Anything Goes at Papertake Weekly - Optional 'Bunnies'

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you had a wonderful Easter Break and that the Easter Bunny was good to you.
He certainly was good to all here in the Simpson household :o)

Sorry I haven't been around much recently - but I have been making the most of my time with my beautiful Grandchildren, my DH and of course Jack whilst it's half term. I have some photos to share at the end of this post :o)
But tomorrow my DH will be away in the Lakes visiting his brother so I will have plenty of time on my hands - especially in the evenings - so I will catch up with you all in the next few days.

Anyway it's Tuesday so that means it's time for a new challenge over at


and as it's the first Tuesday of the month that means the theme this week is

with the option of

So I thought I would share one of the Easter cards I made - this one was for my scrummilicious Granddaughter Lola Arizona

Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: First Edition 'Spring Drop'
MFT 'Blueprints 3'
Pearl Bead String - The Ribbon Girls
Little Pearl Flowers from The Hobby House

Thanks for popping by to see me today and for all the lovely comments left recently.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the fabaulous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

Before I go I would just like to share some of my favourite photos from last week's visit to Wookey Hole and from the Easter Weekend:

 Oliver trying to save Grandad from being eaten by a dinosaur

 Lola seems a little more pleased to see Alice in wonderland than her cousin :o)

 Off on an Eatser Egg Hunt 

Making sure they all get the same :o) 

 Tried to get Ruby Mae in the picture too - but she was off

 With her Easter Basket in hand

I love how the girls are dressed the same - I used to do dress Jamie and Aaron the same at that age!!!

I'll be back very soon with some details of some Blogaversary Candy as it will be 6 years this Sunday since I started my little blog - wow where have those years gone????

But first I  must cross something off my never-ending to do list:

7 Projects for The Hobby House Magazine Commission (Apr)
30 'Snow White' Birthday Party Invites for Lola Arizona (May) 
40 'Black Tie' Party Invites for Aaron's Surprise 30th Birthday (June)
80 Wedding Invitations (and plenty more besides) for Jamie and Rowena's Wedding (Sept)

I must try not to think about the 'whole' list and just focus on one thing at a time or I might get stressed out!!!!

Have a fabulous day whatever you have planned.
Catch you all laters.

Gorgeous Easter card Debs and adorable Easter photographs of your lovely grandchildren -how fast they're growing. Sounds like you'll be busy for the rest of the year! - I have to admit I always love the designing bit of invitations, it's fun - but when the repetitive reality hits home I usually wish I hadn't bothered - so good luck with that never ending list!! hugs Judith xx
