Muffins and Bunnies

Getting out the Christmas decorations got me thinking about traditions. Nichole has decided that she's going to plan the living room and I'm really curious to how many of the things I used to do made an impression on her. One tradition I can't let go of is making blueberry muffins on Christmas morning. When I saw Tilda with Rolls at Summer's shop, Roses on Paper, I knew I had to have her because she reminded me of my girls in their nightgowns Christmas morning chowing down.

I colored her with copics and mounted her on card stock cut out with my circle nestabilities. The Papers are Euphoria from Basic Grey and the flowers are Primas. I was so excited because on her socks and on her basket I used Flower Soft. I love how she came out. You can purchase everything you need for her from Summer! Go say "Hello"!

When my girls were little we got them a bunny for Easter. He was gray and we named him Smokey. The girls loved him and would screech around the house after him. He was great fun till he got out! This cutie, Fairy With Bunny, can be picked up from Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. When I saw her, pansies came to mind and purple just popped right out at me! I love her beautiful face. Her eyes are so entrancing!

I colored her with copics and used my Atyou Spica Clear glitter pen in her hair on on the flowers. I put crystal Stickles on her wings and Dew Drops on the corners. I stamped a flourish on the purple card stock with my new VersaMark Dazzle in Champagne and embossed it with clear embossing powder. It doesn't show very well in the picture, but it has the prettiest, lightest tink of sparkle to the background. I just adore her and hope you all go visit Susana's shop. She's got fabulous stamps and accessories in her store and don't miss your chance for her great web candy. And don't forget Suzanne's blog candy! Great, calorie-free stuff there!

Well, I'm off to bed. Hope everyone is having a great time this time of the year with their own traditions and faerie magic.

Hey Susan,
Your Faery in the pansys is beautiful! Love the use of purples and the touches of yellow in the flowers makes them look real :o) Also really liked the use of contrast in the card layout!!!
