Robin Owl

And here's my third card to show you today...

This is Cozy Winter Owl from Meljens Designs, but yeah I coloured him as a robin.
Have you ever coloured an image and you sort of have blinkers on and colour something differently to how most others would? Faye, yes I know you have, snowball/bauble, nuff said, even though it was genius!
Anyway, I printed this image a while ago, I often print in batches so that I have an image to hand, and this was printed for my christmas image batch. I usually write the name of the image on the reverse in pencil, except this time I didn't do that obviously.
So I grabbed the image, and I saw a bird in a winter scene, so in my head that meant a robin, so I happily coloured the little chap in and made my card.
I always put my finished cards to one side so that a) any glue can dry completely, and b) it reminds me to take a photo. That is unless i've made a card for my husband or for my son, in which case their cards get to dry in a secret drawer where neither of them can walk in and see it.
Anyway, my husband walks into my craft room and sees a couple my latest makes, "Jo, they're great, but i've never seen an owl with a red belly before". That's when I looked at the image again and realised.

He still looks good as a robin right?

The spotty paper is by Kaisercraft (Christmas Tradition) The swirly sentiment is one of the first stamps I bought many moons ago and is by Papermania.
