Hippity Hop.......

Claudia over at Friday Sketchers has provided a fabulous sketch this week. I loved the way my card turned out using it! I just reversed the side the tag is on.
A sweet friend of mine sent me this adorable stamp and it just screamed to be used! I needed to make an Easter card for a 1 year old and thought this image would catch her eye. That is why I kept it fairly simple as well! I knew if I went all flowery she would pull them off and do who knows what with all the loose embellies (LOL)!

Paper: DCWV
Inks: distress Inks, twinkling h2o's
Accessories: Raffia Lace ~ Paper Cellar, twine and button ~ stash, pearls ~ Micheals

Speaking of Easter ~ My oldest or my baby as I call her, was born on Easter Sunday 7 years ago today! I can't believe it!
This cute little baby has turned into this pretty little girl in a blink of an eye! (I know they are both pretty but I am referring to the one in blue!! LOL)
I can't believe how fast time flies by and even faster with children!! Good thing I remain 29 though!!! (haha)

Anyway I hope everyone has a fabulous day and thanks so much for stopping by!!

Hi Kathy, I always thought you were about 29 anyway LOL! You have the most beautiful little girls and your eldest born at Easter just like me tee hee! My birthday actually falls at Easter this year which is always more special for me, I'm also still in my '20s! I hope her birthday is good and she has fun, it's crazy how quick they grow up! I love your card by the way, I agree it's the perfect image for a little one and nothing too edible on it. Gorgeous colouring, papers and a lovely design, I liked the sketch too, and am entering this week. I'm sure you're going to be busy today, have fun. Chris x

Oh, I've been meaning to mention to you Kathy that I just got some Fabriano watercolour paper and my goodness, it's so lovely to work on! I bought the really big sheets (A2 size over here) and it wasn't too expensive for how many cards I'm getting from it. Don't know if you've tried this one but it's lovely and the paint moves around beautifully, thought you might want to try it too. Chris x
