Show & Tell: Hop to it

Hi Lovely People,

Show & Tell Thursday's

Yay for a long weekend!  What are your plans?

A week or so a go a friend and I caught up and got stuck into some Easter craft.

These cute little bunny softies were cut out from vintage linens. I am totally in love with them!  They are the same on both sides except for the purple-ish cross stitch one which is plan on it's other side.  And oh so easy to make!

Cut out, stitch, stuff! Whala! The pattern suggested a pom-pom tail but I decided in the end that the embroidery around their bums were beautiful and really didn't want to detract from it.

They couldn't be easier, and cuter! Love them and of course the girls will get to claim one each over the weekend : )

Have you gotten stuck into any Easter craft lately? Cant wait to see what you will share!

Have a great, safe, Blessed, long weekend lovely people.

A: You are so ready for the holidays but when you're distracted and happy, the delight on your face is magical.
- You got your school report which was awesome, complete with a classic line from you: I knew what I wanted to do, the picture was in my brain and looked like this and so that's just what I did. Isn't it pretty?"

L: You love wearing your togs during the day, though "I'm not going whimming Mummy" you assure me.
- Whilst Mum and Dad were trying to ask big sis to compose herself and not lose her marbles, you piped up: "I've got all my marbles!" Referring of course to your actual marbles, too funny :)
- With your birthday approaching I asked your two sisters quietly what we should get you as a present. From the other end of the house you yelled: "Chocolate! And Lollies!"... supersonic hearing and a response that is so you and makes us laugh :)

H: Tunnels and climbing before heading off to a birthday party - the only girl invited among all the boys. Testament to your lovely nature and ability to play with anyone.
- Big sis was deciding whether she wanted a second helping of dinner and explained she was waiting to hear what her tummy had to say... So you piped up: "Nooooo! it's not your tummy that will tell you, it's your brain!"

Show & Tell: Tool-time

Oh hi! How are you?

Show & Tell Thursday's

I may have mentioned a long time ago that I like to make greeting/birthday cards. I've made heaps over the years - some a bit cute, some nice but not spectacular, some that had a bit more x-factor.

This one was for a friends tool-obsessed little boy. Browsing pictures the night before to find a bob-the-builder, or handy-manny or something like that to use... This idea came to me instead!

A toolbox with removable tools! Ha! I love it, love it!

And the little dude did too as he was dead keen to play with it! Win!

Are you a card-maker? Any cute and clever tricks or tips to share on the card-giving front?
Looking forward to hearing from and seeing you all!
Have a terrific day!

L: What a week you and I've had... but that little face and smile and tiny dimple, gets me everytime.
H: You've adopted my old doll and she has never been as well loved as by you... Even in the midst of scooter tag and a flurry of action you take care of her lovingly.
A: Always on the move, climbing, jiggling, running... your energy and capabilities know no bounds despite falling over...alot!

Still I call it magic, when I'm next to you

I may be a teensy tiny bit excited about the upcoming album... specially as this song is magic... ;)

Have a groovy weekend all!
