Morning Fluffers!

So, the other day, I made a card using this layout and I wasn't sure about it; the card, the layout, something didn't sit right for me. But you all left such lovely, encouraging comments, I thought I'd have a play with it again.

I've had this Easter Stamp sitting on my desk for a little while (sorry girls) and she was just shouting at me to be inked up. I've also had this green polka dot paper lounging on my desk begging to be used and so the three things seemed to fall together nicely.

I love daffodils and without the Easter sentiment I thought that the image might make for a nice Get Well card. I couldn't find a Get Well sentiment to fit where I wanted it, so I used this one instead.

Coincidentally, the new challenge over at My Mum's Craft Shop this week is Flowers and if you play along this week, you could win this fab Marianne Design Creatables Chinese Rose. Hop on over for all the details!

On Sunday, we gave Sweet Cheeks the egg that The Easter Bunny left for him. As he loves all things car related, (he's slightly OCD about Tractor Ted again at the moment.) it stands to reason that the egg is/ was car shaped. His little face when I handed him this big car, and then he realised it was choklit. Ooooooooh Choklit, he said. That's my boy!

Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Papers: Rainbow Polkadots; Funky Hand
Image: Good Wishes at Easter; Rainbow Studios
Sentiment: Papertrey Ink
Colouring: Copics
Tools: Paper Piercer
Other: Beloved String from mahoosive roll (Sorry Jane, it's not going down!)

a) luvs the CAS look
b) that twine is sooo cool
c) boy, your colouring is great! The basket looks real!
PS. I refuse to think how much choklit my kids (AND me) have consumed in last days. If I block it out, it hasn't happened.
Still plenty left anyways.

Another wonderful creation - the dotty paper goes perfectly with the image and the string sets it all off beautifully. Still giggling about SC's reaction to his choklit car. You have trained him well, my dear! xx

Gorgeous card, my lovely Faye:-)! Beautiful image and gorgeous colouring and I love all those dots:-)! SC is definitely your son... But my little one loves finding eggs, looking at them, but not eating them... Do you think I should worry? LOL! Have a lovely evening, even if there is no Bat Cave time... or is there?
