Guest Designing at In the Pink

Hello again :o) I said I would be back very shortly and here I am :o)

I was recently asked by the very lovely Christine over at 

if I would like to Guest Design for a couple of weeks and of course I said I would be thrilled - I mean who doesn't like getting crafty with anything/everything Pink?

So this fortnight the theme is 


Here's what I did.

First project a card:

 Initial inspiration came from the design paper with the bunnies on it - from my Nana's Nursery For A Girl paper pad - although you can only see one of the cute bunnies!!!

Card Ingredients:
Image: Stamping Bella 'Uptown Girl Bunny and Her Daffodil'
Colouring Medium: Copics
Dress Paper Pieced
Design Papers: DCVW 'Nana's Nursery Girl'
Srummy ruffled edge organza ribbon 
Cute Easter Bunny Charm
A touch of Diamond Stickles

My second project:
A Treat Basket

Tutorial for this treat basket can be seen here
Design Papers: DCVW 'Nana's Nursery For a Girl'
Images: (One on each side) from Nancy Watts Making Cards many years ago :o)
Flowers: wild Orchid Crafts
Sheer Ribbon from stash

Hope you can find some time to join us this fortnight.
