Eggstra special Easter

We don't send many Easter cards but the other day I rustled up four, all the same:

I used:

- 4.75" x  4.75" white card stock with the bottom corners rounded

- stamped image (using Memento 'London Fog') is a Stampendous Calendar Chicks stamp (bought for a song in a bargain box) called 'Chick Eats', coloured with Pro Markers then die cut with a Nesties oval die

- SU 'Pumpkin Pie' card, die cut with a scalloped oval Nestie

- sentiment is from a Crafty Impressions set called 'Eggstra' - stamped using Memento 'London Fog'

- tiny flower punched from a snippet of lemon paper and topped with a little orange pearly gem

- green ribbon from Hobbycraft

Had a real little card production line going here - and am now in the throes of the next production line, my old school newsletters, sigh. 600+ of those little perishers plus two flyers in each envelope to label, stamp, package and post. Still, this is almost the end of my stint at doing them - one more issue to go and then it's someone else's problem turn :))

Have a great weekend!

  5. Hello there Di - sorry I haven't been by in a while but I have just checked out your last few cards and they are all gorgeous. Love the doggy in his Santa hat .. ahhh! Every time I see your snippets I tell myself to have a go -- then promptly forget (it's my continuous senior moment!!). However, I do love this easter card and it made me smile! Love the design and the image (even better when a bargain)!!
