Springing in to Life

Well I think that Spring has sprung and left the planet if the weather outside my window is anything to go by! I have woken up on Easter Monday to a try dull, grey and cold glad that it is officially Summer now! But I can't complain as it's a bonus day off work today and I have managed to spend some time doing some lovely things this weekend......crafting, going for nice walks and spending time with my family, so it's not all bad!

Also - I have had a lovely surprise as I made it in to the Top 3 on a Gem of a Challenge - so I am now proudly displaying a new blinkie on my side bar.

Back to the new cards though..........I went in to a bit of an Easter card making frenzy towards the end of last week as it suddenly hit me that there were only a few days left to the big event and, although I had made lots of 'rabbit' DT cards, I hadn't actually made any to give to pressure then!!

Here's one of the cards that I made, using a lovely LOTV rabbit which I have had a for a few years now. He (I do think that this one is a boy!) is such a cutie that it was a pleasure to dust him off and colour him in once again.
For the colouring portion I have used my Promarkers, including the Spring limited edition, which appropriately included a colour call 'March Hare' - As you can see, the result was a lovely off white coloured rabbit, which I tried to make a little more fluffy by dotting with a blender pen.

The paper combination was from a freebie pack which I had in a magazine some time ago - very pretty papers I think!
