Some of you working girls will have, no doubt, worked out, like I did, that if you book the 3 days between Easter Monday and the Royal Wedding as holiday, you get 11 days away from work for the price of 3, bargain. I'd booked it as soon as the Wedding date was announced and have been gaily counting down to a nice break. "Only a few days left to go" I thought this morning - and then it suddenly dawned on me that it is Easter next week and I'd got NO cards made at all, eeeeeek!
Thankfully I don't make that many Easter cards, but there are some I just HAVE to make so I've been a crafty Squirrel today .......
This first card is for 3 challenges:
ALLSORTS CHALLENGE - Sketch
PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE - Easter Extravaganza
SECRET CRAFTER SATURDAY CHALLENGE - Stitching
PB image, painted in distress inks, papers are a mixture of Dovecraft, Papermania and a freebie (Craftwork Cards I think) and matting card is Papermania. If my circles look a bit squint it's because I had a bit of bother with my Martha Stewart circle cutter - that'll teach me to not move my cutting mat onto something more level. Round the edge of the blue circle and the stripe paper with my pokey tool and then round again with white gel pen on the blue and pink fibretip on the striped. Sentiment was a freebie. EK Success retro flower punch and Card Candy to finish off with a few pearls.
And while I was on a roll ......
Minimum of fuss with these two, I just needed quick and simple cards to get in the post. First one is LOTV with a PB sentiment and the second is Stampavie with LOTV corners. Papers are from scraps box but I think they are Dovecraft, Papermania and Wild Rose Studio.
Only one more to do now, and that's the one for Himself - hope he stays out of the way for a little while.......
