'Boats and Bunnies'

Hello Friends!.....
      another week gone, yes and another month too, and April here has started off with the obligatory April showers. Yesterday was glorious sunshine and warmer...very Spring like, today.....cooler, damp, and of course we are heading for a Saturday so what do we expect!!

Another simple make from me for my step-dads birthday.

I took this from an old 'Making Cards' magazine, papers and image. I added the blue and red card and hand drew the squiggly line...yes... I know pat on the back there! The corrugated paper was from a biscuit packet.....sorry can't remember what they were so you can't all rush out and buy a packet. I have to say though it is the best excuse I can come up with for buying
A Craftwork cards sentiment, bit of twine and a couple of pieces of Card Candi glazed with Diamond Glaze....oh and a touch of glamour dust on the water (not visible in the photo)......and there we have it...quick..ish, simple and I like it!....................ta de dah dah te dah.....that's me...blowing my trumpet   :)

So Easter came and went and threw me out with the days this week...oh by the are the Easter thrones for the Cadbury Creme eggs that graced my table on Easter Sunday. Everyone liked them (well there were only 4 of us) so the eggs got eaten...thus only the one for me  :(

Is it me but they do get smaller every year.?..must cost Cadburys a bomb in new moulds!!


The cute bunny is a Memory Box die...'frilly bunny'.....comes complete with bow for his neck.

OK I am off to put the kettle on...please pop in for one if ever you pass....someday someone may just surprise me!
Have a super weekend whatever you are doing...hubby is praying for dry weather so he can get in the garden...and me? well I am bound to find a drawer or cupboard that needs my attention...preferably in the craft
Take care and thank you for spending time with me and leaving the lovely comments that you do.

See you next week.

  1. Brilliant excuse to have a packet of biscuits in your craft room! If they make the eggs any smaller they will be the size of a Malteeser!! Love the card and the design is brilliant. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  2. Hi Carol
    What a gorgeous man card and I love your squiggly frame and bow! I know that crafters keep everything but I never thought of examining biscuit packaging! Such a good excuse for keeping a good supply in. I think your egg thrones are fabulous and I might just have to try those next year. I hate cream eggs though so it would have to be for one of the other small ones for me.
    Take care,
    Carol x

  6. A fantastic card for your step-dad, my friend...perfect 'guy' image and just the right amount of 'decor' to keep it manly manly. The squiggly line: excellent! Trumpet-blowing well-deserved, indeed! Your bunny-and-egg thrones: candy for the eyes and the taste-buds! Scrumptious!
