Happy Easter!

Good morning everyone and a Happy Easter to all of you!

I am sitting here in my PJ's having a lazy morning, and enjoying a bit of blog catch up time, after a frenzied couple of days finishing Easter cards and also a knitted blanket for my Great Nephew who came in to the world of April 6th. Mother, father (my nephew!) and baby are all doing well and came out of hospital yesterday, so I am hoping that we will shortly be able to visit the new young family!

I will show his special card another day, but in the meantime.....back to Easter!

Here is a card that I made for my sister.......



The image is from Prairie Fairie, and I have used my favourite technique of the moment - multiple prints, coloured with promarkers and decoupaged.  The lovely papers are from thre NitWits Eggstra special range. I was a bit initmidated by this image when I first pronted it, but it turned out to be a lot easier to colour than I thought, so I was really pleased with the final result!

I am going to enter this in to a few challenges:
Secret Crafter - Easter
Sweet Stamping - Die Cuts and Doodles
Anything Goes - Anything Goes
My Mums Craft Shop - Easter / Animals
Prairie Fairy - Anything Goes
Catch The Bug - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by everyone and hope you all have a lovely day.
