Happy Easter

Late Saturday Night Greetings!

I hope you're well and having a lovely Easter weekend. I've had another busy day...Lorna, Jim, Mum and Barry visited me today...we had an Easter inspired afternoon tea, including egg shaped egg sandwiches!


In the middle of eating all these goodies and walking Barry I also had time to make a cute little Easter card...this is for several different card challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challege - Easter
Allsorts - colour bingo - Green, ribbon, pink
DYSU - friendly critters
CES Challenge - swirls and pearls

And here is the card.....


As some of you might know, I love this little cutie...she never fails to make me smile! I've used some green backing paper, topped with a little pink gingham and a green gingham ribbon. I've coloured my image with my Promarkers and then backed with a little plain pink backing paper. I then added a stamped swirl and highlighted this with some mini pink pearls. I've never stamped directly onto a card before and it was a bit nerve wrecking....I'm also not sure that I like the effect, but at least I gave it a go!

Don't forget to pop by all the DT blogs mentioned above to see all the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week.

My Birthday candy is still running on my blog - its soooo easy to enter just leave me a comment on the post and you'll be entered into the draw on 16th April. There are stamps, dies, buttons, flowers and paper to be won!

Thanks for popping by today,
