Bunny for a Baby

This cute little bunny is a digi from Priscilla Styles, CDAC.  I am going to enter this card into the Midnight Madness contest, Priscillas group, CDAC.  Although it could be used for Easter, I am going to use it to welcome a new baby.
Background paper is from Deja Views "Sharon Ann" Collection.  The yellow dp which was cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die is from K&Company, Seasonal Paper.  The bunny was colored with Pencil Crayons.  The Blue wiggly stickers were from Frances Meyer, and the feet embellishment and the Rhinestones were from my stash.

We have a few inches of snow, but it going to rain to-morrow so the snow will soon be gone.  My daughter gave me about half an hours notice that she and three children were going to stop by for dinner -  Thank goodness Chinese take-out is very close by.  It was a good evening, a no stress meal and so great to see the kids.  They didn't stay too late, they still had a 2 hour drive home.

Humming Bird

Love this swirling hummingbird.  It's an Inkadinkado rubber stamp from Hero Arts.  The inner circle cut with Coluzzle and the outer scalloped circle with Spellbinders Nestabilities.  The DP, Flowers, and silk butterflies are from my stash.  The Rhinestones are from Melissa Frances, Vintage Attic Treasures.  Made for a friend in my card group, but she was under the weather with a bad hip so was not at our card day on Thursday, but hopefully will be out next Thursday.

I thought with the snow storm that was forecast for this morning that I would be staying home, but the weather forecasters were wrong again and it did not amount to much.  Just a few inches of snow which had mostly melted by noon.  I curled to-day but sad to say we lost.  We had a good time and a great gab fest over coffee afterwards.

Luck of the Irish

I entered this card in the Sketch Challenge for CDAC hosted by Deedees Digis.  I used the freebie provided by the store.  I followed the sketch just as it was.  Using paper that I had on hand and coloring the wonderful pot of clover with copics.  Trying to match the snail with something I used mauve copic and mauve cardstock at the bottom.  A fun card to make as my husband's birthday is on St.Patrick's Day.
