Dandelion Clock and …. Sidney

This week’s Lili of the Valley challenge is Spring.  Now to be honest I have loads of LOTV bunnies, but I have not caught up after two weekends away, and this image was coloured at the NEC which is a perfect match the new kit from Nitwit Collections.  So, 10 minutes later a card was made.  The new kit is just gorgeous, crammed full of hot pinks, lime green, yellow, orange and white.  I printed out so many sheets I will have enough backing papers to last me for months lol.


The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I pulled the centres out of the flowers and popped a pearl brad and spacer in to jazz them up.  I also fluffed up the petals after I had spritzed them with glimmer mist for a pit extra texture.
Dandelion Clock was coloured with Copics and Prisma Pencils. 


And now for Sidney.  I have had such a busy couple of weeks my feet have not touched the ground but when I got a call to go and rehome two little boys that I bred 5 and 6 years ago well everything else just took a back seat.  We went through to fetch them last night (thanks Karen xxx), my daughter has taken Sonny and I have kept Sidney.  My son-in-law and Sonny bonded right away and were stuck to each other like glue last night lol.  Sidney and my daughter’s cavalier boy Joey bonded really well so it’s a shame that Sidders has come to live with me but I am sure he will settle in his very own harem with my 6 girls lol.  He is going to pay the nice vet a visit asap to get the snip, sssshhhh don’t let him hear me say that lol.

So, here he is in all his glory, he looks a bit tatty and ragged but he will look a load better after he has a session with the groomer.  The photo is not the best, it was taken late last night and he is not at all orange like he looks in the pic, he is a rich tan so I will try and get some better photos of him and his harem on the weekend.
