Easter Parade Bunneh!

I'm here on this gloriously sunshiney morning here in Stoke in the UK to share with you my latest DT creation for My Time To Craft. 
I am so glad the weather has improved & just in time for my week off work, how fabulous is that? Lots of walking ones fat skunk I think, need to get his winter chub off asap!!

 I thought I'd share one of my favourite photos of Nico from last year. One of the girls that works at Gentleshaw is an awesome photographer & took some great ones of Nico. This is my favourite, just look at his fluffy stuff....oh this boy has definitely stolen my heart 😍xx

Anyhoos on with my creation. I am part of a Facebook group that runs a progressive challenge. As long as you use the digi in the allotted time you will get the next one free & so on. I am quite new to this artist, but have fallen in love with her images. Make sure you pop over & see what fabulously quirky images she draws!! Bloobel Stamps
So this make is using this months progressive image, which I just love!!

Our theme over at My Time To Craft is....

WOODLAND ANIMALS 
or 
EASTER


I just love how quirky her images are!
I made this into an Easter card for our eldest, between her & her two flat mates at Uni 
It does say Happy Easter inside x
