One Layer Time at Less is More

Couldn't resist this little Penny Black Easter bunny!
He's coloured with watercolour pencils, blended with a water brush! The sentiment is also Penny Black.
I am having to take pictures with my phone at the moment as my camera has gone into a decline and is refusing to give up the SD card. When I attach the cable to the camera, the only images available are the ones saved to the camera's memory, not the SD card's. Something is very wrong!
Here is one of the little elephants from the Unforgettable set from Wplus9. He is also coloured with watercolour pencils.
This last one is a cow from Artemio and the bee and grass from Avery Elle. The sentiment is computer generated.
Water colour pencils once more!

This last card is for a few challenges.
The frames were cut with SSS stitched rectangles, lengthened slightly to fit a British card base, the stamps are from SU Kinda Eclectic and Gorgeous Grunge, stamped with DIs  in Mowed  Lawn, Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord and Antique Linen. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, embossed in WOW Pale Gold EP and die-cut with a SSS Stitched oval.

We have our grandchildren here for the weekend for Mother's Day... we should have fun!
