Spring bunnies

CR00466 square

Another month, another challenge image from Gerda Steiner. And, thanks to the Daily Marker challenge, I have actually completed my entry in the first half of the month for a change. This time we had a cute pair of bunnies to work with.

Love you sew much bunny

CR00462 square

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.

Cake Monster

CR00418 square

Why do I always leave making cards for challenges until the end of the month? It’s not making the cards that’s the problem, it’s not even getting the photographs done — I’ve got that workflow sorted — it’s writing up the blog post to go with them. Actually, it’s more the “thinking about writing the blog post” that slows me down. I don’t know why, but it’s just one of those things that I procrastinate horribly about, even though it doesn’t actually take long to do when I finally put fingers to keyboard.

Hello tortoise!

CR00410 square

I don’t care if the digi stamp is called “hello friend turtle”, it has feet not flippers so it must be land-dwelling, therefore it’s a tortoise (checks… okay, technically all tortoises are turtles but still…). Now I’ve got that out of my system, on to the card 🙂

It’s been a while since I took part in Gerda’s progressive challenge — I missed out on adding my entry for the November challenge and, what with one thing and another, I hadn’t got around to rejoining — but I’m still on the mailing list and when I saw this month’s image, I thought I’d pick it up in the store and start up again.

Hello: Polaroid mermaid

Polaroid mermaid

I swear that next month, whatever image Gerda gives us for the progressive challenge, I am just going to colour it and put it on a card base1. That was, more or less, my intention this month, but then I saw all the creative things that people were doing with this scene and I wanted to do something different if I could. I was still planning on doing something simple when I started tidying up after creating another card… and there was a spare Polaroid die-cut on the desk… doomed…

Misc: Picnic penguin

penguin picnic

Where does the month go? I nearly ran out of time to get this challenge card made, which would have been especially annoying as I’ve had the design printed out waiting to be coloured for a week or so. I thought the penguin needed some companions, so I selected a couple of other Gerda Steiner critters to help him with his loaded picnic hamper.
