Happy Easter

Easter has always been my favourite season, but this year we have been so busy, and the weather has been so cold, it has sort of sneaked up on me and hasn't been the bright, calm, restful period I've come to associate with it!

Never mind. I enjoyed making some cards. It was nice and relaxing.

I'm afraid most of them will be late, so more Eastertide cards than Easter cards!
Here is a selection of what I managed....

(Any guesses for who this peachy feline one went to?!)


Different!

I sent this one to my brother- I thought my young nephews would like the googly-eyed sheep.

This is the stamp I used most, "Emma".....
I really enjoyed colouring her in...

Do you like my cheeky Felix mug?

Lots of punched out flowers on some of them...
There seems to be something of a snobbery about using peel-off outline stickers on cards, but I think they are quite handy sometimes, like with these branches and birds...
....or these flowers, which I've added little gems to...

Simpler cards are a nice change, too, though...
I went to town on Luvbug's though,
using some sparkly paper that I made last summer......and two little "Housemouse" stamps...cute!

Hope you enjoyed the browse!

Now I have to get back to the packing. There's no way we'll be done in time!

Happy Easter,

Beautiful cards as always. The making must be therapeutic, so I'm glad.

Dearest Helena! Your Peachy card arrived here today to cheer us to no end! What a sweet layout on the pretty card. We can't stop looking at it and only wonder what we did to deserve to have it come to us. Mommy loved the cross sticker out of filigree on the cover..we love Easter like you do. You always add magic to our ordinary days and our special ones.
Thank you so much for your kindness...the stamps on the envelope are such an added treasure. Long live the pretty Queen...
Hugs to you and your dear Mum and Dilly and Bob T. Bear and Luv Bug:)
