Prima botanical


Prima botanical is the name of the background paper I've used for this Easter card, the sentiment stamp is Papermania inked with memento rich cocoa and the flowers were from Create and Craft. The butterfly stamp is one of my favourites - swirling wings by Lindsay Mason - with just a few little pearls added to match the organza and pearls flowers.

Happy Easter


Today I made a start on making Easter cards - need to make a lot before my charity sale Saturday week - managed to make six today and this is the first one. I dug out some very old K & Co papers - this one is taken from the 'daffodil' pad, mounted on to a card blank with a ready cut fancy edge (got some of these at Hobbycraft when I had a 25% off voucher - wish I'd bought more) distressed with shabby shutters DI. The decoupaged paper flowers are Docrafts (bought last year and not used then). Sentiment (from a Forever Friends set of stamps) inked with memento rich cocoa.

Time for Christmas pud ...


... not really - although I do have two Christmas puddings in the freezer that I made last Christmas. I don't actually like it - can only eat it if it's plastered with some cointreau or brandy butter and lots of sauce or custard. Anyway, I digress ...

This card is a quick on based on the sketch for Holly Jolly this week (I hope I haven't deviated from the sketch too much):


This is also for Sandra's Rudolph Day for February and a late one for Sunday's with Santa facebook week 7: food (yay! I'm up to date now).

The background card, topper and sentiment are from a Hunkydory kit with just the addition of a piece of Paper Cellar glittered ribbon.

This was one of those 'difficult to get a photo on a dull day' cards! I tried and tried and this was the best I could manage without bits being obliterated by the glare of the flash.
