Happy lion

Easter has interfered with my crafting (and blogging) big time. Now that the egg hunts and trips to relatives and endless circle of muffin-baking is behind me for another year, I can once again resume normal functions. lol

I used this lovely lion from Whiff of Joy Party Animals to make a birthday card for a two year old boy. Isn't it a happy coincidence that the lion has two balloons?


I pulled out my distress inks - had got the new colours and had to try them out, obviously. I love the effect distress inks give, really nice vibrant watercolour effect.


Papers are from MME Bloom and Grow range. I am officially addicted to MME papers, if I could have them all, I would. And then I would stroke them every night before I go to bed and weep every time I have to cut into them.

Photo corners from DCWV, brads Pink Paislee, glitter strips from Papermania (amazing value and great fun). I don't remember where the felt ribbon is from. Punch is from MS.

And of course there was a lot of Stickles involved ... I truyly am a magpie. lol


Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Hugs
Annika
