Happy Easter

HAPPY EASTER! It's almost here anyway. This is my card for this weeks High Hopes Challenge. Kathrina has provided us a sketch. I am getting better at sketches now... I used to find them really hard but this one was lots of fun. I was a bit concerned as to why I chose blue for the bunny and up until I watercoloured his flowers I was still trying to work out what made me choose that colour. Even though, I am more than happy with it now.

I used all sorts of tools this week. My nesties, my brand new Martha Stewart leaf punch... (woohoo ebay!) and my two SU! circle punches. I didn't have a stamp that would fit in the circle so I hand wrote 'Happy Easter' and put a little heart in the middle.

I am going to send this card off to my friend in Townsville. I don't think she reads my blog so I don't think the surprise will be ruined.

Well, back to work in the morning... its another four day week this week with Easter at the end. Thats something to look forward to!
