"Chocolate Decadence" Happy Hoppers meets copics Birthday Card

Good evening everyone


(ooooooooooooooooooo can order some more stamps tonight on my savings for not smoking for the week, little mouses/rabbits here I come...........) 

Isn't it nice that it is the end of the week again, and we get the weekend off work, so more time to be creative.  I created this little number yesterday, but my eyes got a little tired and I did not wish to spoil the introduction to you all, of my second new stamp.  This is "Hop-it" isn't he gorgeous. Well I suppose not if you consider he is stuffing his face, which is exactly what I feel like doing at the moment.  Unfortunately I do not have any chocolate left from xmas so my luck is out for now..................................

I am entering this card into several challenges - obviously I think he warrants it and he is very special.  Or she? do you think I am being sexist.......................... ok he/she or the rabbit...

Colour Create Challenge 36 - Kraft, Blue and White - A tough one and the extra is texture, I did embossing.


I used papermania paper for the beige script element of the colours required. The white I embossed using the cuttlebug to pick up the texture requirement.  The blue is the base and through out running colour.  The flowers from Hobby Craft and the bling and pearls ascending in size from the Hobby House.

So here it is

A close up of the floral arrangement again.........................

and the ever necessary close up of the coloured image, picking up the colours from the card, again this is on the new paper.  I am doing that persevering thing and think I am getting there, however still do prefer my board. I have to say I am still addicted to copics....

Well I am off to have more fun in the "Beach Hut", but before I go I would like to say hello and welcome, to my little blog world, to my two new followers. 

chow for now 

hugs Kate x
