Happy Little Bunny!

Did you all have a good weekend? We had a FABULOUS time. Me, hubby and our 2 girls, got the train down to London to see Roger Waters, The Wall at the O2.  We were perched so high up we had to have several drinks to calm our nerves!! lol** But, it was AMAZING!

Here's the card I made for my Mum's birthday. 

Don't you just love easel cards - they're so easy to make and I think they always look a bit special. 
I layered a couple of stamps to get this little scene and then used a craft knife to cut out a black frame. I wasn't sure that my mum would like the bold, black and white when I had finished, so I added lots of glitter, blooms and girly stuff to try and soften it.

 The image took me an age to colour with my Copics and I'm still not happy with it (the tree is awful!), but it's the best I could do!

I hate making envelopes for these bulkier cards - I get in a real mess measuring all those triangles and angles  - BUT, no more! I found this fab little tut by Maddy Hill, to make the easiest of boxes.
