Imposter? or just one of easter Bunnies helpers?

Another commissioned Easter card for a 6 year old, but not too babyish, hope I got it right.
This fab and cute image is a Stitchy Bear image that we were given to play with over at Penny's for our challenge earlier in the week.
I don't think they will mind me sharing my card with you all as I was recently asked if I would like to join their design team. Quite funny really as I had been pondering over whether to apply for another DT to bring it up to 3 teams that I am on but wasn't sure so decided I would leave it for now and agreed with myself , rationalised more like, that I would wait to be asked to join a team. If it was meant for me to be on 3 teams then it would happen. I really didn't expect it to, it was just my way of consoling myself. Then out of the blue the lovely Marjo asked if I would like to join the OSAAT team so of course I didn't hesitate and I said yes please. I was so flattered and am slowly finding my way round to popping along to all the other DT members inspiring blogs. It is taking me some time as I go for a quick look and to say hi and get distracted but I will get there.

Back to my card. The image is called Imposter, I coloured with my Promarkers as per, I really do love how they blend. I know those who love Copics swear by them but unless some kind person wants to donate some Copics my way I guess I will never know if they are better or the same or worse than my Promarkers. The only advantage I can see not having any is that you can refill Copics but you can't Promarkers, but Copics are more expensive so who knows.

Please excuse the plug in the background, note to self to move it!

I decided to have a play with card shape and made a half easel card, I did start to make a twisted easel card but wasn't sure it would look right with this image. I stamped some chicks directly onto the card and decorated the rest of the card with last years magazine freebie papers. The sentiment is a cc design and just the right size. The large egg I made using a fiskars shape cutter covered with more paper then added ribbon and a bow. Hope he likes it and doesn't think its too girly.

Hi sweetie this is soooo cute do you know I'm trying to think if I've ever made an easter card cus I cant remember if I started crafting just before or just after easter last year lol.....I would forget hubby's name if it weren't tattoed on my arm lol.
Thanks for asking about Natalie hun she is a lot better her stomach is taking a lot longer to heal so we've kept her off school all week. We will see how she goes over the weekend & hopefully send her in on monday.
Hope you have a fab weekend & hope you get spoilt tomorrow shug.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
