I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend. We had a mixed weekend, but it was all good.
It was mixed because we took the twins to Milton Keynes on Thursday night (in horrendous traffic) to stay with Nanny and Grandad for a few days. Then, to miss the traffic on Friday, we headed home that night instead of staying over as planned. The twins woke up when we arrived, so while I would usually be concerned about that, at least this time it meant I could be comfortable that they knew where they were and that we were going home (we told them before they fell asleep). So I was less worried about leaving them than if they’d fallen asleep on leaving home and slept through.
So I spent all of Friday and Saturday, and half of Sunday working on the house and decluttering. All good, but not highly relaxing! And I got next to no time to craft. I wrote a few Project Life cards, though, and took LOADS of photos for my album which is great. I cannot wait for the new Stampin’ Up! Project Life line, to see what exciting tools and resources they have for us!
So todays share is the card we sent to some select friends and family – they went down a treat!
The card blanks were ones we bought to make our Save The Date cards for our wedding and are photo-cards, which gave me the idea. I got the prints done at Boots on Monday last week, and the cute flowers were punched out with the Petite Petals punch in the Spring/ Summer catalogue. I used some papers I got free with a magazine – I think these ones were Me2You, but any pretty paper would work, as long as it is plain or only has a small pattern. I stuck them down with a blob of Tombow – that glue is great!
Inside I stuck a sentiment from the new Easter set (the name of which escapes me just now!), which I borrowed the stamp from a fellow demonstrator a few weeks ago:
They were punched out with the 2″ x 1-3/8″ Oval Extra-Large and tucked away for safekeeping – and were perfect for this project! So, so cute, I love this image.
Here’s the cards I made, all together:
I hope they have given you a little inspiration – or at least a view on my cute bunnies 😉
