Easter is on it's way~

Hiya Girls~

I am posting this whilst watching "The Godfather"- Hubby couldn't believe I was watching it on TV, especially when I have the full box set!! But thats me, and it is one of my top 20 films.

I have been chilling out today. I had a nice time at the Aquarium, but working all day takes it's toll, I am just not used to it! LOL
The weather was so nice at Lakeside and I love to watch the Windermere Steamer Boats going up the Lake, It's magical, a beautiful sight.
Not that busy inside where I was, but when It's lovely weather I am not as busy as when It's raining outside. At the Aquarium they have two new Otters (that's 4 altogether) and it was lovely to see them all swimming around and foraging for meal worms, So a good weekend for me and this weather is even better.

This afternoon after doing my jobs I have had a little play. I wanted to do a spring/Easter card using a Tilda stamp, but when I looked I had nothing that even slightly resembled a Spring/Easter image!!
Oh what to do......

In my craft room I have a box with stamped images in, most of them have been stamped for me by friends..In there I found this "old" Tilda, but I do like her, it's a bit different from some of the ones you can get now. I think with her having a bunch of flowers in her hand she should pass as a image for Spring/Easter, hope you agree!!

Image is Magnolia, Papers are Dovecraft Tea Party (I think) and the green word paper is Craftwork Cards. I have also used one of my brand new Nesties, I love this shape. The Swirls are from a Marianne die and pearls are Hobbyhouse. I have coloured the image in Pro-Markers, I have added a bit of Stardust Stickles to the flowers and wings.

Entering this card into:

Craft Your Days Away--Easter

Gorgeous card Debbie, love the nestie shape. The image is so pretty too. sounds like you had a fab weekend. We went to West Midlands Safari park today it was fab, will post some pics later ~ Mac was overjoyed as she got picked to help the sealions, then the camels poked their head in the truck window ~ it was fantastic.

Lovely card Debbie. Such a cute image and your colouring is perfect again! I adore that Nestie shape too - must get mine out now that I can lift 'light' weights!!
