Happy Easter everyone

hi all

well like all holidays - don't they just fly past.!

Can't believe it is already Easter Sunday and for once am not working over a Bank holiday  and I shall be celebrating that fact with my mum and my sister and along with a few chocolate treats!.

... and of course just needed to make an Easter card to mark the occasion.

I used Daffodil Delight as a base with Whisper White for the topper and opted to round a couple of the corners. A few repetitions of one of the stamps from Stampin Up's Flowering Flourishes stamp set for surface decoration to offset  the label which I stamped in  Basic Grey,   then cut, sponged and matted for a bit of interest.  Some hand colouring with my Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive markers and a blender pen,  Candy dots plus toning ribbon to go with - and herewith one card.

(My sentiment is alas from a retired set - but chose to use it as think it fitted the overall sizing I was after).

...and of course making a matching envelope is so so easy with the brilliant Envelope Punch board and its such a fantastic way of using up all your  DSP bit and pieces!

The one I used is a retired one (Beyond the Garden) but I keep thinking I see rabbits ears hidden in the flowers, so just had to use it!
What do you think.?

Well  as they are visiting me - I am on  'tea and scones'  duty - 'teasies at threesies' as we always call it  - but am thinking sitting outside to eat them is probably not an option, well today, at least!

...but hoping your day is filled with things of a chocolate variety - and  speaking of chocolate have to admit ours will certainly include some of  those  well known bunnies in the gold wrapper, complete with red ribbon tie.

have a lovely Easter, everyone

Until next time.

  1. Hope you had a fabulous Easter Jan. Your card is so pretty and springlike although I hadn't noticed the rabbit ears until you mentioned it! Love the idea of teasies at threesies and can see that catching on in our family too! Vicky x

    1. Dear Vicky -thanks so much as always -we did have a lovely Easter break, thank you.. despite taking tea 'this side of the glass' rather than outside! The little 'rabbit ears' made me do a double take as well and once I saw the first set, I keep seeing them..!
      Hope you had a lovely break as well. kind regards


Thanks very much, everyone. I so much appreciate them all.
