Spring Action

Welcome to 2015!!! A new year and new hopes (and obviously new possessions after christmas lol). I hope you all had a fantastic festive period. We had both sets of family down and it was extremely enjoyable. Too much food and lots of fun and games - no technology needed for our Christmas day hehehe. We also have three little eggs in our red-rump nest box, with mummy being a very good sitter.

Anyway, I have been playing today, but not with anything I got for Christmas. I made a Spring Bunny ATC collection:
All the cards in this collection are based around Sketch #50 from Sketch and Stash and use a bunny digital image from Hoppy Wishes which were coloured using promarkers.

They are also being entered into the following challenges:
Card Mania #63 Anything Goes
alphabet challenge W for Whiskers
abc-challenge - A for Anything Goes
Passion for Promarkers BINGO - Ribbon, Free (digi stamp) and Blooms
Papertake Weekly Pick a Fav (2 or 4 legs)
i love promarkers #250 Anything Goes
simon says stamp wednesday Anything Goes
cute card thursday Anything Goes

ATC #1

This uses a pale green base card, with hoppy wishes pink patterned paper layered over. The rabbit was die-cut and layered onto the panel, with a ribbon strip printed onto the bottom of the die-cut. A bow was added to the ribbon and a paper flower and sentiment finished this ATC.
ATC #2
This ATC has a textured yellow paper layered onto white card as the base. The rabbit image was die-cut using Nellie's flower circle die-cut and layered onto the panel. Green twine was wrapped around the yellow paper before attaching to the base. The sentiment was also printed from Hoppy Wishes, and a wooden flower finishes the card.

ATC #3
Th rabbit image was layered onto a floral patterned paper also from Hoppy Wishes, then onto a green floral paper from my scraps stash and finally onto a Kraft card base. A ribbon bow and printed sentiment finished the ATC.

ATC #4
For this final ATC the rabbit image was layered onto a Polka Doodles patterned paper with a green floral ribbon wrapped around the bottom. This was layered straight onto a purple base card. A polka doodles printed sentiment and two fabric flowers finish this ATC.

Audio Book Review
Illegal Action by Stella Rimington

This story is based around the anti-terrorism unit. It looks at spying within the country, rather than outright terrorism, though so it is an unusual story. The unit gets word that there is an ‘illegal’ (a foreigner who pretends to be from another country, other than their home country, in order to provide information for their country) from Russia and that there is something about to happen. The main character is asked to go undercover in the household of a millionaire, originally from Russia, as it is suspected that this is who the operation is going to be against. She is threatened and tries to remove herself from the position, but no-body believes she is truly in danger, including herself. This story has many twists and is full of suspense. There is an unseen twist at the end, but unfortunately the criminal is not caught. Another good book for long car journey’s.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. I would love to see you on my facebook groups:
