Spots and Stripes

Hi all, call off the search party I'm
back. Been MIA for a few days, we've been  away
to a VW rally over the weekend.
What a brill time, we saw some lovely vans.
good weather, beer flowing, good time was had by

When we got home on Sunday my stamps had arrived that 
i ordered from the new Hanglar web site, i missed
out on the Attitude set when they where on eBay.
So i ordered them from the new site and they have only taken a few days to arrive.
so I'll bee playing with them next.

Anyway on to this weeks challenge at
Papertake Weekly

The theme this week is 


sponsored by the Ribbon Girl.
You can use either or both it's up to you.

Gone for another Easter card, using Tilda painting an egg.
I have sat her on a cluster of stamped eggs, 
coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended
with Sansodor and paper stumps.
The papers are from K&Co best of paper stack.
The butterflies are from card craft UK
Oliver's orchard stamp set.
Used nestie shapes and holographic paper.
Martha Stewart punches and
flowers from Magnolia and stash.

I also had a go at making one of the little
boxes from the latest Magnolia Ink mag,
there is a template inside.
I think the best way to make one of these 
is not to do what i did and
print it on plain card then back it with paper.
Print it onto pattered card,
it would be a lot less fiddly.
I have filled it up with my favourite mini
eggs and i have been very good and not had
any, i gave choccies up for lent and have only
one more week to go yippee!!
I did hope that i might loose a few pounds not 
eating chocolate but that hasn't happened (boo hoo)!!
so chocolate must be good for me....

I don't seem to craft as much with the kiddies on
school hols, so i don't know if i will be back again
before Easter if not hope you all have a good 
time, and the Easter bunny brings you all an egg
(Chocolate of course)
and have a nice long weekend break, the 
weathers supposed to be good at the moment
fingers crossed.

Don't forget to pop over to papertake and have a go
Thanks for stopping by
