Welcome back to Robyn's Nest!!
Well, today is my final day guesting with the chicks in the Hen House (sigh)
I have had a lot of fun this month!!!
My thanks to Lori and Leanne for having me!! 
Here's a link to the challenge for ya!

For my last card, I chose to use this fabulous new set from 

I absolutely love this set! Oh my gosh! Too cute!
I colored this up with several Copic markers and die cut it out with a die from Papertrey Ink
I love using burlap, so when shopping at "The Lob" (Hobby Lobby) I saw this fun paper pack! Ack! Meant for ME!! 
I was all done with this card, and putting away my mess, when I spotted this cute, CUTE little squirrel in another set, so I quickly stamped him out and colored him up! I know he doesn't really have on a sweater, but, I saw where I could give him one! After fussy cutting him out, I used a pop dot and stuck down  :) HaHa!!
I just love the squirrels in 
here are a couple close up shots for you!
Thank you so much for stopping by and hanging with me this  month!!

Guest Designing with Krafty Chicks Challenge

Hey there!!! 
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!
I'm back with the Krafty Chicks Challenge week 3!!

Krafty Chicks Challenge 

This week, I am back in the Hen House with this Clean And Simple (CAS) card using Unity Stamp Co and their Kit of the Month for August 

~Illustrated by Jeanie Marie Hays~ 

I did not intend for this to be as it is, but, once I stamped the sentiment, I decided to just leave it alone..I really love how this card came out with absolutely no coloring!! I am not a CAS card maker at all. As a matter of fact, I am so happy with the new slimline cards being made right now. They give a card maker like me So much more room for embellishments! 
For this card, I used 2 different stamp sets. 
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!! 
I look forward to next week for "anything goes" 
Don't forget you can join in all the fun by linking up your own card!! 
See you back here on September 24th
Inky Hugs, Robyn

After coloring her up with my Copics, I did end up paper piecing her scarf.

 Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!
Happy Labor Day Weekend!!!
It's the first weekend of the month!! YAY!

Thanks Cheryl, for your sweet comments!

ok, onto the hop!!!


Our cue for this month is Friendship! 

I have several, amazing, life long friends!

and my new crafty friends, too 

This card is for my longest friend, Jennifer Busto

Jennifer and I met when she was a young girl (12) and we are still friends today.

Her birthday is on the 29th and I bought this set especially for her

Cherished Friends  

I started out stamping them on PTI white card stock...Jenn is very much a girly girl, so it had to be pink!!
Jennifer's hair is much shorter, than this, but, mine is pretty close in the gray department

The sentiment in this kit was very long, so I carefully cut it after stamping
 Jennifer is like my little sister, and she means the world to me!!
I hope she likes card ;)
Did you arrive her from  
Sweet Dawn had a birthday!! Happy birthday, Dawn!!
Up next in the hop is my friend 
Inky Hugs, Robyn   

Friends, please know that our hops are not sponsored. (Although, we know Unity Stamp Co. lovingly approves) Because your support is so valuable and so appreciated, prizes are given from the creators own private stash of Unity stamps.

Guest Designing with Krafty Chicks


Hey there!!
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!
I am super stoked to be guest designing with Krafty Chicks Challenge, and hanging out in their "hen house" for the entire month of September! 
I was so surprised when Lori Turner contacted me, and asked!
Thanks, Lori for the invitation!!!!
Here's the link for you

My first card of the month is for my cousin Melody, in Illinois..
We grew up together, very closely, and here we are in our old age, still best friends!!
We try to vacation together, and so far we have been on 7 cruises..the last one in March of this year, before the world went crazy!! 

Ok...enough chit chatting!! 
Here's what I came up with

I wanted to make Melody a new card since it's been a while. 
I didn't have any ideas in my head, so I went to the cards my crafty friends send me for inspiration. 
Lisa Bzibziak sent me this gorgeous card last year. She is an amazing card maker, and I claim to be her number one #fangirl

Almost an exact copy 💖 (hers is prettier) 
Here's a shot of the inside of the card, too 
The details are as follows....
I used, My Favorite Things, Pure Innocence line of stamps (love them)
The set is called "You're My Person" 

I started with a piece of heavy Papertrey Ink white card stock
I cut a heart out using Lawn Fawn stitched hearts, and a piece of pink velum..
I cut some plaid card stock with a fancy scalloped die
I stamped the girls image on white card stock, and colored the skin and hair with Copics. 
I used the same paper pack to paper piece their clothes, then used the matching die to cut them out...
I used a few tiny white flowers, some sweet butterflies, and, stitched clouds to complete the card.
I just love how it turned out, and I know she will, too!!

If you have any questions about what companies I use, please ask in comments!
I try to keep my posts short, but would love to hear from you!!
That's it for me this week!!
See you back on September 10th for my 2nd card!!
Inky Hugs, Robyn
