Christmas Designs 2 - Snow Angel Bella!

Good Evening! I am pleased so say that hot off the press, I have my second Christmas card design of this year to show you! I hope you like!
This is the first time that I have created a Bella design since my Christmas card in back 2010 which was featured in; "The Story of Bobby Bunny & My Illustrating so Far....." post in September. For those of you that don’t know Bella is Bobby bunnies little childhood friend. It was nice drawing her again, I like drawing a girly bunny here and there as it mixes it up a bit, plus I like being able to draw her in pretty little clothes. Me being me I thought that this would be quite a straightforward image to do, but as usual I underestimated the task in hand. As it so happens trying to make Bella look like she was making a convincing snow angel, was quite a challenge but I go there in the end!

On another note thanks for the First Anniversary wishes! We both had a lovely day and the hubby even sent me flowers to work which was very unexpected, as it's not the sort of thing that he normally does! In fact it almost made me tear up it was that unexpected, but what a lovely surprise. I think that he thought I was a bit ridiculous tearing up, as they were only flowers as he put it. But I don’t think that men realise that it's the thought behind them that means just as much, if not more to us women than the flowers themselves. We also enjoyed our meal out at a new restaurant near us, then went back opened the bubbly and stuck on our wedding DVD to reminisce as planned. All in all it was a great First Anniversary and we hope to have many more in the future!

I will leave you with a few pics of the flowers, have a good evening x

Christmas Designs - Ice Skating Bobby!


Hello there! I hope that you well and thanks for popping in! Sorry that I haven't blogged for a bit again. My absence was due to the fact that I have been busy working away on some new Bobby Christmas designs! I love designing cards for Christmas as it's always been my favourite time of year. I love the cold nights, snuggling up on the sofa, the smells, lights, food, spending time with family, and the general magical feel you get in the air. Up until this year I have only ever done one Christmas design a year, as I usually end up running out of time. This year however I have had so many ideas that I have been working on three Bobby designs, one of which I have finished and the others will be soon to follow as they now just need colour. The first design that I have just finished this morning is Skating Bobby as you can see below:

I am pretty pleased with how he has turned out, although it did take a little while to get him from start to finish with generating the ideas, deciding on clothing, colour schemes and particularly the pose. As I had decided in my mind that I wanted him skating in motion, (oh how I like to make life difficult for myself!) It was a little challenging to get the pose of the feet right, but I persevered and after a few sketches I manage to crack it I think. Please let me know your thoughts.

Right I am now off to carry on with my next design for a bit before work, then I’m off for a meal with the hubby this evening as it is our first Wedding Anniversary. I don’t know where the time has gone, this last year has flown by it doesn't seem possible that it has been that long already. It was such a lovely day filled with so many happy memories and beautiful weather. I think that we may have to crack open a bottle of Champers tonight and reminisce watching our Wedding DVD. Have a good week x
