CCT Easter


This week at Cute Card Thursday we are getting ready to celebrate Easter.  Our sponsor is Di's Digi Stamps, please stop by the blog to read all about the prize and see what the rest of the team have made.

My card is one of my UFOs from last year .. .. admit it, we all have them!  I had the My Paper World from Viva Decor stamped main image already coloured in, and the card base sorted out too with old papers from my stash and a pretty Marianne Design square mat.  And that is as far as it went - looking a bit naked I thought.  So, I got out the same set of stamps and decided to stamp and fussy cut out the little chicks, the bow, extra primrose flowers and a couple of daffs.  I added touches of sparkle too and die cut 3 mini eggs from scraps of the paper I still had in my stash.  I little touch of pearl trim and that's it folks!  It's plainer than some of my recent makes, but I like the fresh feel for Spring.

Here's a close up of the little embellishment I created with the fussy cut 'extras'.

Thank you again for stopping by.  Looking after Mum and the house/garden are still taking up the majority of my time, but hopefully I will have some help in the garden very soon - giving the back lawn it's first cut nearly did me in and took two days .. .. not that it's much of a lawn after Izzy's waterings and the dreadful winter.  I will have to buy some grass seed for the muddy patches once my knight in shining armour gardening chap has done a little hard landscaping and given the smaller borders a solid edge in the hope that Izzy will realise where the grass stops and the dirt starts, and where he can run and where he can't!
