Easter Bunny Girl

002b

Oh dear I have no will power at all!!!, I intended to do all the housework and washing today and not to craft until tomorrow but as I was putting all my lovely NEC purchases away I suddenly found myself sitting at my desk colouring these fabulous new Easter Tildas, I think I must have an alter ego that takes over as soon as it sees new crafty stash.

I had a fabulous 3 days at the NEC and it was wonderful to meet up with so many friends, too many to mention but you know who you are  I wish we could all get together more often I think I enjoy meeting everyone as much as the shopping, and of course being with dear Bev was the best, we had a great hotel and wonderful food.  We also meet Paul and Siri from Wild Orchid Crafts they are as charming in real life as they seem on the website and are so helpful.  You must check out their website this week they have some new packs of roses which they will sell in assorted packs and also some new colours in the Cherry Blossoms.

I am entering this card for this weeks challenge on Friday Sketchers Challenge it is a fabulous sketch by the wonderful Jeanette, loved it Jeanette thanks Hunxxx.

I have coloured Tilda and the eggs with Distress Inks and edged around the image with matching inks and whilst they were still wet I added some pale gold embossing powder and heat embossed, I really like the results.  The tulips are from Magnolia and the Leaf  Branch is a punch I picked up at The Hobby House stall as was the doily.

002a Well I suppose I had better get back to the washing, housework and of course cook dinner.  See you tomorrow

Hugs
