Hot Water Bottle and Duvet......

Hi Everyone

How can it be so cold and it not be snowing????? It's freezing! After work we have been having a hot bath and then snuggling on the sofa with a hot water bottle and our duvet. It''s been lovely to catch up on all of the films that we have recorded over the past few months. but it's not getting any 'Mother's Day' cards made.

Here is one of the cards that I did manage to make:

I have used one of my old Magnolia stamps and coloured them using Pro Markers pens (my copics are fast running out). I thought that the bright colours of the Promarkers were better for this Easter Card. All of the papers and card were from my personal stash and the little eggs are from a 'House Mouse Designs' set. I have shown the inside of my card too. I always decorate the insides as I feel that it make the card look finished and it's an excuse for not having to think of a sentiment/verse to put in it.

I am entering this card into the following challenges :
Great Impressions - Have a heart - 28.2.13
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes - 26.2.13
Oldie but a Goodie - Bright Colours - 4.3.13

My Time to craft - Inspired by a Song "chick, chick, chick,chick, chicken, lay a little egg for me" 27.2.13

Have a good evening everyone, I'm off to top up my hot water bottle.
