I made this using white shrink plastic and the Waggy Westie stamp from Little Claire. Coloured with watercolour pencils (not watered though) and the pin stuck on with silicon glue. The background to the photo is another paper from the Paws kit mentioned above.

Here is my DCM, I don't seem to be getting these done very regularly, but as sewing is one of my other crafts, I thought I should make a special effort. I've had this little piece of embroidery hanging around for about 18 months, it was an experiment in fabric painting and really not a very good size for a frame as I hadn't left enough fabric round about the design, so I was wondering what to do with it, I was quite pleased to be able to incorporate it into a card.
This LO is from the 'You can never have too many' challenge and this month it is Flowers. I combined this challenge with the March Sketch (by Caroline Scattergood) challenge on Bubbly Funk Forum. Papers are from the Sunshine Girls Easter Egg hunt (free and still available) which I started via the Sugarplum Paperie site, but these were mostly by AKay (links to all the Sunshine girls blogs are on the Sugarplum Paperie. Some of the elements are from Signs of Spring by Mistca (Digital Scrap Girls). I still have two of the challenges to do before the end of the month, so you will be seeing some more LOs very soon.

I got this beautiful bird stamp as an RAK from Joanne (Angelnorth), it has such a clear image and I love the little bird foot prints, thank you Joanne. The background stamp is an Elusive Images one from Graphicus.

Last, but by no means least, in the Easter treats is the CD book made by Rosie (Freycob), another auction win. I put my crafty CDs in it last night, it is really too good to use every day. It's been sitting on the mantlepiece in our bedroom for a couple of weeks because it goes so well with the orange walls! Just in case you think that sounds a bit odd, the bedroom has a sort of Indian theme with shisha glass and an elephant patchwork hanging which I posted on here a long time ago. Also our house is an old one, hence the fireplace and black marble mantlepiece.

I made two cards and two cakes today as well, a very satisfying and creative day - who cares if it's raining and blowing a gale, I love to get absorbed in making things.

I gave my MIL her card and present tonight as she is going off to early church tomorrow and then on to visit a relative who is in a nursing home. Here is her card:
