Happy Easter...

Just a very quick post to wish all my followers a very Happy Easter. We have a lovely sunny morning although very cold. Off to see Mum and Dad later this morning so looking forward to spending time with them.

Here is a card I made yesterday........another shadow box card.  If you check yesterdays card you wil see the link back to Kerry at A Load of Old Pickle where she made one and inspired me to have a go. Needless to say I am now hooked on the design.
Sorry about the rubbish photo :(

Papers and stamps are all Forever Friends.
Images coloured with Polychromo pencils on Kraft cardstock.

I would like to enter the following challenges 

Gem of a Challenge - Cute
One stop Craft Challenge - Easter

Right must go, have a lovely day everyone.

I will be back tomorrow with a new challenge at Ready Teddy Go......will there be another shadow box card?!  Quite possibly.

Many Ways to Say Thank You

Good evening to you all...... How is your Easter weekend so far?  We have had sunshine, clouds and snow!!!  Thankfully the snow didn't stay around and was just a few flakes.

I have fallen in love with diaroma/shadow box cards... I saw one on Kerry's - A Load of Old Pickle blog the other day and decided to have a go.  I have made 5 now!!!! Hope you don't get fed up of them.

So I have used the cute Newtons - Law bear image which is a free colouring page 

The image is coloured with Polychromo pencils
Patterned paper is actually glittered but doesn't show up on the photograph.
Base card from stash.

Hope you are having a good evening.   You will be seeing a lot of these over the next few weeks :)

Thanks for popping over tonight.

Take it Easy.......

Well the weather has done it again here in the UK and caused total chaos for parts of the country.  Lots of snow and bitterly cold temperatures for most of us feels like we should be about to have Christmas holidays not Easter!   Hope you are all managing to keep safe and warm.    
It's going to be a day indoors for me today.......Mike and I should have been going down to Surrey to catch up with my Bestest friend Robyn and her husband Peter but due to the weather we have postponed it......very sad face but we still have it to look forward to :)  It has snowed over night here and is still snowing now so I think we made the right decision.

I thought I would share this card that I made the other week using a cute image from Sassy Cheryl's called Have you Heard  The cute lil girl is called Sally so just had to have her!!

Coloured with Polychromo pencils
Paper from stash
Marianne Creatables Flower Button
Twine - Ladybug Crafts Ink.

Hope you have a good Sunday whatever you get up to.

I think some tidying in my Craft room and then maybe I can get some pictures on here to show you.

Thanks for visiting today.
