Hoppy Easter!!

So I FINALLY got a chance to play with the Mama Elephant Honey Bunny stamp set – and I’m in love!  They are so cute aren’t they?  I created some tags to go with the Easter gifts I made this year for all the children in the family – all 14 of them!!!  I bought some cone treat bags and filled them with orange Millions and some other sweeties and then tied them with scraps of green ribbon.  I also made a card with the bunnies and some dies from Taylored Expressions – the picket fence die, the grass border the cloud dies and flower box dies.  Don’t they all go together perfectly?

I don’t usually show so many photos of a project but got a bit carried away with this one!!  Also, there is a challenge going on over at the Mama Elephant blog at the moment with a cool graphic for inspiration:  I thought the pale blue, green and yellow shades reminded me of the colours in the picture.



Case Study Challenge – more from Danielle

Hello, here with my next card for the Case Study Challenge where I’m a guest designer for the month of February – yay!  The muse this month, if you didn’t already know is Danielle Flanders (whom I adore) and here is my take on her card this week:

The thing that struck me most about Danielle’s card is the hombre background so I grabbed my Modern Borders set from Mama Elephant and got to work.  I love that effect!

Hope you get a chance to play along over at the Case Study Challenge this week.

Big hugs,

Photography hell!!

A quick post to share one of the cards for Christmas.  I actually wasn’t going to post it because it caused me no end of grief trying to get a photograph of it!!  I used the Winter Wonderland set from Mama Elephant (after seeing on Taheerah’s blog – hence why this card HAD to go and live with her!!).  This photo is awful but believe me, it was the best I could get!  It looks much prettier in real life!

I actually decided I would share it as the Wednesday Challenge over at Simon Says Blog is “Ice Inspiration” and this fits the bill nicely!!  Just ignore the horrendous photography skills!!
