where is spring

Well, we woke up to more snow this morning, but luckily despite it snowing heavily today at times it started to disappear by the afternoon. It is freezing again tonight, I just wish spring would come!
Here is one of the cards I made today.

It's another LOTV stamp I have had for ages. 
I used LOTV paper stack, Promarkers and Nesties.

Easter Treats

I have been making little Easter treat bags for family members. 
This one is for my Grandson Finn, I have used the Country Companions rabbit stamp, Promarkers and Nesties label die.

The other bags are for the adults they still like to receive a little treat. 
I have used an old rabbit stamp from S for Stamps (one of my first purchases). The papers are DCWV and nestie scallop ovals.

I am entering these treat bags into the following challenges:-


Another Easter card with this LOTV stamp, It's so cute. I also used the LOTV papers, I am just loving them. This is so fresh and spring like, unlike the weather here at the moment. It is so bitter cold. Good thing is I can shut myself in my craft room and play.

I also used Nesties and the sentiment is one of Annette's freebies.

Happy Easter

I have had a play. I was at the SECC craft fair last Saturday with my friend Vera. We had a fabulous day and spent lots of money on goodies!. When I was browsing through the LOTV stand I spotted a couple of stamps I had bought last year and had never inked up. 
I think I have used this one only once before. It is appropriate for Easter so here it is. I bought this beautiful Paper stack by Nit Wits. 

I have used LOTV stamp, Promarkers, Nit Wit papers, Stickles, Martha Stewart border punch and buttons from my stash.

I have used a Neighbourwood stamp, Promarkers, DCWV papers.
