Happy Easter

A very happy Easter to you all!  We've had the most glorious sunny spring day, and I'm delighted that the clocks moved forward today too! You definitely feel more like getting up and doing stuff when it's brighter outside!

My Easter cards were all a variation of this one, not a stamp or ounce of colouring in sight!  My cute bunny die was a purchase from Creative Depot (I think) a while back.  These were all cut with shiny silver card and then I added loads of chunky glitter to their sweet bunny tails.  The background embossing folder is from an old Simon Says Stamp kit.

I haven't shared a photo of Molly lately, so here's a silly one of her sitting on the stairs.  She perches her butt on one step and then her feet are on the one below.  Doesn't look one bit comfortable!  Daftie.

Mother's Day card

Hi all, popping in with my Mother's Day card which I almost forgot to share.  I've used my lovely new bunny alphas from Lili of the Valley, aren't they the cutest! I added gloss and lots of glitter to the letters so it was really sparkly in real life.  I did have a green bank behind the bunnies but didn't stencil it dark enough and they kinda look like they're floating there 🤣

We Love Stamping March - feminine 
Daisy Chain #83 - animals

And sorry I've been on the missing list ... I've been taking colouring classes from Kit & Clowder and they have taken up my spare time.  One of the few New Year resolutions I've actually followed up on!  Here's a couple of my recent bits of homework...

Cards for John, David and Gertie

 Hi all! A few spring Thank You cards to share this evening.  These were for a couple of volunteers in work just to mark their long service.  They've always volunteered in the same team together and I wanted to make them both the same but different, so out came my Lili of the Valley daffodil stamps.  

Allsorts #770 - Spring
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - anything goes 
 Little Red Wagon #745 - stencil power - I've used my cloud stencil on both but it's not a great photo     

And this one is for a lady who has just had an operation on her foot, so this oldie from Helz Cuppleditch was just right for the job.
