Easter Wishes...

Hi all..
Happy Easter Sunday!
We have spent a lovely day with my sister having lunch and then a chocolate egg hunt around the house.  Then a lovely fresh walk down the lane to the farm to look at lots of lambs spronking in the fields.

Here's the last Easter card to show using these great panels from Wild Rose Studio.

 They are perfect for Easter but now thats over I will make Birthday cards with them too.
Mounted on lilac and then onto plain spring green!

Lilac ribbon bows at each end of my Easter bunting.
 The letter tiles are from K&Co and I've had them in my stash for quite a few years.

Some challenges...
Crafty Ribbons...Anything Goes
One stop Craft...Easter
Creative Inspirations...Easter Wishes

Hope you've all celebrated with your family/friends.

Thanks for visiting me.

Easter Wreath..

 Hey there all...
I've been making a few Easter cards.
I kept seeing lots of Easter wreaths on pinterest so thought I would take the idea and transfer to some cards...

 Very simply...Die cut kraft scallop circle with handmade paper centre.
layered with leaves, flowers, eggs and butterflies...
 all mini punches!

 The handmade paper was from The Eden project about 6 years ago...
I made a little stamped greeting tied with fine twine.

This is a great design for using up lots of odds and ends of paper...
I love my daisy punches and using these tiny pearls for the centres.

Some challenges...

Charisma Cardz...Die cuts
Crafty Boots...Flowers

I've made some chocolate krispie nests for school tomorrow and got a few bags of mini eggs. 
Last day and then.... 2 weeks off...Yey! 
 I've got lots of projects to show you and some
  more Easter greetings!

Pop back soon!

Balloons for DAD...

Hello crafty peeps...
Hope you've had a good weekend.
We've had a very rainy day here in West Sussex so I had a good excuse to stay inside and craft.

So here's one I made earlier...

 The stamp is one of Wild Rose Studios new releases...
Great for any card for DAD...
Birthday, Fathers Day, Thank you card etc...

 Coloured with Promarkers...I used glossy accents on the balloons.

 Die cut  Sizzix clouds.

Ribbons and a silver star charm tied around the bottom.
Quite a simple card.

Chocolate Bunnies...

Hi there...
I'm back with another of the very cute Bunny cards that I made for the 
Wild Rose Studio Spring Catalogue.

Coloured with Promarkers...
I was inspired by the Chocolate and Pink spotty ribbon that I had in my stash to colour the image to match.
The background papers are from the Love and Wedding set also new from Wild Rose Studio.

 I added some heart brads, one on the top and one on the kraft tag.
Can't get enough of these lace doillies!

Some challenges...
I love Promarkers...Anything but square
Papertake Weekly...Anything Goes..
(there's an optional extra of a Mothers Day card or Female card)
Hope you all have a FAB weekend!
If I can I may be back with a Mothers Day card...

Hopping Bunny...

Hello there...
Time is just whizzing by again...Easter will soon be here!
It's a short term at school with loads to do and lots of things to make...polystyrene easter eggs have been given out and hoping we can do some cardmaking too.

Just in case you haven't checked out the fabulous Spring range from Wild Rose Studio...My card today is made with one of the gorgeous bunny stamps just released...

 Ideal for Easter cards or Spring birthdays.
 Image coloured with Promarkers...
Papers all from Wild Rose everything matches!

 I used this lovely Orange spot ribbon and silver butterfly charm tied to a Kraft tag!

 I kept my colouring quite soft for my bunny by using Ivory and Blush with a very old Cinnamon...virtually run out but great for blending!

I love Promarkers Challenge this week was Lace and or my lace doilly and Pearl flower centres are perfect!
Crafty Ribbons Challenge is Anything Goes with ribbon.
