Are you ready for Easter - Anything Goes are getting there .....

Hi everyone,

It's been glorious here in Somerset today, fab sunshine and great coffee with my girlie friends ....  and of course some fab craft time.

Anyway the girlies over at Anything Goes Challenge Blog (my fab DT teamies) are getting ready for Easter.  I have been saving these fab Forever Friends Images for just this occasion.

I have distressed my card with TH distress inks and also distressed the die cut behind the image.  The sentiment was distressed as well.  The papers are from Papermania - these were completely distress with two different TH inks.  Had a brilliant time doing this card - love getting my hands dirty with a bit of Tim!!

Hope you are all ok and have enjoyed looking.

See you all next time......

Cuties are getting ready for easter ....

HI everyone.

Well is seems ages since I last blogged.  As some of you know I have recently moved and the last fornight has been spent trying to make my new house look less like a storage unit.  Everyone has been really helpful and I now finally have pictures up, crockery in cupboards and far more importantly craft stuff on my shelves.

It was also my MIL's 60th ..... so we had a party and all the girlies had new frocks.  Here are some pics of our fab night out

 My wonderful daughter and her estranged Dad
  me, my Mil and my estranged Hubby

The fantastic Cornwall women, left to right, my two sils, me and then my wonderful Mil.  Who certainly doesn't look a day over 50, let alone 60.

We had a great evening, there were lots of laughs and fun and most of all my MIL really enjoyed her party.


Well having got Mother's day over and done with, and to all of you MUMS out there may I wish you a happy mothers day.... you are all unsung heros ....

It's now time for EASTER .......... so at the Cutie Pies this fortnight we are getting ready for it ... our challenge is THINK PINK WITH RABBITS ........  pink and rabbits...... fab combination - such a great opportunity to let your cuteness shine through and be as yummy as you like.

Here's my card to inspire you all

I have layered lots of fab pink papers onto my card, my papers are from Papermania and First Edition and Kanban, my gorgeous heart doily is from my friend Sandimac (over on Docrafts).  I have layered up papers punched with a Martha Stewart Deep Edge punch and then added a Tulip Sentiment.  The lace was a fab prize from my friend Teresa (Craftingallday on Docrafts).  The ribbon is from my stash and the buttons are three bits of card candi topped with gems.  The gorgeous bunny  and egg basket is of course a Forever Friends decoupage, from last year's Easter Stash.

Hope you like it and it inspires you to make a fab pink bunny card of your own,  and if you need anymore inspiration go check out all the other DT inspiration cards over on the Cutie Pie Challenge blog.  

Hugs as always
