New DT post - Elephantastic Downloads

It's Sunday again, an hour missing! can you believe that, there aren't enough hours in the day as it is and now ive lost one overnight, does anyone know where it has gone????

Rocky Bear woke us up at 7.00am this morning, it was really bright and sunny. I hope this weather is going to last as it does really life your spirits.

I have so far had a very good weekend, firstly after an absolutely gorgeous walk yesterday morning through the bluebell woods, we went to a nearby garden centre for an English Afternoon Tea, oh my goodness, ive never had such gorgeous homemade scones in my life. I shall be returning today given half a chance! and if not definitely next saturday!!!

Then we came home and i set to work on some DT cards, while my hubby started tidying the garden, and un beknown to me, started erecting the recently inherited greenhouse. It has spurred me on to think about summer and sorting out our much neglected garden! As you know we got Rocky Bear at the end of last May, a very wet winter has left the garden totally destroyed! we need to think about what we are going to do, starting with getting a skip and clearning the garage and garden of debris. We have planned to do this over the Easter weekend, even son Jamie has agreed to help!

So watch this space over the next couple of months, where hopefully you will see my creativeness taking a new direction!

Now im waffling, and on with the reason for my post today. I received some fabulous news last weekend, I had been offered to join a new DT. I am absolutely thirlled to be given this opportunity, and it has helped to lift the dark cloud that has been hanging over me for sooooo long. This along with other happenings lately has made me feel positive for the first time in a long while!

My lovely friend Helen has been creating her own digi-downloads. This is a fairly new project for Helen, who also creates lots of other crafty items, including her famous knitted dolls that have infact been hitting the television shows of late. Please go take a look here at all the wonderful things she makes. She is a very clever lady! Anyway, im waffling! Helen has decided to put together a DT to promote her digi-images, and i feel honoured to be asked to join her. The other DT members are Jilli, Jane, and Heidi, all a lovely talented group of ladies, whom im thrilled to be working alongside. Please go take a look at their wonderful cards im sure you will be inspired, as i am, each time i visit their blogs!

I hope you will enjoy the images and my cards! I have to be honest this is my favourite image of this adorable easter rabbit - Roger!

I have coloured in roger with my pro-markers and he is a dream to colour. Have used just plain cardstock which ive embossed and punched. The sentiment is a Stampin Up stamp that I received in a RAK ages ago, I love the font!

Border punches are fiskars apron strings and a x cut scallop border punch, a bargain at £3.99!

My second card has been made using again basic cardstock that has been embossed and also some MME papers, im afraid i dont know the design.

The Easter wishes sentiment is a stamp by Papertreyink. Another gorgeous font and the set is called Mixed Messages Vol1 No29. Which has a selection of very useful greetings!

Go check out other gorgeous downloads by Helen, im sure there will be something to tickle your fancy!

Now i have waffled on for far too long already, i hope you enjoy your sunday I will be back tomorrow with a card for the JCBC challenge!

Hugs Linda x
