Oh....I'm Back..........again!

Hi all, it’s me again…….did you think I had fallen off the face of the earth?
Well I won’t bore you all by prattling on about my flood again but that’s the reason there’s not been much crafting going on and you haven’t seen be around again this week.

I eventually got my craft bits out yesterday though and made a few Easter cards which was great because Jo’s theme for the Daring Cardmakers challenge this week is to use Bunnies and Chicks on our cards.

The first five cards are all made using a selection of really pretty Doodlebug papers, coordinating shaped brads, cardstock stickers, fancy frills stickers and a few added extras from my ever growing stash.

Added Extras: - Do Crafts, textured square cards, Craft Creations White card stock, Ribbon.
Tools: - Round Scalloped & Classic Nestabilities, Woodware Corner Rounder, and Printer (for greeting)
Inks: - Martha Stewart Pigment Ink Stack

Added Extras: - Craft Creations card blank, Ribbon, K & Co Stripy Brads
Tools: - Martha Stewart Cosmos Paper Punch, Printer (for greeting)
Inks: - Martha Stewart Pigment Ink Stack

Added Extras: - Craft Creations card blank, Ribbon, Silk and Paper Flowers, Tiny Gems (Anita’s)
Tools: - Paper Pricker (for faux stitching) Printer (for greeting)
Inks: - Ranger Distress Ink

Added Extras: - Craft Creations card blank, Sticky Ribbon,
Tools: - Printer (for greeting)
Inks: - Martha Stewart Pigment Ink Stack

Added Extras: - Do Crafts textured square card, Stickles Glitter Glue
Tools: - Clear Stamps (Candyfloss Bunny) Prisma Color Pencils,
Inks: - Martha Stewart Pigment Ink Stack

My last two cards were stamped using various pegs from two sets of Tapestry Stamps.

This one fits in with the Tanda Teaser last week which was called Pushing Daises. Unfortunately my daises weren’t stamped but the backing to the cross and the edging around the large oval was so I hope that’s ok and it will pass muster.
Added Extras: - Craft Creations Hammer card blank, Stickles Glitter Glue
Tools: - Xcuts Large & Small Flower paper punch. Tapestry Stamps (Pottery Garden & Porcelain Bouquet) Printer (for greeting)
Inks: - Decorating Chalks, Versa Magic & Martha Stewart Pigment Ink Stack

And for this last one I decided to have a little play with one of the Kabuka Moulds from my TENsecond Studio prize and used it to emboss in my Cuttlebug…..I think it worked really well!
Added Extras: - Craft Creations Hammer card blank, Stickles Glitter Glue
Tools: - Cuttlebug, Kabuka Mould, Tapestry Stamps (Pottery Garden & Porcelain Bouquet) Printer (for greeting)

And there you have it, a little collection of Easter Cards……I hope it was worth waiting for!

I’m not sure when I will be back.
The appointment for my knee op was originally going to be on Good Friday but I had a letter this morning to say that they have brought it forward to the 7th April now. So now next week will be a busy one with the pre op stuff, then the dentist and best of all Lythan will be coming to play on Monday.

See you all soon……..I hope!

Love your cards, Sue!! They cover all the Easter themes from cute to spiritual.

Sorry to read about all your travails over the past few weeks. We just cut a hole in a damp patch in playroom ceiling here with fear and trepidation, but luckily, it looks like it's just a small leak in a joint directly above the hole. Phew!

Best of luck with the knee!

Good Gracious Sue - when you get started on the crafting again, you really get stuck in!

Lovely to see that the flood hasn't kept you away from your cardmaking for long. Love all your cards, and those pretty pastel papers are lovely
