Thinking of you at Easter

I love daffodils, so I've used a beautiful digi image from Crafty Ann - part of a prize I won quite recently - so the digi is for Crafty pad 113: use a digi and Creative card crew: no stamps.

The striped paper is FF spring time and the sentiment was part of a recent QVC Easter kit. I've deliberately kept it simple as I think the daffodils and the sentiment stand well together with nothing else added (although I'm tempted to add something more).

This is for:

Aly's: happy spring
Card cupids: spring inspired card
Cutie Sunday 136: spring colours/images
I did it 47: welcome spring
Inspiration Avenue: hello spring
Creative cottage 35: spring has sprung

Pastel Easter

I love these shaped cards (having originally bought a box of cream and white, I've now also got a box of colours - so I'll be showing lots of these in the future).

I sponged distressed the edges with mustard seed DI - so this is for 365 cards day 23: the ABC of crafting: GHI - I is for ink. It's also for PaperPlay 12: distressing.

I used pastel colours for Colour create 67, which also has the option of Easter.

The image, sentiment and strip of Easter eggs are all lined with gold foiling, which is for DYSU 12: shine on.


Its also for:

I've made a few more Easter cards this evening - here is one of them, using a Personal Impressions stamp designed by Gaham Pilkington, coloured with copics. The background paper is Forever Friends springtime and the torn strip of green and white is Papermania Honey & hugs.

Orange sticky note holder

This is another sticky note holder. The card I've used is DCWV pocketful of posies. I can't remember where the embossed topper came from.

Colours are for SPCC 92:



This is for:

Paws for thought

I really didn't do much crafting yesterday because I was out for the day. This morning a friend came round for a coffee and chat, which was lovely.

This afternoon I set myself the target of making 16 sticky note holders - strips of card scored in a couple of places in the middle and then wrapped around a sticky note block stuck on the base.

So I thought I would show a couple of them now. I've had the gold foiled card embossed with paws for years (when I first started making cards) - pieces of it have been in my offcuts box - so I thought it was about time I used it. I think the stickers were from Poundland (certainly a long time ago now, so I can't really remember).



So these are for these challenges:

Moving along with the times 91: precious metals (the gold foiling)
Tuesday throwdown 41: anything but a card
Secret crafter Saturday 126: anything but a card
Southern girls: add an animal
Cardmakin mamas 17: animals
