Cute Card Thursday + Papertake Weekly + Lili Of The Valley

Happy Easter everyone, although I suppose, techincally I am two days early as we are still in Lent! 

Two cards for you today, the first is for CUTE CARD THURSDAY who have the theme of no text.  For this one, I wanted an image that conveyed the message ..... and I've ended up with a wedding card of all things!

LOTV stamp, painted with distress inks, lilac papers are from a very old collection, border punch is Modern Garland by Martha Stewart, the cotton effect paper is from stash.  Flowers were card coloured with a Frost Blue Copic pen to try and match the horseshoe.

And my second card is for the LILI OF THE VALLEY Easter Challenge and the PAPERTAKE WEEKLY Spots n Stripes challenge.  Made this one for the Toadster......

An easy easel card (using two pre-scored cards trimmed to right size), LOTV bunny stamp, Crafts Too papers, sticky ribbon, Hero Arts sentiment and the bow from LOTV which I 3d'd but it doesn't show too well in photo.  Brads are Papermania.

Glorious sunshine today, temperature supposed to reach 23C ...... and I'm sneezing.  The sore throat is back, I'm full of snot (for want of a better word) and feel a bit pants.  Just what the doctor ordered for the first day of my holiday!

Hope you all have a super long weekend, catch you soon.

Hugs, Sxx
