Happy Easter Day - Sunday 31st March

Good Morning Friends,

Wow..thank you all for your lovely comments on my Hen wall plaque, I was blown away...I think it's the most comments I've had to date! I was so pleased you all liked it. I made it for Sunday Stampers, but apart from the bag a few weeks ago, it was the first 'big' project I have had the chance to create lately that was pure play - just for me and I did enjoy it so much!

I hope you are all enjoying the Easter Weekend and for those of you with snow, that it is starting to disappear. We have been blessed with quite a bit of sunshine, but it doesn't get any warmer! Our brunch was lovely, everyone enjoyed it, so we can tick off another successful festive food gathering :)

Today we are going to Tom's parents' house for another family get together and a traditional Sunday I have been making some more baskets..which I will post tomorrow, along with some photos of our hens, as my final Easter offering.

Today though, is one of the Easter cards I made for the craft fair a few weeks ago (it seems much longer). I made just ten, some fun and some more religious, and sold them all, which was great.

This card is made almost entirely with Spellbinder dies: I used Large Decorative Ovals to create the card shape and cut it using a duck egg colour polka dot card from  my 12x12 stash (I think it is by DoCrafts). The crosses were die cut with Crosses Two and it is actually white card for both crosses, but I inked them with weathered wood distress ink and to give them more of a rustic/antiqued look I also used antique linen quite roughly around the edges. The little flowers are from a punch and I cut them showing the reverse side of the same card. I didn't photograph the inside of the card, but it shows the same colours as the little flowers and reads 'Easter Blessings', which was printed from my computer.

I wish you all a very Happy Easter and see you tomorrow!
