Another hectic month here! We have near enough got everything for our house and trying to sell off those extra pieces that no longer fit into our scheme.
With my new Facebook page I offered a free card for a lady who needed a card make quickly for a friend of hers who was celebrating the birth of her twins. She was struggling to find a card for a twin boy and a girl as there were plenty with either pink, female twin or blue, male twin cards.
I used the very adorable 'Spit Happens' digi stamp by Mo Manning. I mirrored the image through Paint.net and layered the bunny ears over eachother. Once I printed it out, I coloured in with Promarkers, hand cut out the image; using the craft knife in parts I couldn't reach, used a piece of foam to support the picture, whilst I used an embossing tool behind to bend out and mold the image, I stuck it down with foam pads for a quick drying solution.
For a more efficient, money saving and green way, we have also started growing our own vegetables, Ed put up a little green house in the garden which we need to fill and a few bits growing on the window ledge.
I've also taken up learning to decorate a cake properly, one evening a week with a few friends, one which is a highly skilled cake decorator, we started by baking a cake, filling in any holes or gaps, covering with mazipan and icing it. Next time we are learning to make flowers, which should be pretty cool! Let's just hope they look like flowers!
The adorable little fluff ball in the picture above, is our new family member - Marvin.
Marvin was bought to a rescue centre extremely young with his twin brother.
Their mother was a mini lop and their father was a Netherland.
Tiny Paws Rehoming is a newly organised rescue home for little fluffies such as rabbits, guinea pigs and others tiny creatures, they are based at someone's home and looking to become a registered charity, I shall help them out in fundraising the best I can! They take on little creatures, get them neutered, give them all of there injections and treat them if needed, to go on to re-home them. They generally don't keep the bunnies for very long as they are quickly rehomed or found a foster family, but my poor little one, was with them pretty much from birth until 5 months later when he caught our eye. He is the sweetest, smallest, cuddlest bunny I have ever seen, he is so friendly I was amazed! Even though he is so friendly and cute, nobody wanted him due to his colouring, so we bought him home with us Sunday, he seemed to of settled in and LOVES his cuddles. We are so pleased with him and cannot think why anyone wouldn't want him! But maybe it was meant to be and he was left there to become part of our family :)
If you have lasted this long in reading about my last few weeks, thank you very much! Your time is very much appreciated and I am so happy to have you here. Giveaway to come in the next few weeks, so keep your beady bunny eyes peeled! ;)
