It's a Wild World!

It's Thursday so time for another challenge at Cute Card Thursday - this week we are going wild!  I've been rather poorly so the Easter Bunny is about as wild as I'm feeling just at the moment, and he's one of my older LOTV stamps I've coloured with my Copic pens then cut out with an egg shaped die. I have given his fluffy tail a wee touch of sparkle with Lace Stickles .. .. I do hope he doesn't land in the middle of those daffs!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Whimsy Stamps, do stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and see the rest of the DTs creations for inspiration, then come join in the fun!


And here is my card, another of the off cuts from creating a small square base so room to hang an embellishment off the side and still have it fit the square envelope.  I've used up some of my Easter pad papers from last year and green Coredinations card from my stash that was a good match.  The rest is just odds and ends of ribbon and pearls and butterflies die cut from a scrap of orange card.  The text came as a magazine freebie and although I've layered it and the egg with 3d foam, it's barely 1mm thick so doesn't add too much dimension to the card for posting.

I will have to browse the challenges to see if I can link up to any, my tummy is still not right but I am on the mend, just feeling drained and tire at the slightest effort of doing things.  Everyone else has been ok so I put it down to a bug at the Hospital last Friday when I took Mum for her appointment - we were there for hours, and hours and with lots of doors to push open, goodness knows what I picked up.

I found a challenge to enter: at Crafty Ribbons this week it's anything goes with ribbon, so with my acid yellow organza I can enter with them.

I am itching to paint the fence that Jason has made in the garden and at 2am remembered I had a tin of blue wood paint in the shed!  I'd brought it with me from our old place, although I can't remember the shade of blue and the tin was never opened so there should be more than enough to give the fence a couple of coats, as long as I can find it, and if it  doesn't rain too heavily over the weekend that's what I plan to do.
