Caught A Bug

Sunday, 24 March 2013

Hi everyone!

Happy spring!  Although it doesn't look like it!  It's been snowing steadily for 3 days, but we seem to be getting a break from it today, hopefully it'll stay away - my mum is celebrating a big birthday on Wednesday and we'd need to be able to get there to help her celebrate!
We've been dealing with a combination of heavy snow and wind, and flooding, but I live at the top of a hill so I think I'm getting the better end of the bargain and am just snowed in!  There has hardly been a road open all through the countryside and the electric has been playing up too.  Who'd've thought it at this time of year?!  This time last year Ireland was having a heat wave - I remember cos I missed it - I was in Australia at the time.  After the heat wave, it started raining in April and hasn't stopped since, unless you count it turning to snow instead!
Hopefully we'll get a summer this year.

But enough of my weather rant!  Time for another challenge for the Pink team at Eclectic Ellapu!
Berni's turn to host this week and the fab theme she chose for this week is...

April Fools - anything whisy or funny!

See, didn't I tell you, fab challenge!!  Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this week - I need a good laugh!

Here's what I did:

I made a pop-up card!

The image is "Caught A Bug" by Whipper Snapper Designs and I coloured it with the following copics: B12,0000, YG17,13,11 YR07,04,02, E57,55,53,51, Blender.

The papers are Basic Grey "Lime Rickey" and I used a Magnoila tag die for the computer generated sentiment - I thought the name of the stamp said it all!  Ribbons, charms and pearls are all from my stash (which basically means that I can't remember where I got them!).

Here's the card flat so it fits in an envelope:

So go and take a peek at what the rest of the DT have come up with at Eclectic Ellapu - you're sure to have a laugh!
