Hello again! When will Spring arrive? It's so miserable here today, pouring with rain and dull! You even have to put the lights on indoors during the day, it's THAT dull! Anyway, I've done a couple of cards, the first one is in the hope that Spring arrives soon!

This little bunny stamp is from Penny Black (one of the older ones I believe - not sure of the details as it was a RAK from my kind friend Louby a while back). I've coloured with Promarkers (Baby Pink & Tulip Yellow mainly) so I'm entering this in the Passion For Promarkers Challenge this week (you also have to use stitching so I've stitched the button onto my bow). Last week my card was chosen in the Top 5 - how great is that!!! Also the Penny Black Saturday Challenge would like to see the colours Pink, Yellow & Green on your creations... so my card fits there too! Finally the challenge at Stamp Something is "A touch of Spring Somethings"...what could be more Spring than these lovely colours and cute bunny with Spring flowers?!

My second card is a Christmas one, I have to force myself to make this as I'm not really in the jolly Christmas spirit at the moment. It's for the challenge at Wags n' Whiskers, which is to use you favourite things. I'm not sure about this card, it's a little dull and plain, but I have added lots of my fave things... Sweet Danni & Bella stamp, Promarkers, charm, ribbon, pearls, MS punch...
Well, that's all for now, don't forget to check my previous post about the new Creative Cottage Challenge blog, and the super candy up for grabs!

Hiya shelley - love what you've done with the bunny. Very cute card. I've never thought of doing the bunny in a colour other than browny bunny colour....doh!!! Your Christmas card is great, I know what you mean about not being in the jolly Christmas mood though and who can blame us with the dull dull weather.Hope the sun shines for you soon.
