It will soon be Easter...!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mummies in the UK. I have tonsillitis so not feeling too great but am being looked after. I think I am going to have to drag myself off the sofa to to the ironing later though :-( I managed work all week apart from Friday afternoon and am hoping that after a quiet weekend will be back with it to return tomorrow.

In order to try and get ahead I have made a couple of very simple Easter cards. I used another little cArt-Us stamp that I picked up when I nipped into Hobbycraft a few weeks ago. This one is called Chinese Flower and for just over £1 is an absolute bargain ;-) I have kept my colours light...



Supplies:
Image - Chinese Flower by cArt-Us from Hobbycraft
Papers - Spring Drop by First Edition
Sentiment - Girly Curly Sentiments by Pink Petticoat
Ribbon/lace - stash
Pearls - stash
Flowers - Crafty Emma's Store & stash
Tools - Deckle edge oval Nestie, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, brown chalk inkpad
