Springtime!


Hi, guys! Is anyone else trying out the new Blogger? It doesn't seem too bad, once you get used to the new graphics.

Here's an Easter card for a friend who keeps chickens. I apologise for the shadow on the photo, my Daylight Lamp has been tidied by someone and it isn't in any of the 3 different places he's put it in the past. Bless.

The fun image is by Whiff of Joy. I coloured in Speccies (and I think I coloured part of her hat as hair by mistake, silly me!). There are Glossy Accents on her boots and stickles on her hair ribbons.

The sketch is from a brand new Challenge called Sketch Challenges isn't it good? The swirl at the bottom of the image is cut with a Spellbinders Floral Motif die.

Papers are from yet another freebie stack, this time 'Vintage Rose' by Craftwork cards. Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, and I used scraps of ribbon to substitute for leaves.  The sentiment is by LotV and the gems are from stash.

I'm entering the Sketch Challenges Challenge - though they like to see Emerald Faeries of A and T digital stamps, it's not essential!

I'm also entering the current Whiff of Joy Challenge where the theme is "Spring is in the Air."

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Burton's converted to new Blogger, but he's a nerd.

I like the retro version, but I'm just traditional like that.
