Delicious doodles crocus for Easter

These are two cards made using the Delicious doodles crocus digital image - the first one was coloured digitially in Paint and the second one coloured with copics. Both cards use FF spring time papers and the second card also has a piece of DCWV pocket full of posies from my offcuts box. I used an embossing folder on the first card for a bit of texture and some stitched ribbon on the second card.

Rainbow of colours for Easter

Another Easter card, this time a fun one with a couple of chipboard glittered chicks. Crop stop 16 is asking us to use the colours of the rainbow, so I think this qualifies. Day 50 on 365 cards is 'blog inspired' - inspired by the blog header, which is a rainbow of colours. (this reminds me that I've fallen by the wayside yet again as far as the 365 challenges are concerned - I started off the new year so well, but a week away and other things have meant that I've got behind).

The papers (well they are card really) are Kanban from a QVC kit and the pastel ribbon across the bottom is some that I've had for ages and had forgotten about - sorry, you can't see the 'Happy Easter' on the ribbon very easily here.

And another I made earlier

Here's another Easter card, this time using a favourite Magenta daisy stamp coloured with copics. Main paper is PM Honey & hugs and the pieces for matting ar FF spring time. The sentiment is a PM stamp (have used this loads of times this Easter, including on inserts - love it). The colours are for Paper pretties 150: pink, green, plus neutral and also for Pink elephant 98 colour challenge:

Here's one I made earlier

Still no crafting here. John had his op on Tuesday - recovery going well so far. Thanks for all the best wishes. And yesterday we've had our DIL and girls here, which was lovely - we sat in the garden and the girls did some crafting.

For this card I used another shaped blank (I do like these cards), distressing the edges first with mustard seed DI and then with shabby shutters.

The image is Karen's doodles Easter cross digi, coloured with copics. Sentiments are computer generated and printed.
