How about a quickie?!

***If you are taking part in the blog hop please see my previous post {here}

It's time to catch our breath after all the excitement of new Stampotique stamps being released and the blog hop which was great fun!! Time to enjoy this weeks challenge which is being hosted by lovely {Sue} who is asking us to make something in 30 minutes or less.
I admit to panicking A LOT. Things I make tend to take hours. So I quickly cut out a strip of circles using my Cuttlebug and glued it down and splashed some paint on to some card! I stencilled stars and circles and then was quickly running out of time to colour the bunny so he got a really quick wash with watercolours. The cloud was left over from a previous project that didn't go to plan.
The stamps I used are:
All of the challenge details can be {here} at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog.

Wishing you a lovely day. Sam xxx
