sweet one

Firstly, I must apologise for being awol on visiting your blogs this past month, I have just had a lot on and haven't had any time to surf the net. I will be catching up during the coming week. Thank you for those that have forgiven me and taken the time to comment, it is very much appreciated.

Ooh, almost forgot, today is Easter Day, so Happy Easter to all. I guess the reason why I forgot that it was Easter, is because I've already eaten my egg. I mean, come on, if someone gave you an Easter egg on Thursday evening, would it still be knocking around now? NO! Hmmmm, I did hint last night that I had eaten my egg and so wouldn't have anything chocolatey to eat come the actual day and being a choc-a-holic and it being Easter day, you'd expect to have some chocolate. I've typed up this post in advance, so will wait with eager anticipation!!

On to today's card which is my DT post for Crafts 4 Eternity. Another fabulous recipe, which goes as follows:

The sketch (which is fab, fab, fab).

Use an Easter image or theme.

Include buttons.

I've just had a quick (? make that an hour or so and it is already gone 2 in the morning) rummage around the challenges and am entering this into:

'Anything goes': Papertake Weekly and Crafty Creations.

This card is quite sparkly and if you click on the photos, it may show up in the close ups.

Papers: Imaginisce ~ For Peep's Sake.

I used a Martha Stewart crown border punch. Had it for an age but never yet used.

Hopefully you can see the glitter better in this picture. This is Sarah Kay ~ How sweet you are. I coloured her with copics and added some stickles.

Lots of machine stitching going on.

For my buttons, I added some tiny flower rub-ons to them before stitching them on. So cute!

Thank you for visiting.


having a {me} day ... at last!!!!
