Eggstra Special

Bo and Bea have been disguising themselves as bunnies ready for Easter and hopping all over the place.

I spotted them here on Claire's fabulous Easter card hiding in amongst the swirls and flowers. She has used the Happy Easter Image TeddyBoBea_010. Claire has some gorgeous makes on her blog which you can find here plus she does her own doodles too!

Warm and furry hugs

Sharing an Easter Card


Gosh, hasn't the weather changed ? Really chilly my end of the country.....need to get my jumper back on. Hope you all remembered to change your clocks forward last night. How excited am I that we now have lighter nights. Makes me feel so much better - alive, instead of feeling like I have to crawl away and hide.
So re-freshed....feels so good.
Anyway on to my card....don't often make Easter Cards but who wouldn't want to use Teddy Bo and Teddy Bea dressed in their bunny suits for a card? So many of these stamps are my favourite but now that I have coloured these in, they are simple the best so far.



I have coloured the digi stamp in with my pro-markers.
For Bo & Bea's fur I have used ~ sandstone / caramel & cocoa
Sunkissed pink ~ for the cheeks.
Putty and sunkissed pink ~ for the ears and tummy
For the bunny suit ~ warm greys 1,2 & 3, then blended with the blending marker.
I have added bigger eggs, using Adobe software.....smaller eggs come with the stamp.
Papers used are Forever Friends - Spring Time Paper Pack.
Flowers are from Wild Orchids Crafts.


This is the inside of my card. 
Hippity Hoppity Easter
I had one huge problem last night as Bo had gone on a walk about. I couldn't find him anywhere. I knew he was about somewhere - but where. I searched folder after folder, so in the end I had to do a search on my whole computer. Don't know how but he was hiding in a picture folder of one of my Daughters. I guess he was feeling a little sad......sad because he doesn't seem to have got about, like Bea as.
Doesn't he look so cute though - adorable.






Off to get dinner sorted - late one today......no hurry...or should I say Tammy isn't hurrying. lol
Meat is in the oven....but I am on a go slow.
So enjoy the rest of the day bloggers and I will catch you again soon.
Loads of Love

Lots of things to show you today...x


OH I'm sure that Spring is here.....we've had sun for 3 days in a row here in Scotland!!! WOW...that's a biggy for us!! ;o) SO....in celebration of the sun I thought I'd showcase some 'whites and lights' with Teddy Bo & Co. First up is something I've been working on the the last two days....I wanted something to look at at my drawing desk and this is what I came up with. A big box frame from IKEA...a lot of colouring in....some little 'bunting' and voila!!!



Next up we have a CHRISTMAS card (I know....I was talking Spring 2 seconds ago but it fits my colouring theme) which I'm sure you will agree is just beautiful....how wonderful would this be as a Baby's 1st Christmas!?!! Sandra (San's Scrap Corner) made both this card and Little Teddy Bea on the toadstool.....so light and Spring like....xxxx










Edna (Another day, another card) made the next card a couple of weeks ago but I've been 'saving' it for a day like today.......beautifully constructed but so minimalistic in it's colouring it's impact has a real WOW factor....love it!








And lastly we have Rica/Heather (Rica's Haven) who has made this STUNNING tag recently for another challenge........does it not just make you think of pretty dresses and Summertime....oh...Summer's just after Spring.....ooooooh, I can't wait.





Thank you ladies for making such BEAUTIFUL cards and really bringing little Bo & Bea 'to life' in your cards.......x



Catch you tomorrow....do I smell a freebie?!?!!?!?!?!? ;o)
