Fluffy Bunny

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  Today is the most wonderful Autumn's morning here in New Zealand and the sun is shinning. The temperatures have dropped a little in the evenings but our days are still beautiful.  The water temperatures are still very warm as the boys were thinking of going swimming at our beach house on Saturday, thank goodness they both have waterproof casts on their broken bones.  My boys and the other boys in their boarding dorm at school have been fund raising for Cancer and last night and today is the big day for having their heads shaved.  The last time I saw them bald was when they were born and they did have a little bit of hair then.  Watch this space in the next couple of weeks for their bald photo's.

Congratulations to our winner and to our top three cards I'm sorry if I haven't commented on your blog this week but I've had a lot of computer issues.  My laptop crashed last Friday morning and I lost everything that was on it and on Saturday morning my desktop crashed and it won't re boot.  I have someone coming out to look at them tomorrow.  I do have a back up with an external hard drive for my desk top it has all my wonderful images that I've stored over the years I'll cry if I can't retrieve these images and my husbands financial accounts for our business. I'm currently typing this post on my son's old Think pad, it's so tiny especially the key board but beggars can't be choosers at the moment.

This week Sally is using a sketch a blast from the past

Sketch #183

Here's my card using this cute image that's great for a babies card or for Easter.
This week I rotated the sketch by 90 degrees to the left to fit my image in.

Here's my blast from the past and isn't it funny Meljen's Designs were our sponsor that week as well.

This week Melissa Jenkin's the owner and illustrator of Meljen's Designs is our sponsor, thanks Melissa so much I love working with sweet designs.

MelJen's Designs

Melissa's Bio:  My name is Melissa Jenkins, and I am a homeschooling mommy and wife to my best friend. We have two children, two cats and three hermit crabs. When I'm not drawing, I love spending lots of time with my family cuddling on the couch, playing games, going for walks, fishing, visiting the park & the zoo, collecting postage stamps, or just plain watching movies.
I've been an artist as long as I can remember - and I am inspired by everything around me. All of my digital stamp designs are inspired by my children (and husband!) and things they do, our cats, things we see on nature walks and daily 'adventures', or memories I have of my childhood. Animals too - I love animals! Art is an uplifting thing for me, and I love designing cute tidbits of art that makes people smile.
I draw all of my little creations by hand. A lot of love goes into my art! Each of my designs is sketched in pencil, inked with a black Micron pen, then scanned in and lightly cleaned up so it will look crisp when you print it.
I LOVE inspiring crafters. I am not very talented at making cards myself, so I LOVE seeing all of the beautiful things that you make with my digital stamps. I couldn't ask for a better blessing!

Kathie, your card is gorgeous. I hope the boys have fun swimming and manage with their casts. My son has his head shaved because of the military so I'm used to that look. Sorry to hear of your computer problems...I know what a drag that is. Have a great week.

A beautiful card Kathie, I thought this bunny looked a bit scary uncoloured but you and Heide have changed my view.
Hope that you can recover all your data. Looking forward to seeing the pics of the boys too. Hugs Anne x

Kathie, Love how you card turned out. It is so funny that we both used the frilly ribbon as well as a straight ribbon. I almost colored my bunny in gray too! Have a super week. Hugs, Heide

((laughing)) I can NOT wait to see the boys with their bald heads!! Cheers to them for taking the plunge too. My oldest will shave his head but only to a peach fuzz, never bald. Your card this week is absolutely darling! Love that sweet bunny in greys and blue.
