This challenge ends on the 2nd May so you have a whole 28 days to get a project done and entered. 
Maybe you could enter more than once!

This month we are proud to be sponsored by: 

Very many thanks to them - and this is their very first blog sponsorship, so YAH to them and lets hope its a great experience!!They have lots of lovely stuff at their store in Launceston, Tasmania and on-line as well, so why not go over and have a look.  I know that I have spent a lot of time (and money) there over the years!

Our Guest Designer in April is
Victoria Botham

Hi everyone, I’m Victoria (although usually known as Tor or VeryBelleMakes!) and I’m from Essex, England. I am a stay-at-home mum to two great children, aged 7 and 4. I’m also really lucky to be supported and encouraged by a very patient husband, who regularly has to wade through a ton of glitter just to make it to his desk next to mine!

I have enjoyed card-making since my early twenties; I drifted away a bit when my son was small, as there were never enough hours in the day, but now that the children are a little more independent, I’m enjoying picking up where I left off!

Thank you very much to Susan and the Unstampabelles team for having me as a Guest Designer this month!
You are very welcome Tor - and your work is amazing! Just look at this card!

I love those die cut rabbits and their tails!

Now the DT here at Unstampabelles are also pretty darn good too, and here are the pieces they have produced to inspire you for this challenge!

Mr. Bunny is on an Action Wobble. 

She loves retro and vintage styles, so opted to work with some retro collage sheets.

She likes a bit of bling, so the pastel blue dragonfly is keeping the chipboard bunny company.

Love the butterflies

Margaret's card uses a sticker

An easel card

Pretty colours


Rabbits and Easter always go together in our house!

If you follow the links from the DT's name to their posts on their blogs you can find out more about how the card was made.  Your entry does not have to be a card - it can be anything that follows the theme and is paper base and has not used stamps - digital, rubber or cling!  It does not have to be an Easter theme, but if you need to get another card done using that theme, be our guest!

Just remember, your project has to have an animal or a bird in it, and if you are going to add the TWIST you need to work in mainly PASTEL colours.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. The Design Team really appreciate it. Have fun with the challenge.
