Happy Easter Card from Michele
Good Morning Ladies,
Well the long weekend is here at last, it looks like the weather is going to play nice too, which makes the weekend so much more enjoyable, the Garden centres will be doing well this weekend!!
We popped to the Supermarket last night and all Barbecue foods were gone from the shelves, there was barely a sausage or burger in sight, we weren't shopping for any so it wasn't an issue, although the one thing I did want there was no sign of.....plain, ordinary Hot Cross Buns!! Aldi had Salted Caramel Hot cross Buns and believe it or not Rhubarb and Custard Hot cross buns!! but no plain ones, neither of those exotic flavours appeal to me in the slightest I'm afraid. Would you like them, or do you like me prefer the simple taste?.
Now onto today's card, this was some lovely Happy Mail that I received on Wednesday, a lovely Easter card from our Michele, it's beautifully made in lovely bright colours that remind me of those lovely Mini Eggs, it looks to me like Michele has done a bit of stamping too, the little eggs on the background and around the topper and the 'Happy Easter' look like Michele has stamped them (either that or it is computer wizardry)!😜
Michele has picked out the purple colour from the papers and used that as an accent colour, covering the join with a lovely gingham ribbon, the card is finished with silver 'Card Candi' in each corner.
Thank you so much Michele for such a lovely card. XXX
I have never really got into making cards for Easter, I don't think that it was ever a thing a few years ago, but he card shops do like to cover every possible event for a bit of extra cash, I must admit though they are cute cards.
Next Weeks Challenge Theme
I thought that as it was Easter/Spring a time of new life that it would be nice to have an Animal theme for this weeks Challenge, now when I say Animal, I will include just about any living creature …….
Dogs to Donkeys
Birds to Bears
Bees to Butterflies
Goats to Giraffes
Sheep to Shoals of Fish
Just about anything living thing that isn't human !!
Have fun with this challenge, I can't wait to see your cards !
We are off to my Mum's today, fingers crossed the traffic won't be too crazy, we thought that if we go today we have the rest of the weekend to relax, my sister did say that she was going to bring my Mum over to us this weekend but I guess it slipped her mind!😕
I hope that whatever you are doing you have a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all of you,
