Hope you had a lovely Easter...

Hiya all...Hope you had a lovely Easter and found some time to craft and enjoy a chocolate egg,
we have so many eggs here between us I feel a stone heavier just looking at them lol...
Apart from a lovely Easter get together  with my Mum and Dad and sister & family on Sunday afternoon, we didn't get up to much, our little girl has had a cold and a high temperature since last Thursday, bless her.

I made a Easter card for our little girl using the freebies from Simply Cards & Papercrafts  issue 96, it came with Nitwit Collections papers & die cuts, so adorable and gorgeous....now I normally end up passing most of my freebies from mags straight over to my daughter to use, but not these I just love Nitwit papers.
I also used one of my favourite Martha Stewart punches called Doily Lace and some pretty flowers & pearls from my stash.....She loves it.

Easter Lillie with tulips......


Hi everyone!...Happy Easter to you all, hope you have some lovely things planned to do and get lot's of yummy chocolate eggs, can't believe it's April already, where does the time go.

I left my Easter card making very late this year and seemed to have used the same image for most of them, have posted 3 together, so as not to bore you too much lol...





The image is so adorable and is a digi from Fairy Dust Crafts, which I was very lucky to win and have coloured with my usual promarkers  & flexmarkers.All the papers are from a paper pack called floral by Wild Rose Studio, so pretty, have had these papers for a while now and feeling very pleased with myself  for actually nearly finishing something up lol..The flowers were made using my favourite Nellie Snellen floral punches, oh I do love these and are well worth the money.The gorgeous swirl die on the orange one is a Whimsy Stamps die called Vines, am loving this too. The gorgeous Border on the last one is a Martha Stewart punch called Swirling Lace.

For those of you with some time off, happy crafting.

Testing out the new interface...

Just testing out the new interface, a bit concerned about word verification been into settings and changed it to no and saved setting, but when I turn of computer and go back to look it then says yes again, oh I hate it...could you let me know what happens when you leave a comment..Thanks.

As I am writing this post there seems no where to scroll post up and down, is it like that for you ?
oh I do hate having to learn it all over again.

Here goes, can I upload a card...


Yay!.......

That's odd now there is a blue bar just appeared for me to scroll up and down.

For this card I used part of a image from Sugar Nellie called Picking Apples, one of my all time favourite stamps and some gorgeous Basic Grey papers from the bittersweet paper pad and a Martha Stewart Border punch.

Right going to now schedule this for a little later and see if it works.


EDITED...YAY! IT WORKED, BUT FONT LOOKS ALL WOBBLY NOW,WILL HAVE TO LOOK AT THAT NEXT.
I HAVE TRIED ALL THE FONT OPTIONS AND ALL LOOK A LITTLE WOBBLY VERY STRANGE HAVE ALWAYS USED THE ITALIC BUTTON INBETWEEN BOLD AND UNDERLINED, OUT OF INTEREST WHICH FONT DO YOU ALL USE?
Do let me know if word verification comes on..many thanks.
