A little Winter Bunny

Hi Lovely Bloggers...

Just popping by with a card for CC Designs DT - this little guy is one of the Roberto's Rascals range...  Winter Bunny.

Now I thought I'd go for more of a simple, modern look with this one - not quite sure I've managed it as it's not my favourite recently... but what the heck, I love the bunny!  My phone camera is still no too good at not wiping out the colours (particularly reds) either so bear with.....

Frosty the Snowman....


Hi Peeps....

OK, I'm singing the song - does anyone else remember 'Frosty the Snowman' from our younger days?? LOL!  Showing my age I think!

Today's card is my DT card for CC Designs... and it's another of the gorgeous November/Christmas release..  this IS Frosty!!  He's one of the wonderful Pollycraft rubber stamps and is available HERE in the store.

Now I have a new phone (and I use my phone a lot for taking photos of my cards) - and it is very good at changing the colours that are actually ON my card!  More fiddling with the settings to come I think - my older one got the colours perfect.  Mind you, it could be something to do with the fact that we've had no proper natural light this week..  I think one day, the lights stayed on all day in our house!  So bear with me on the colours please...  oooh and the snowflakes in the shaker bit AREN'T pink!

Hope you've not been affected by the floods over the weekend....  the weather has been pretty awful, hasn't it.... not at all suitable for the little guy above as he'd have melted in the warm temperatures we've been having with all this rain!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting...

Merry and Bright...

Hi Peeps..

A quick, clean and simple one from me today.  I have fallen in love.... seriously... with this little reindeer from the Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together stamp set!   I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire to do something similar to her using a mask over the little reindeer after colouring him..  to sponge a little bit of sky.  This is my third attempt at the sky... and I gave up trying to make his nose glow!! LOL

But I'm happy with how he turned out eventually...  Hope you like too!

I think I'm definitely going far more CAS than I ever was.... they somehow appeal to me more!
