Lovely Sunshine and a fluffy bum....

Good Afternoon
Hmmmm! better make that Good evening now!
WOW what a wonderful day we have had fabulous warm/hot sunny day the weather has been awesome I so love the sunshine,
I have made a card and here I wanted to show you a snipet first so you can see the flower soft on this little LOTV bunny, as you can see he has a fluffy bum! tehehehe I did have a giggle to myself when I wrote the title of this post! tehhehee
I also added some to his belly! but once it was dry it looked a bit odd so I rubbed it off.

This is my second post today so if your looking for my Incy Wincy post please scroll down...
I have been a busy bee again today and have done all my washing and ironing it was so beautiful this morning I was up nice and early and have managed to get all the beds changed and the linen washed and dried too! YAY!
I also cooked soup ready for Lunch for Sandra and I tomorrow as I am at work, and I made a Panettone, my first ever one I made a few years ago did not rise very much! and it was a bit of a disaster!
But this one that I have made today I have used a different recipe you have to raise it a few times and its kinda time consuming to make and when you do the final raise before cooking you have to line the tin with a backing parchment and make a high collar so it raises up loads! FINGERS Crossed! This is what it looked like before the final raise

A Panettone is a round yeast fruitcake from Italy, traditionally eaten at Christmas and Easter... so I am practising! lol!
So after the final raise and cooking it here is the result

Ohhh I am looking forward to breakfast yum! I'll try to remember to take a photo when I cut it as it will look completely different its not as dark as it looks here,
So then!
I also had some spare time today to finish a card! and its not for a Dt post either! thehehheee

I have coloured this CUTE little LOTV bunny in with distress re inkers and a paint brush... Can't wait for my distress markers to arrive! thehhehe
the Clouds are hand cut and I have had real fun with this card as I did some clouds too! and the big yellow flowers are wooden I have distressed those too!
I have used a fabulous sketch which is one of the challenges that inspired my card

This one is a keeper for sure!

I took this picture today while I was hanging out my washing on the line I saw this little beauty sitting on my neighbours aerial so rushed in for the camera
I was so chuffed with this picture we often get these birds here but I am not 100% sure what it is I think its a kesteral but I am not sure?
