Happy Easter ......

Happy Easter weekend ........

And a special hello from our little Easter bunny .......

Yes we have wild bunnies in the garden ....... two big ones,

and two little baby ones ...... that I think live under the garden shed!

I just hope the gardener didn't scare them off when he came to cut the lawn the other day!

I hope you're enjoying your Easter weekend.  We're having a nice family Sunday lunch tomorrow .... would you believe it's the first one since we moved into the new house.  We popped into town this morning and did the shopping, stocked up on the wine and ooops! somehow these two found their way home with me too .....

The brand new Fynoderee Spring edition ....... looking forward to trying this one, the Winter one was lovely.  And another new one  ..... the Spring edition of the Rock Rose.  It's going to be a good weekend!
No chocolate for me though ..... my Easter egg was a shiny new laptop ......

No calories!

Anyway ..... before I go and put on my domestic goddess tiara (I'm going to bake a chocolate cake for tomorrow)  here's a little something crafty for you ......

It's been a busy week in the craft room, getting ready for April's blog challenges that all get underway next week.  I did find time to play though, in between all the tidying up. 
I came across this pretty die cut piece and thought it was too nice to put away in the bit box.  Instead I turned it into a really pretty birthday card that was so quick and easy to make.

I've been playing around with a set of the Tim Holtz Mixed Media dies .... I think it's set #5 but don't hold me to that!
I made two cards for Darnell's Twofer Challenge with one of the dies, which you can see here if you missed them.  And speaking of the Twofer challenge, I got a nice surprise this morning when I found out that my cards are one of this month's Winners!  Thanks Darnell, I'm so proud to be part of such a fabulous showcase.

This leftover piece was one I decided not to use for the challenge but isn't it pretty ..... I love all the detail.

I simply die cut it from a piece of white cardstock and then laid it over the top of a piece of card I found in my bit box, coloured using Brushos.

A simple sentiment and a few sparkly sequins .... done!

There's also a matching stencil which I used on the inside .....

Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides matched the colours on the front perfectly

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of the Easter weekend.
Time to get that cake in the oven I think.

Cheerio until next time ......

  4. Such a pretty card Linda, love the die cut. Love your resident bunnies too especially the cute babies, we keep getting one in our garden from the fields behind but have to chase him out and keep blocking the holes he digs to get in as I'm worried our little Jack Russell will have it for breakfast one day !
