The theme on the Stampavie and More challenge is for Easter creations, and for my DT card I've chosen a little stamp by Penny Black from one of the clear sets - the Easter bunny with a lovely Easter bonnet! I've stamped with brown Momento and coloured with my Copic pens. The patterned papers are from Nitwits Thimbles Too collection matted with the now discontinued Close to Cocoa card from SU!
I've inked the edges of my layers with Sahara Sand Versamagic chalk ink then decorated with ribbon, pearls and a mix of punched and diecut flowers and butterflies. The pretty lacy circle behind the image is cut with Marianne Craftable CR1201, the swirls and pink open flower are from LR0112, the blue flower from LR0130 and the centres from LR0105.
The Penny Black Saturday March challenge is for Spring creations, and a new challenge to me over at the Visible Image blog where the March monthly theme is also for Spring. The Allsorts, One Stop Craft, Addicted to Stamps and The Squirrel and the Fox challenges are also for Springtime - I just wish the weather would catch on and give us Spring as well!
Thank you again for your kind words of support for me as my life changes direction .. .. yes, I will keep crafting! I am trying to keep positive, but sensible .. .. I need to go shopping for clothes, get a hair cut, maybe try an exercise class .. .. ok, I said maybe! I've made a start though .. .. I'm buying a new car, or rather Mum is - the old banger that Dad left me has so many niggly problems that would cost a fair bit to fix in a garage so we decided it was time to say goodbye, although it wont be going too far as Jason's girlfriend is going to see what she can do with it - after all she teaches car mechanics! So by this evening I should have a nice new car - another black Smart Brabus but not the sporty number Jason drives, rather the more sedate 5 door hatch back version. It's not new but I am sure once Jason has worked his magic with the polishing disks it will look amazing, and it'll make me feel good when I park up to hit those shops!
