April Calendar

Happy Easter!  We had a beautiful day today of sunshine with lots of showers, and a gorgeous dinner of roast lamb and lemon cheesecake a la Jamie Oliver .... delish even if I do say so myself!  ;)

And the clocks changed last night, so we're into the brighter evenings at last. Hurray!!!
So it's almost April, and I've impressed myself with being early with all my calendar pages for Mum this year (yes I know that's only 4 months LOL)
This one uses an older stamp from High Hopes - coloured with watercolour pencils; clear gloss added to his beak, and glitter to the band on the umbrella.  I watercoloured my BG with a couple of different blues and some purple, and then used the splatter brush from Tim Holtz to add darker blue splashes.  Lawn Fawn cloud dies.  I also added some tiny bling to the spokes of the umbrella.

Your dinner sounds fabulous! We cooked steak, shrimp and ham on the grill. Everyone got to have their favorite and loved it.
