Happy Easter everyone!

This is just a quick post so I can add this card to the Scrapbook Boutique blog Challenge for the month of March. Starting with the inspiration of these delicious looking cupcakes, I developed the card below.

 I think I'll give this card to my in-laws when we go visit them on Sunday.

The easter letters were stamped and embossed in pink and then I sponged over some more pink before fussy cutting them. I hand drew the grass and then cut it out with a craft knife; and the little chick (not cute but iconic) was stamped from an Alley Way Priceless Joy set.

I like how the letters appear to be sitting in the grass, and I love the daisy lace.

Anyway, the only big thing on this weekend is that my darling husband is going to take me to Ikea to buy a wall unit for my craft room. Hopefully then I'll be able to have more of my stuff sorted and stored properly and everything more user-friendly. At the moment I've got a mish-mash of shelves that waste a lot of room and that aren't wide enough for the papers etc to sit in properly. I'm too embarrassed to take before photos, but once it's done - maybe an after photo. Who knows?

I hope everyone has a great Easter break and that the weather doesn't stop you from doing what you plan.

Bye for now,

  2. Uber cute card Janelle. My husband was meant to take me to Ikea this week but we 'ran out' of time lol. Now we have visitors for Easter but not too many plans other than to eat and relax. Hope you have a wonderful Easter.
