Snuggle Bunny

Hi there, hope your all keeping safe and well, I found myself with a day to play this week, I usually visit my Mum, who is in a care home,at the weekends, but unfortunately it is closed to visitors at the moment due to the virus. I'm hoping its open next week for Mothering Sunday, we will have to wait and see, its more important that they are kept virus free. 
So what to do on an unexpected day, make an Easter card of course .
I used one of Sassy Cheryl's images, Noah and his Bunny Bandit and also My Little Snuggle Bunny for the sentiment, I coloured with copics, used Prima Forever Young papers and found a wooden Easter Egg in the drawer.

We have some wonderful new releases at All dressed up stamps this month,
I was lucky enough to play with two-little-fairy-mice I loved these with there stripy leggings and fluffy skirts.

I made the backing paper with stormy skies distress ink and a cloud template i made, the rest I coloured with copics.

Moustache Valentine

Hi there, how are you getting on with your Valentine cards, I've managed to get 15 done for my local shop , so I'm quite pleased with that. Hubby and I don't send Valentine's cards, been married 42 years and it's something we have never done, we tell each other how much we love them every day, so I guess it works for us, plus it is only a few days away from our joint birthday.
If I did send him a card it would definitely be this one, he would love a moustache as wonderous  as this one. he he.
The image is an old one from Lisa at Twistoon called Heart Moustache but I believe it has been discontinued now , I coloured it with copics and the papers came free with Making Cards magazine.

Leanne's Birthday

Hello, something a little different from me today, this is a card I made for my Daughter in laws Birthday,no colouring involved. he he, the papers are from The Works, corner die is a Tim Holtz and the butterflies I can't remember because, in my wisdom I took my dies out of their packaging and stuck them to my craft room door with magnetic sheets, I know not very clever but a great space saving device, I just wished I had took photos of them in their packaging first .
The stamped sentiment is a Paper Smooches called Magic Sampler and I've included a sprinkling of gems around it.

Robo Christmas

Hi there, I have finally managed another Christmas card, CAS that seems to be my style for this Christmas ha ha, I've used a very old digi from Tiddly Inks called Roboto
who said a Robot was just for Birthdays, I thought if I coloured him in Christmas colours he would make a perfect boys card. The Son embellishment is a chipboard one that I coloured and then used glossy accents on it.

Kitsune Sprite and Hepaticia Sprite

Wow,what wonderful new releases we have from Mitzi at aurora wings this month, three of them, and if you would like to see what all the other DT have made please pop across to the Aurora wings showcase blog for loads of inspiration.
There is also a money off coupon with the codes attached.
I'm afraid I didn't get round to colouring Indian Corn Sprite
Here is  Kitsune Sprite, Mitzi has informed me that  "kitsune" is fox in Japanese. People in the west (mostly the anime and Japanese culture fans) tend to use kitsune for the multi-tailed fox spirit of the Japanese folklore (not everything is cuddly or cute, as 'spirit' can be more of a demon than a friendly ghost).
So you live and learn.

I have coloured with copics, used Basic Grey pyrus paper and the sentiment was a freebie.
