Easter Cards

What a day!! After all the warnings about the weather, I was a bit surprised to wake up to a slight wind......the weather, not me!! and thought, they got it wrong! Oh boy, was I wrong!! One minute it has been chucking it down with rain and the next, brilliant sunshine, however, still with the strong winds they predicted.

Had to pop out to Asda to do some shopping which I did in extra quick time, then spent the rest of my free time trying to catch up with my Easter gifts. Have made quite a few today with about another eight to make which I should be able to do this evening and tomorrow morning. Will post a photo of them when they're complete.

In the meantime, have a couple of Easter cards to show, which I put together last night. The first is very similar to my 'boingy' card as it's the same stamp and paper so thought I would make use of the leftovers.





Stamp is Whipper Snapper coloured with Prismas and Sansodor and Brushables, with liquid applique on the ears, c.s., flower and brad are Bazzill and paper is from Blonde Moments.

The second card is from an image Fran sent me.......I fell in love with it so just had to buy the stamp!! This is coloured with Brushables which took about two seconds!! All papers are Pink Petticoat, brad is from Poppicrafts and sentiment is from Just Hatched set at Papertrey Ink. Very quick and simple!


The brad has come out a bit brighter than it is in real life.....it's more of a pastel pink. It's really kind of my Sister to lend me her camera, however, I don't like it and can't wait to get my new one. I think I missed it today while I was shopping, as a parcel was delivered but taken back again. Why is it when you pop out for 30 minutes, the Postie decides to bring your parcels?!!! Anyway, they're re-delivering it tomorrow so I'm going nowhere!!!

So fun! Great layout on these. I love both but I have to say the frog is my favorite for the giggle factor. Great job!

hope it's not too windy where you are - seems we have a temporary lull at the moment. Fab cards you've made, I had some of that Blonde Moments paper as a magazine freebie so will have to dig it out!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
