Finally unpacked ... sort of

Update: This card was chosen as one of the top 3 at Simply Create! Yay!
----------------------------------       

I have finally completed my move, unpacked the majority of my boxes, and set up my crafting supplies. It's been so long since I've done anything creative (does arranging pots & pans in the cupboards count as creative? I think not) that I decided to start back with something simple.
I used one of my favourite digital stamps - "Follow the leader" from Pollycraft - which I coloured using Copic markers. The papers are from We R Memory Keepers. I needed a boost for my creativity so I chose this sketch from Scrapbook Essentials BC.

Now that I've broken the crafting drought, I'm going to get working on more Easter cards so that I can donate a bunch (including this one, of course) to BC Childrens Hospital (via Send A Smile 4 Kids Canada).  
Challenges:


  • Cute Card Thursday - winged things
  • iCopic Challenge - animal
  • Moving Along With the Times - lots of layers (I used 4)
  • Papercrafting Journey - make it cute (what's cuter than duckies)
  • Simon Says Stamp - 3 different papers
  • Simply Create Too - add sunshine to your day
  • Sisterhood of Crafters - use a digi
  • Stamp Man - colours of Spring/Easter
  • Truly Scrumptious - all creatures great & small
