Somebunny Loves You

It's nearly chocolate egg time lovelies, hope you are looking forward to a relaxing Easter weekend :-) We are diving into decorating Jack's bedroom tomorrow. He has chosen a wallpaper for a feature wall and then we are painting the other 3 walls. So busy, busy, busy!

I think this cute bunny from Time For Tea Designs could be used on birthday or new baby cards as well as Easter cards...

Paper - Baby Mine Girl by Carta Bella
Flowers - Marianne Design & stash

Happy Easter...

Morning crafty peeps. Hope you had a good weekend. The rugby tournament on Sunday was really good :-) Jack's team played their socks off and did themselves, the coaches and us parents proud. The theme for their weekend away was 'Hawaii' so they all wore Hawaiian shirts to travel in, they looked great.

Here's a quick and easy Easter card using a Lili of the Valley topper that I have die cut into a circle and lots of yellow...


Supplies:
Image - old LOTV die cut topper
Paper - Baby Mine Girl by Carta Bella
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat
Buttons & doily - stash
Ribbon - ebay
Other - Spellbinders circle & scallop circle dies, Spellbinders label die, brown inkpad, twine, kraft card

Dancing Ducks for Easter...

Good morning, we are off school shoe shopping soon (yawn!) and maybe some lunch out. I am enjoying my time off work so far. Oldest son is off to Norfolk tomorrow for the weekend with his rugby team so I have his packing to do later today. He's very much looking forward to it :-)

I am going to give this card to my mum and dad for Easter. I've gone for white ducks so not much in the way of colouring was required ;-) As soon as I saw this cute image I thought Easter but I think it would be suitable for other occasions too, maybe anniversary...?


Supplies:
Image - Dancing Ducks by Circa Designs coloured with Promarkers
Paper - can't remember, sorry
Resin flower, ribbon & pearl - stasg
Other - Memory Box Precious Daisies die, Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die, Whimsy Stamps Picket Fence die, Spellbinders oval & scallop oval dies, brown inkpad, kraft card

Easter gifts

Good morning! We are at home today as we have an engineer coming to service the boiler and the timescale they have given is 8.30-6.30!!! I hope to get a bit of crafting done and will ignore the ever growing pile of ironing ;-) I usually sort something to give to the boys' teachers for Easter and this year this is what I put together. There are 3 Creme Eggs in the bag and I made 10 bags in total (6 for the boys' teachers and teaching assistants and 4 for the ladies I work with at school). I used a pre-printed image to speed up my production, it is an old Peter Rabbit image made into a round shape so all I needed to do was print and cut.

Supplies:
Image -  Peter Rabbit Round Tags from Nicecrane Designs
Tissue paper & ribbon - ebay
Gift bag - Hobbycraft
Creme eggs - Sainsbury's!
Other - Spellbinders circle & scallop circle dies, brown inkpad

No Flowers Allowed!

Good morning, I for one am very glad it's Saturday. It's been such a busy week and I can now relax as I'm off work for just over 2 weeks :-) It's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and our theme is 'No Flowers' hosted by the lovely Helene. Our wonderful sponsors are Craft Fairy and Digistamp Boutique

I initially broke into a cold sweat at the thought of not adding flowers as pretty much all my cards have flowers on them (apart from those for a male!). I then spied a fabulous cute cat image at Digistamp Boutique and had a flick through my paper stash and came up with this. I fussy cut the image to get rid of any white space...


Supplies:
Image - Duchess Cat by Digistamp Boutique coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Papers - RSVP by Basic Grey
Sentiment - Garden Vignettes by Barbara Anne Williams from Cuddly Buddly
Seam binding - Crafty Ribbons
Button & pearls - stash
