I do love Poundland bargains

I happened to stray into Poundland the other day (as you do!) and saw some crocheted flowers and thought they would come in handy for Easter cards - there were two or three different colours - unfortuantely, I only bought one pack of each and when I went back a couple of days later they didn't have any - wish I'd bought more in the first place - hopefully they'll have them in again.

The first card uses one of my favourite spring time stamps 'Funstamps daffodil oval'. The striped paper is FF spring time. The centres of the flowers used on this card are actually brads (I didn't even realise this when I bought them).

The second card uses another favourite Easter stamp by Personal impressions. There's no designer paper on this card - just a pearlescent card cut out on the left and computer generated wording - and, of course, the addition of the Poundland flowers.

These are for:

  1. I just learned to make crocheted flowers for cards so I'm very happy to see them being used! Lovely Easter card. Love that big Daffodil! Can't wait to see them in my yard. The crocuses popped up to let me know Spring is on the way but I still need to see my Daffodils and Tulips before I know it's really here!

    Thanks so much for playing along with Stamping Vacation's challenges! This earns you entry in the May 1st drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate to the store of your choice.
