Blogging IS Addictive LOL!!!

Hello again to all crafty bloggers! Hope you are well!

Well, you were not wrong when you say that blogging is addictive!

Can't belive it is already Wednesday, I only set up on Saturday!! Time is flying......

There is also so much to see and learn from the other blogs, there isn't enough time in the day LOL! Yet alone working, finding the time to craft at all, learning the IT that goes along with the blog and just generally keeping up with things!!! Phew, it all crazy and exciting at the same time! xXx

Thank you to those lovely crafters who have taken the time to visit me and leaving your kind messages from Craftingranny's Card Shack and a big hearty 'Thank You' to Carol for your kind words and encouragement! It is indeed a scary time but a very exciting one. I will be visiting you all, so please bear with me. I feel like I am in a maze at the mo!!

In the spirit of things, I have managed to create a couple of cards for a couple of challenges that I came across. This is also something I have not done there are massive learning curves going on this week...

The first one is from the 'Friday Sketcher Challenge #145' I am sorry but I can't remember who's blog I was on when I 'stumbled' upon it, I will take note next time :)

I followed the sketch and made a topper with one of those little cotton bunnies, sorry to keep using them but I am addicted to them!! They are sooo cute and lovely to colour with my pencils. I have not been converted to copics or promarkers...yet...I find I have more control with pencils but I have still found that I have gone outside the lines...OOPS!!

Sorry Carol ... I know you hate gold and brown ... lol!!!

The 2nd challenge is from the Sketch Saturday blog #146:
where the theme is 'Circles'.

I thought, shall I colour in another bunny??? Better not eh!! So I went for a cute little House Mouse instead and this is the result...

I have also just found the housemouse-challenge so I will enter my little house mouse, the theme is Spring but I hope this card will be OK to enter...fingers crossed! xXx

Thank you again for taking a look xXx
Hugs, Annie


  1. Both cards are just adorable! That little bunny image is the cutest! Challenges are the bomb and so addictive!

  2. Oh Annie, I don't hate gold and brown, I love the color combo it's just that my fav hues are purples and Both of these cards are just adorable and that bunny is so cute. Great take on the sketch! Of course, I love HM stamps too and the way you've colored him is fab.

    Congrats on playing in the challenges, they are very addictive, as is blogging, and I'm so glad you are enjoying it. Good luck! Great talent you have to share with all of us. "Hugs" Carol

  4. Hi Annie, these are cute cards. And the House-Mouse card has such a cute layout. Easter is certainly Springy-so this def qualifies for a Spring card. Its Fun, colorful and adorable. Thanks so much for joining us at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog. Hope to see you again next time. :)

  5. Hi Annie, welcome to House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, and to blogland!! It is time consuming and addictive. Your card is so darn cute, the egg is as big as the mouse!
