Hello out there - hope you have all had a fabulous week of creativity.
Now I hope that the Easter Bunny brings you lots of delicious chocolate to eat,

course they are edible LOL!

Now, lets see what the DT have for you.

Scatty Jan - Ohhhh I really loved making my little bird house this week. The die that I used is the Jolly Bumblebees memory box havent used it for far to long - I glittered up his wings using star dust stickles.I cut the little house on my portrait . The roof  was cut from paper from Work and Play 1 collection (as was the branch) - The nuts and ladybird were from Cherryblossom Lane collection. The flag banner is from Picknix cd and the main paper , birds, and flowers from the Eden collection. It's so much fun working with all the collections , there are plenty on each but it's also great that they mix and match. The little tiny leaves ontop of the house are a punch- lots more piccy's on my blog xx


Asha - I made a card for a friend who is expecting a baby girl. Here's a sweet and simple card made with papers from my all time favourite indispensable CD for patterned papers - Sugar Birdies. The pre-coloured digi and sentiment are from the Fredericka Mini Collection. I'm using heart dies in various sizes to cut and frame as well as a few sequins and sheer ribbon for a soft and delicate finish.


Penny - I was delighted when I saw the theme of Use a die for the challenge and immediately ran off to play with my Little B and Spellbinders dies to create.  I used the wonderful Eden collection papers and embellishments.   I love how easy it is to coordinate everything, I think I was smiling the whole time I created this.


Karon - My hubby's nephew is getting married later this year, so I decided to get my Wedding card made and done.  I used several sizes of oval dies behind the main image and on the inside.  I have used the wonderful Bride and Groom rabbits off of the wonderful Cherryblossom Lane Collection, they are also available as a single digi download.  All the elements are from this fabulous CD.


Lou - I have used one of the card templates from Work and Play 8, Music; adore their shape with the music notes on the side. Papers, embellies, sentiments and flowers are also from the same CD/download. Dies were a Sizzlet set to create some frames and a Sizzix butterfly die.



Cheremane - I have used the stunning Eden Cd to create my card and used Fairy Wings Digi I adore everything about this collection the colours are very feminine teamed with stunning images it really is a must for all your girly creations. I teamed this up with Spellbinders and Memory box die's to suit the theme.


Agnieszka - hello Crafters :) Today I want to share with you my card with image from the
Work & Play 10 CD Collection - Country Life. I used pre-coloured image Gamekeeper :) I also printed papers from CD - they are so pretty and softy colours. I created card for a man, added some white and craft carton, few flowers and dies (Cheery  Lynn Designs - lace and leaves and Crafty Ann - honey comb lattice, sentence - "for you".


AnnaFor the Use a Die Challenge, I decided to make a last Easter card for this year, in my favorite color - violet. It has flowers, lace and a cardboard bunny . Card made from  Winston collection.
