Knitted Jumper with Beanie and Hunny Bunny Marci Easter Card

Hi all, hope you are all well, things have been a little busy here so not had much time for blogging but will be catching up with you all soon.
First I would like to spread the word from Dawny's blog who is asking crafters to knit these special knitted jumpers and beanies for babies in India (called the newspaper babies) full details on her blog.  So Rosanna and I got our knitting needles out and this is the set I made and we are still knitting Rosanna's set together (working from each end of the ball of wool lol!) which hopefully will be finished soon.  So girls if you have time please get those needles out. 

Here is Annabel modelling the Jumper and Beanie

Here is what the look like off the model

Now onto my inpsiration over at the Mad for Markers Store Blog I would like to show you this wonderful fun image from LaLa Land 'Hunny Bunny Marci' I was lucky to win her in Karen's Easter Candy, but she is available from the Store here
Rosanna and I were crafting and the Big Shot came out.  Rosanna had a go at embossing alsorts of things and embossed the purple foil paper from her Easter Egg for me, I then glued it to some card (very carefully lol). 

A closer look at the spicas and special effects and the lovely embossing

Gorgeous copics, spicas and multiliners used
Xpress It Double sided tape, Xpress It foam mounting tape, copics, spicas and a huge selection of stamps all available from our Mad for Markers Store
We would to see your creations in our new challenge Mad for Markers April Showers Challenge.  To colour something to look Wet.

Thank you for visiting, happy crafting and have a wonderful weekend.  Take careX:)
