Hope everyone is enjoying their Easter Break and haven't OD'ed on chocolate (like myself)...!:-( Have managed to get into my crafty space in the loft and use some of my new stash purchased at the NEC last week.

I used my new nesties, Craftwork cards sentiment, and Magnolia stamp on this one. The Martha Stewart border punch is fairly new too but purchased a few weeks ago somewhere else. I stamped her onto some new card I got from the Craftwork cards stand which was a dream to use my Copics on. You can only just about see in the picture but I stamped and heat embossed in Hologram powder some flowers on the backing paper. Now one of the trends of the moment is putting paper flowers on your cards.........well none of the local florist need worry ....I wont be setting up my own florist shop anytime soon......fiddle,faff, fiddle,faff......give up and just put one on each corner....bloomin heck ... these were meant to be little sprays of flowers with a bit of net behind...ha ha it wasn't happening on my card. So here is a close up of the one flower I used on the corner ( god knows why.)
Spent Saturday afternoon painting an old bucket with stencils and some twigs "off white"
below is the result.

I made it to hang Phoebes coloured in wooden shapes on and to put on the table for the little Easter party we had yesterday for the family.

This is the Easter cake that my eldest daughter decorated.....yum!

My proudest moment over the holiday was seeing my youngest daughter Phoebe learning to ride her  bike without stabilisers.......Go Phoebe.....well done.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of the Easter Break.
