~~ In the Garden ~~

Hello everyone,
I hope you're week is going well.  Things are coming along in our new home...we managed to hang some pictures and mirrors this week with the help of our super SIL.   Still waiting for new furniture to be delivered so it looks like another 4 weeks before the rest of our boxes can be emptied. 
In the meantime we are out enjoying this sunny weather albeit a little cold as I schedule this post.

Today starts a new challenge at

and mixing papers from Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 6x6 paper pad.

Bunnies & Chicks

Hi everyone,

I do hope you had a good weekend. Another busy one in our household but things are gradually coming together. Like most Sundays we had dinner with our daughter and her family.  She is a wonderful cook and we are so lucky to have her living close by.  

This being the second Monday of the month it's time for a new challenge at
where the theme is so appropriate for this time of year "Bunnies and Chicks"

We are sponsored by the wonderful
who generously supplied us with our choice of digi .
I've coloured with Copics the adorable Betsy Bunny, available here in the shop.

I've used a very old collection of DP from Making Memories called Chloe's Closet.
I remember buying these on sale years ago. They are not my usual colours, perhaps that
is why they've stayed hidden for so long.
Sentiment is from TLC 
Ribbon from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you get a chance
to play along with us this month.
