Lucky the Robin Freebie

As always Christmas comes early in the world of crafting...  it has to really or we would never get anything done.  So today as a freebie I give you Lucky the Robin, a jolly little (or large) red-breasted fella, perfect for all you Christmassy needs.

Why Lucky I hear you cry...  well that has a funny story attached...  I was trying to find a nice festive name from my little robin.  I used a search engine to find Christmas names but none of them suited, so I spied an Elf name generator, so I clicked on the link which took me strangely enough to the BBC Shropshire Christmas Santa's Little Helpers' Name Generator, which is quite a mouthful to say, and even harder to write.  I thought okay give it a whirl, anything for Shropshire!!!  I put robin in the name section and redbreast in the surname section (you must not use capitals for some reason) and pressed the 'Show Me' button.  The name revealed was.... wait for it.... wait for it....
Lucky Floppy-Cheeks
 So who am I to argue with that name????  Lucky Floppy-Cheeks the Robin, a perfect Christmas name if ever I heard it...  LOL  By clicking on the image above you can download Lucky in a jpg and a png coloured version, and of course the lineart digi stamp. 

Maybe if you are 'Lucky' there could be some more festive freebies this week...  so remember to pop back when you have a moment to spare... you never know what might be awaiting... ho..ho...ho!!!

  6. This Robin is too cute! The Name Generator was a mouthful to say - of course I had to try it! But is it is as much a mouthful as my generated name .... Cutie Monster-Sprout?
