Happy Easter! I hope you all have a safe & happy break as you celebrate the significance of this special weekend. We are spending Easter at home. There is so much to catch up on around the house … and we have had no time lately to do anything! So … it will be a lot of work … church … and perhaps we will find some time to have a treat or two!? 😉
One great thing about having a stamping day with friends … is that you get to play with goodies you may not have yourself. The BAD thing is … that you come home wanting all the things they have that you don’t!!!!!!! 😯 🙄 But … oh … what fun! The edgelits dies in the new SU! mini catty are fabulous … and one thing I did indulge in. Unfortunately I didn’t buy the matching stamp set … but … now I have played with Leonie’s … I definitely HAVE to have it!!! 😀 It just has the prettiest border to fit inside the scallop edgelit! I did 2 ‘ooops’ on this card … I grabbed Very Vanilla card instead of white … and then I picked up my Blushing Bride marker instead of Pretty in Pink … BUT … I actually was thrilled with the combo … because it looks a little ‘old world’ … with a lace border! I wanted to share Leonie’s version of this card … because she did a beautiful job of watercolouring her flowers. (Mine were coloured with markers.)
So … neither Leonie or I can take credit for this card. Leonie found it on a NING site somewhere … and it was originally created by Anne Westerneg. I have searched and searched so I can give a link back … but I couldn’t find a mention anywhere. I am happy to pass on the credit … if someone can let me know.
Well … I shouldn’t have looked … truly!!! Is it any wonder I have grey hairs … when this is what I can see looking out my window? I know I have told you before how much I hate tractors. Gav is driving and Sandy is spraying the ‘noxious weeds’ that we are required by law to deal with. The blackberry is thriving after all the recent rains … and we also have some parramatta grass coming through. My jobs for today … clean out the linen cupboard & the kitchen linen / cleaning stuff cupboard. I guess I had better get on with it!
