It's Easter,

or nearly anyway!

Hello there blogworld,

So here we are again, another Monday morning and a good weekend was had by all, I hope?  Ours was hit and miss - SHMbO has a cold and slept for a lot of Saturday but then perked up enough to go to her two best friends joint birthday party.

Anyway, you're not here to hear my waffle are you - you're here to see the card and for me to tell you all about the new challenge over at The Cutie Pies and this fortnight it's 'Easter' - so all your cutest projects for Easter please.

We are sponsored this time by the super cuteness that is:

The DT were very kindly allowed to pick an image to use and this is my card with the image I picked.

If, however, you go follow the link to find it, you may not quite recognise it!  I decided to try and use an Easter card this year (one I made last year is still sitting in the box!) so I slightly changed a part of the image to make it more relevant - you'll have to follow the link if you want to know what I did.  But I bet you can probably guess - the card is for SHMbO, and most of you know what she looks like!

So front shot:

The close up:

 The arty farty:

I used:

Digi stamp:
coloured with my Promarkers


Freebie from years ago: Pretty Please - Spring Papers

Anything else?
Ribbon from my stuff
HobbyHouse - pearls
Wild Orchid Crafts - flowers and leaves

There we go my little offering for this challenge - why not pop on over to the challenge blog and see the super cuteness that my teamies have made?

See you again soon,

A challenge, or two:

I love Promarkers: #159 - Ribbons and Bows

Stampin for the Weekend: Child's Play (both for a child and an image of a child - bingo!!)
