This week on the Cute Card Thursday blog we are getting ready for Easter and are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. I've made an egg shaped card by cutting out my base with the biggest X-cut egg die, then taking off a sliver from the base at the back so it stands up. It's a simple design with a piece of digi flower paper by Cuddly Buddly with inked edges stuck to my base egg card, a length of green ribbon wrapped around, then my LOTV image is matted with textured green card and fixed with 3d foam pads.
I've stamped the bunny with brown Momento then coloured with Copics: the yellows with Y13, 15, 19 & YR16; greens with YG03, 06 & 09; bunny with E30, 31, 34, & E02 plus glitter on his fluffy tail. I've coloured the background with BG0000 & BG000. To decorate I fixed a bow with a button, cut out 3 small eggs from the smallest die in the set and added a little doodling with a white gel pen, stamped and matted a greeting, then cut the Marianne butterfly and tiny flowers and decorated them with tiny gold gems. The butterfly is from the set LRO158, whilst the tiny flowers are from the Craftable set CR1210.
Over on the Lili's Little Fairies challenge blog it's an anything goes week - with a fabulous prize from Nitwits to be won. I've not done a DT card for this challenge, in fact I've not done any crafting at all for over a week now, and that's a situation that's not set to change for a while. My craft stash is piled up and with the build work going on, there's Mum to look after and the dogs as well as it's too hot for them to go to work with DH in the van - consequently I'm flat out and any time off I've spent in the garden! I don't have access to the internet every day either - so for now I'm signing off for a bit, regular blogging to be resumed at a later date!
I see that Charisma Cardz and Fab 'n' Funky challenges also have an Easter challenge this week - so I'll enter my card with them.
And, I've been trying to leave comments but Blogger wont let me - I type everything out then when I press submit it pretends to not know me .. .. what's been happening?!
