Happy Easter with Nature Walk

Wishing everyone a very Happy Easter.  On Good Friday, I had my family over for a 'Family Funday Good Friday Garden Clean up Day'.  I have started doing it every Good Friday and it ends up being a lot of fun.  We acheived a lot and the place looks great.

Easter Cards are a little tricky as you need to send them out before the solemn day of Good Friday.  I sent this card out last week.  It is a very close copy of a lady that I saw on You Tube a year ago, so I don't know her name.  It uses a lovely stamp set called Nature Walk (for the eggs) and a retired stamp called Sanded and the Happy Easter is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.  To get the eggs different colours, I used the Stamp'n'Write markers- I coloured-in the stamp then breathed on it before stamping it.  It seems strange to see it, but breathing on it re-activates the ink!

Again, Happy Easter,

Party This Way

I have had the Party This Way stamp set for ages, but mainly only used the greeting of 'Happy Birthday'.   I got this set out the other day and had a play with it.  This set looks great in bright colours.  All I did was stamp the ballons and then drew a 'string' with a Stamp'n'Write Marker.  It took me about 5 mins to make and I think it looks really effective.
