Free Digital Bunny Colouring Page

Hello friends! Trying to keep a little one happy and occupied during this time is not always easy, but don’t panic, there are many wonderful resources out there! One of my favourites for all ages is National Geographic. Take a look, they’ve curated a page of links to project based resources for K-12 kids and adults young at heart! I saw a darling bunny poking around in our backyard a few days ago and I was inspired! Spring is coming folks, and sunnier days ahead, so stay strong, positive and looking forward. I created a little bunny image that I hope you’ll agree is cute, cute cute! I’m offering it as a free download for your children to colour. Please feel free to download and print one or several…play is good for our health and happiness! Pass it on! 8×8 Bunny Colouring Page

Thinking 0f Our Mothers

It’s time for our MAY CHALLENGE: Favourite Moments with Mom (or a Mother figure in your life) Think of special moments with your Mom, from your childhood or adult life.  Maybe you remember baking cookies, family dinners, travelling, or walks in the park, soccer practice, or bedtime stories. Whatever it is that brings back happy memories for you should be what you work into your project for this month. HOW you work it in is up to you! Just let it be the inspiration for your project.  If you’d like to share your thoughts  about Mom with us  in describing what inspired your creation, that would be wonderful! Our team has created some personal projects for you here to help get you started! Peggy made this sweet bookmark. She shares a special love of books with her Mom.   Memories of Merlina’s Mom inspired this sweet card. Ice Cream sundaes bring back sweet memories for Kitt As always the images used by the design team are available  in the A Creative Need Shop. There are new images added monthly! Join in the …

Challenge Inspiration

Hello my kind friends!  Have you been creative? Have you been good to yourselves and allowed yourselves time to imagine/create/paint/sketch/write/design  something YOU love? It’s so important to do this you know!  You need to let go of all the reasons why you can’t create and give yourself permission to do what you love for a few hours a week!  Put everything else aside, it’s o.k. really!! You will see!  It’s a very LOUD world.  You need to make a choice to turn it all off sometimes. You will benefit from it immensely and you will find that the rest of your week will be all the better for it! Do it for yourself. I gave myself time this week to make a MIXED MEDIA Digital Collage piece…and loved every minute of it! I used my digital image “Feathered Friend”.  This was a joyful piece to work on for our Textures and/or Patterns CHALLENGE this month, and I loved layering, gessoing and painting over the papers! I hope you can see this through the photo. Gail is also …

Over the Edge

CAS-ual Fridays’ challenge this week has gone OVER THE EDGE!  And I just had to join in! I colored the ACN  LOVE BIRDS image with copics and cut them out.  I placed the birds on a watercolor background that I painted using Corel Painter Essentials.  Then, I punched a simple border for the bottom and added a splash of color with the felt foam flowers and buttons.  I also added a tab ribbon in the bottom right for Splitcoaststamper’s challenge ‘tags &tabs’ that I think helped balance out the over the edge look of the birds at the top left.

Forever

I have a guilty conscience…and just have to admit…that I spent an ENORMOUS amount of time perusing LilyBean Paperie’s blog today!  Melissa’s cards are so inspiring!  I probably should have been doing laundry or sweeping, but I just couldn’t help myself!  Although I know I could not make a card that comes close to her beauties, I do take some comfort in knowing that I can take a few elements of her gorgeous style and incorporate them into my CAS style. I loved the look of her  ‘Speak love’ CARD and I took the element of key and banner and made a little tag to mount on on this lavender 4 1/4 square card. The CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers this week is ‘tags & tabs’  which also helped inspire this card.   The vintage key was a gift form a fellow blogger and the paper is digital dp  that I created using my own Pear Blossom stamp.  I paper punched the heart and used a metallic gold paint pen and glitter pen to give it a golden …
