Easter Blessings

Good morning!  It's Monday!  The weekend went so fast!  They always do though (unless we're working).

Since it is Monday, that means it's time for a new challenge at Pollycraft!  We had some lovely entries into our sketch challenge last week!  It's always great to see everyone's different interpretations of sketches. 

This week the lovely Jane has set the challenge and she has chosen the theme of Check it Out!  That means we would like to see Gingham or Tartan on your creation!  Our sponsor this week is Pollycraft!  Yay!  That means the winner will receive 10 digis of their choice from the shop!  What a great opportunity to pick up some of those fabulous new releases!  Head over to the Pollycraft Monday blog to check out the amazing DT projects!

I used the new Swings and Slides - Lil Bunny for my card:

Isn't she sweet?  I have coloured her with copics (see details below) and added googly eyes to the bunny hat and Glamour Glaze to her glasses.  The sketch I have followed is from Deconstructing Jen and it looks like this:

The papers are from October Afternoon and Crate Paper.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.  The bling is by Prima and the buttons are from my stash.

Here's a close-up of Lil Bunny:

And here are the copics I used:

Did you see I finally worked out how to make a proper watermark in Gimp?  It's pretty amazing software for freeware!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Craft Us Crazy: Easter and/or Something Sweet

Have a lovely Monday!
