More of Warren the rabbit.....




Here's a couple of quick cards I made with the totally luscious Warren - he comes all ready printed on the cut circle, needs minimal colouring....what could be easier? Base scalloped card and the rabbit images are from Craftwork Cards

I kept this first one really simple, just added a pinking shears nestability circle, and a bit of colour to the flowers. I airbrushed the circle very lightly with pale blue and green

For this one, I used papers from the DCWV Linen Closet stack - that must be my all time favourite DCWV stack, I just love the soft colours. I found the easter time stamp lurking, it is a really old studio G dollar stamp, and has a little chick underneath the saying, but I just inked the sentiment with a memento pen and stamped onto the rabbit circle....


I can't tell you how busy I have been, replacing work that was lost in the great flood - okay, it was a steady drip, but still destructive. We have had men clambering all over the roof, how on earth can they do that, climb up a ladder with a bucket of mortar in one hand and a cigarette in the other, talking on their phone which is clamped under their chin. Our house is three storey - I couldn't bear to watch, so I made them all a coffee, had to watch it all in reverse then listen to the tale of one of them being carried unconcious into A & E last week after falling off a ladder. So I gave them a biscuit and dashed into the house to see if we were covered on insurance if they tumbled off our roof.

See you tomorrow if I can find my camera, which seems to have gone missing, I just hope it isn't in the bin bag with the soggy paper..

Must have missed one of your post Enfys, sounds like you have had a bit of bother. I know what you mean about the roofers though...fearless men or just stupid? Love your little cards, he is so cute.
Have a great weekend.

That Warren is just the cutest little guy! Great job on these.
I can't imagine getting up on the roof like that either. My brother in law does it all the time, even after he fell off one time. He fell right onto a wrought iron fence and was impaled onto one of the spikes. What a horrible time that was! The EMT honestly saved his life, but having someone bring him plastic wrap and he wrapped him in it. We probably would have lost him if that EMT hadn't been really on the ball.
Sorry to damper your day with a horror story.

Warren is adorable! Sorry about your leak - nothing worse than a storm and then water dripping inside!

Happy Easter card making!

Warren is sooo adorable and I agree with you about Linen Closet. Love your cards. My husband use to carefully climb on our 2-story roof to paint the edges of the house and I had to go inside, because I couldn't watch or even think of him up there. Hope you find that camera!

Well that Warren is the cutest darn rabbit I've ever seen. Of course he wouldn't be so adorable without you. Oh horrors, a leak is so messy. Sure does make you think about the poor people in Japan though.

JANLYNN said...

I just love Warren. He is so cute you just want to gather him up in your arms and hug him so. Hope those men get your leak fixed without injury. The problem I usually have is when they come to fix one thing somehow at least 3 other things get broken. And they never know how that happedned.
