Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 25 - Easter Animals

Hi, hope you are enjoying your week!

As it was Shrove Tuesday yesterday I'm afraid we all stuffed ourselves silly on some yummy pancakes last night, and all came up with a list of things we are giving up for lent.

James decided he was going to give up playing on his computer but then settled on chocolate with the promise not to play on his computer quite so much.  Sam promised to give up sweeties :-D  Honestly, I don't think he realised what he was doing!! I'm waiting for the first full blown temper tantrum when I try and tell him he can't have them!!  I have given up chocolate and my HB has given up crisps.  We are both going to try to give up alcohol as well, but that might be pushing it as we have a couple of parties to go to between now and Easter but we'll see :-)  And I'm not sure I can go without chocolate and wine!!  We don't normally give up things for lent, but James wanted us to and it seemed only fair that we joined him :-)

Anyway, enough with the waffle, this weeks challenge at the Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge is

Easter Animals

I was going to use a Penny Black stamp for this challenge but in the end settled for a digi by Mo Manning, which is kinda cute :-)

And yes, there are animals in there :-)

Ooh heck I've just realised, chicks are birds, not animals!!  Oops!!  Perhaps I should have stuck to the rabbits!!  Does it count?!  I hope so :-)

Ahem, right, well on that note I'd better go

Sandilion Paper, Flowers, Buttons, Ribbon, Border and Circle Punches, Inks and Copics all Scrapbook Sisters,
Gems, Twine and Sentiment Stamp all from Stash

Thanks for stopping by, more tomorrow :-)

Fabulous Sue, wonderful colouring! Well I think you are mad giving up chocolate! Sorry but it has to be said, I gave it up once and vowed never again! And I think you are right, you cannot give up chocolate AND wine!! Good luck! Pami x
