Bunny Crossing .... The Deconstructed Sketch #43

Happy 25th birthday to my eldest daughter Fae-Alison xxx
Tuesday  and already we have a list of jobs as long as your .  The  weather seems to have put a definite stop to "Project Paula" sending us outside armed with  and spades.  We've got quite a collection of seeds growing in the 4 greenhouses and Paula is especially proud of her new baby the first born of hopefully many :).  

I decided to make the first Easter card of the year seeing as its only a fortnight away.  So I used the fab sketch DS43...

and the gorgeous Bunny Tilda from Magnolia ...

... and close up .....

and once again I scanned her into the lappy before I coloured her up and then used her as a digi image on the inside with a cute little verse ....

Every End Has A New Beginning .... Sketch Saturday Challenge #200

I do apologise  for the lateness of today's post, but you know what its like when you have a huge list of things you want to get done cos the weather  is gorgeous and you don't manage to do anything!  The idea *-:) was to get up early, shower, get dressed and pop to the new store that's opened in town, have a little peruse, go home, have lunch, pop out in the garden and then down to Mum's for dinner this evening!   did it work out that way?  Did it heck!  We managed the getting up early, shower, dressed, breakfast, go to the new store ... but there was definitely no popping ..... 2 hours later and between the 4 of us £90 lighter :| we were on our way back to Mum's, where we had ~O) and white chocolate and cranberry cookies   we left around 1.30pm to go back to our house for lunch .  As we pulled up onto the drive Paula announced we needed to possibly go somewhere else ... :-/opening her hand she produced a gold crown   from her tooth ... Have you ever tried to get hold of an emergency dentist  at the weekend?   Well, don't bother ... what a nightmare!  We ended up at Tesco getting a DIY kit called "Toothy Pegs" to last until Monday when she can register with a Dentist and make a visit!  

So, I sit here eating lunch and typing my post, no gardening done and having to return to Mum's in about an hour and half for dinner  ...
