I nearly missed it. I haven’t been checking Instagram recently — the algorithmic ordering causes me ridiculous stress (3 hours, 6 days, 3 days, 6 days, 20 minutes, 2 days etc etc, just show me the most recent ones first!) — and I’d somehow missed Kathy Racoosin’s advance announcement on her blog. Luckily I spotted someone blogging their day one colouring in time to do some of my own.
The obvious thing would have been to make a Valentine card with this bunny and its big heart, but it didn’t really feel like the sort of image I’d use for a card for my other half (see this year’s Deadpool Valentine). So I decided to leave it without a sentiment because my card stash is already way too large and I know at least one person who would appreciate a random bunny card.
And this is the last of my festive creations for this year. I hope that everyone has had a pleasant Christmas and I promise I will catch up with everyone’s blogs and comments — December has had more than its fair share of stresses this year, so I’ve been truly grateful for this few peaceful days and some time spent with friends.
I have had this digi stamp sitting on my hard drive for a while now, just waiting for the right time to be used. And this Christmas was that time. A friend of ours builds robots as a hobby and I just had to turn this one into a Christmas robot for him.
The annual hunt for small furry Christmassy critters to go on a card for my mum. I’d narrowed it down to a handful of options, but ultimately this one won out because of the mouse butt. I love that little furry mouse butt 🙂
When I got this stamp, I did think that I would end up making more card variations with it — the stained glass style does lend itself to lots of different mediums and experiments — but then I didn’t actually need any more! By some miracle, I managed to make more cards than I ended up needing… But there is always next year 🙂
