Happy Easter

Well the weather has not improved much has it, still very cold and some snow hanging about.
I have  some Easter cards to show you today, lovely spring colours - spring? British Summer Time starts this weekend!! don't forget to put your clocks forward - yes an hour less in bed. This weather needs to catch up!

Back to the cards made with the LOTV "Spring bunny with eggs" stamp. I had a go at colouring him in browns and then the greys using my copics.

The papers were from my stash and the border was cut with a Spellbinder - "in spades border" and the little bits that fell out were utilised on the corners of my mounted up image.The image was cut out also using Spellbinders - "Romantic rectangles" and then inked with a little distress ink (Antique Linen) to soften the white. A touch of glamour dust to the eggs and his tail. The sentiment is also from LOTV -  "Happy Circular Sentiments"
Next one up coloured in grey and using the lovely purple and green from the "promises" paper pad also from LOTV

similar idea but the border was a Martha Stewart punch this time, and I added a bow, mainly because this card was not being posted so didn't need to keep it thin! I also mounted the image on 3D foam pads.

and lastly a slight variation on the die , this time Spellbinders - "Floral Ovals"

Well folks hope you like, and I hope you all have a lovely Easter break despite the cold. A good excuse to stay in, eat chocolate and craft. Hope you get lots of chocolate!

Back next week

Happy Mother's Day

Hi there, and A Happy Mother's Day to all the mum's out there, hope you are all being spoilt and pampered.

I thought I would share with you all my Mother's Day card for my mum along with the box I had to create to put it in because of the flowers on the card.
First the card

and then the box (it had a plain bottom) and the top was from a sheet of Kanban card.

close up of the flower made from a combination of Spellbinders jewel flowers and flourishes and a Memory Box die, and a  bit of stickles Stardust in the centre. Got to have a bit of bling.

 and both together

Enjoy your day! I am off to visit my mum this afternoon and take her goodies, lets hope she likes!
