All about the Bunnies!

Hi there, thank you for visiting.....its been a busy old week for me here, and, having been a bit preoccupied with "behind the scenes" DT stuff, I completely forgot to do my own DT post...big ooops!!!  So, here goes,
The theme for the new CUTIE PIE CHALLENGE is
Anything but a Card with Easter Bunnies
we are kindly sponsored by the wonderful
who, as well as offering a lovely prize, also let us have some fabby images to play with.
 
For my own DT project, I made this wall hanging decoration. The image is coloured with promarkers, the papers are from Dovecraft, the sentiment is my own creation using Zitpy-do font and have used an Xcut scalloped edge border punch. Buttons and ribbon from stash.
 
Hope you all have a blessed and peaceful Easter weekend......go easy on the choccies, and for those (like me who have to work on public holiday - keep your chin up!!!)

Return of the Pink Hair!

Hello there, hope you had a lovely weekend, pity the weather wasn't a bit nicer though. Thank you so much for the comforting comments that you lovely folks left on my last post, regarding a little accident I had....happy to report that I'm feeling loads better, the bruises are nearly away and the palm of my hand is good and scabby(so no high-fives for Lisa at the moment, lol)
 
Anyway, one of my work friends asked me to make a birthday card for her niece,  and whilst I did struggle at first to find something age appropriate, I thought that this A Random Fan image would be just fine, and I couldn't resist popping of the lid of one of my pink promarkers to do the hair.
The pink gingham paper is a freebie download from Bev Rochester, the dotty paper is from a Me to You stack, the sentiment is my own work using Zipty Do font, the butterfly die is from Marianne Creatables, the ribbon came from my local haberdashery, and the gems from stash.

I would like to enter this into:

simon says stamp wednesdaychallenge - happy birthday

Ok, I'm off to do the dishes now, bye for now xx

all very clean and simple!

Hi there and thanks for stopping by! How can it be Friday again, where did that week go, hope all is well with you.
 
I'd took a bit of a stumble in the car park at my work on Tuesday, and have  felt a bit rough all week, one knee is swollen, one is covered in bruises, one of my palms took quite a deep graze and, as it was still a bit weepy today, I went to get it looked at and get a tetanus shot.....so know I have a dead arm too!!!!
I was doing a bit of stamping and colouring last weekend, and I did manage to make one card this week.
This adorable image is "meant to be" from LOTV.....isn't it a sweetie, and just perfect for a CaS card! I have coloured this with the promarkers, the sentiment is a woodware stamp and the pearls are from Meiflower.
 
I would like to enter this into:
 
Have a lovely, lovely weekend.......I hope to do a bit of blog browsing and catch up with what you're all getting up too.

'Cos Mums are Cuties Too!

Hi and thanks for popping in, hope you had a lovely weekend.
So its time for a new challenge with
and, very aptly at the moment, our theme is
A Cute One For Mum!
 
 
We are lucky enough to have two wonderful  sponsors for this challenge!
We welcome Buuny Zoes, who are with us for the first time and will be offering an amazing prize of

 to our DT chosen winner........and that's not all
our lovely friends at Bugaboo are also offering a prize of

 
http://www.bugaboostamps.com/
 
So with that and some amazing DT cards....you should come and take a look!
For my own DT card I used one of the images that our lovely Bugaboo friends, gave us to play with....and made a card for my Mum! I had already made a Grandma card for her, so I decided to go for a different style and go C&S for this card. The image is coloured with promarkers, the scalloped border was made with an Xcut punch, the tabs at the top are Washi tape and added dewdrops to finish. The sentiment was part of the image and my Mum does enjoy a pun, so I'm sure she'll like this one.
 
While I'm here I have another little cutie to show you.........most of you will know that our Daisy had a one puppy litter back in November, and the adorable Hugo went to live with his new family quite a few weeks ago, well when we went, the lady did promise to keep it touch, and every few weeks she sends me a picture....this came through yesterday - isn't he a handsome little soul!!! He looks so much like his Westie dad, but with his Mums colouring.
 
Anyway, thanks again for your visit.......take care and I'll catch up with you  as the week goes on xx

One For My Brother!

I have a bit of a special card to share with you all today, Ok it looks just like any card but this is the card that I made for my brother for his 44th birthday last Friday.......its special because, by his own admission, its a birthday that he spent a lot of last year thinking he might not get too.  We think he is a bit of a super-hero because of the way he has fought against cancer (note, the little c here, it doesn't deserve a capital letter!) Bless his heart, he still has a long way to go, but all of his treatment and operations so far have been highly successful, he is gaining weight nicely and is managing what he is and isn't allowed to eat. He hopes, at some point, to be able to be to work with the hospital in supporting patients during the difficult early stages of their illness.......and I think he will be blooming good at it!
 
I was lucky enough to win this image from A Random Fan in a recent FB draw, it was love at first sight too, he is coloured with promarkers. The sentiment is printed directly onto Kraft, the dotty paper is from Bo Bunny. Buttons and twin from stash.

I would like to enter this into:
a random fan - birthdays
sentimental sundays - card for a man/boy
sweet stampin - inspired by book/film title 2nd entry (when I first saw this digi image the first thing that came to my mind, was a book my son used to love...Captain Underpants!
creative corner - button up
nutcrafters - boys, boys. boys

thanks for visiting today.....sending you biggest of hugs xx
