CES Challenges DT Card.........Teddy Bo Bunny

Good morning & Happy Easter everyone how are you all? Well it looks like we are in for a fabulous day weather wise hope so as we are packing a pinic & having a day out.....family time. I'm sorry for not getting round to everyone yesterday I ran out of time. We took Natalie to the Alan Shearer centre yesterday as they are having her for weekend respite to give us a break.......wow its weird we kept going in her room last night to check on her & this morn was up at 6.20 whats that about....typical lol. Last night my eldest had deliveries to do until 2am & my youngest went with him so for the first time in 20 years me & hubby had a night to ourselves.....wow it was soooo quiet. So we had some true quality time together so my lappy was turned off.....I will catch up today tho....my boys prob wont get up til din time lol...so that will be when we go out.

Anyway onto the reason you are here for my card of course & its a new challenge at CES Challenges
we had our lowest amount of entries last week for the sketch so we are giving you an easy one this week to bring you all back to play............. It was the fabulous Sue's turn this week to pick a theme & its fab..
Spring Colours/Image
With all this glorious weather we have been having it shouldnt be hard. I have done my first easter card which I made on Monday but only took piccy's last night so redid them in the sunshine this morning.

Yes its another Teddy Bo image I've never made an easter card before so the only stamp I had that could of suited was a magnolia stamp...yes un-opened from last year. However I went onto Teddy Bo.com & well a few kinda leaped into my basket........I think they are really frogs indisguise you know.....cus wow do these little bugga's jump fast....lol

Dont look too close but I forgot to colour the leaves so guess what my job is later lol.
Yes its an easel card & I followed the fabulous sketch on sketch & stash....I did the bottom the same but without the corners

The gorgeous papers are Prima these & websters are my fave paper companies. ANyway this pack is the 'Jack & Jill Celebrate' 6x6 pad which of course you can find here.


Of course what would eater be without a cross somewhere so I added a small silver crosse to some chain from my jewellery making stash.
Papers & flower & leaves are from Crafty Emma's Store.
Everything else is from my stash
I've had a few e-mails asking where I get my card from, I get all my coloured & cream & white card from Papermill Direct they do fabulous deals on their card & its good card. The yellow is bright let me tell ya so I toned it down by adding blue as well lol.
Pop over to see my fabulous teamies creations they are sooooo gorgeous.
Hope you can join in with the fun this week.
I hope you all have a fabulous easter weekend & please enjoy it with your families dont worry about commenting.....enjoy the holiday & make the most of it with your loved ones. What could be more important. Hope you gets lots of choccy I sure plan on it lol.
Well I'm off to have a hop before I go in the shower, can you believe I still havnt worn my new skinny jeans, I know I's useless......I'm putting my ass into them today tho lol.
Thank you sooooo much for popping by & if you do have time to comment I thank you again but please dont think you have too.........
''Live life to the full, we dont get a practice run at it, we only have this one shot so live it to the max & with no regrets.........be happy, be loved & most importantly love each other''
Challenges I'm Entering......
