So what happened to Spring???


You've got to love the variety of weather here in the UK. Just when I was thinking that winter is coming to an end and Spring is finally on it's way, I get a short sharp reminder that, here in England, you can never count on the  weather! We had some beautiful days here earlier this week.....blue skies, sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures......lovely! But just as I was getting used to it....oh no......grey skies, darkness and constant rain :o(. And it get's worse - tomorrow we are down to 2 degrees and a threat of snow.....it seems we have jumped back to winter again!

Never mind though....I hope to be getting down to a bit of crafting at some point this weekend, and I can do that in any weather.....especially when I have lots of bright cheerful images and papers to put me back in to that 'Spring has sprung frame of mind again!)

So - on to my first card for the weekend, featuring a lovely bunny from Stamp Addicts. As you can see, he is very 'cartoon' style and I reckon you could make him look a bit like the famous Bugs Bunny with a bit of artistic colouring - especially with that carrot in his hand!

For some reason I was really taken with his great big feet, so I felt to need to decoupage his front foot, which I hope you can see on this photo.

The backing paper is from my Nitwits, Just hatched set and the layered flowers were also cut out of the same bit of paper,

So a very simple card, but nice and bright, so I hope this makes you think of Spring, especially if, like me, you aren't seeing it at the moment when you look out of your window!!
