My Apologies and Some Exciting News

Sorry I haven't been around much lately... Sorry to the Willow Sketchie Challenge DT that I missed last week's challenge too. I haven't been crafting much lately... Which brings me to my exciting news... I am 15 weeks pregnant. :D Baby and myself are well... However I have been very tired and it is taking me a bit to learn my limits... My craft mojo also seems to have run away of late. :( Hoping it returns soon as I have a few Birthday cards I need to make. ;)

This is a pic of our baby taken at my first ultra sound scan at 11 weeks and 4 days.

Peek-A-Bunny Easter Card

I have been sick with the flu all week, but no matter what I was going to get my entry for this week's Willow Sketchie Challenge done... And tonight I did just that. I once again used both the sketch and the theme. Hope you all like it. :D

Peek-A-Bunny Easter Card

I used white card for my base card which I covered with pink paper. I then cut 4 6cm x 6cm squares out of a white and pink patterned paper and stuck them onto the card. I embossed a piece of yellow paper using paw print embossing plates and then cut out a 8 x 8cm square.

I sketched a bunny picture onto a piece of white card, traced around it with a black marker, coloured it in with coloured pencils and trimmed around it. I then glued it to the embossed yellow paw print square and attached it to the center of the card. Lastly I threaded pink satin ribbon through 2 yellow buttons and tied a bow and glued one to the top left corner and the other to the bottom right corner of the card.

I would like to congratulate Claire from Willow Sketchie Challenge on her recent wedding and also thank her for a great sketch and theme. Good luck to all that enter. :D
