google search of Robins native to the United Kingdom and they have the most beautiful bird called a European Robin that does indeed stay all year round and apparently frequents the lovely English gardens and sings beautifully. I actually think they are prettier than the North American Robin...I love learning new stuff.
I have to keep remembering I am the lone American on the Team, although the Guest Designer this month Joyce is from Canada,
Enough about that, isn't this the most wonderful freebie. I of course colored the beautiful European Robins in the colors shown on the website I found called Birds of the English Gardens. I thought it would be pretty framed with my scalloped spellbinder Don't wait another week to start getting the newsletter so you don't miss out on another single free image and news about all that is going on at Just Inklined. I didn't want to detract from the beautiful birds so just used a MS loopy corner punch for the dp over the white main layer.
A beautifuil ribbon and red spiral flower spritzed with Glimmer Mist. I really like the way it turned out.
Have a great day.
