Easter is almost here

Hi! everyone,

Tuesday afternoon, and I have my muscles back in place, all limbered up, did a good mornings work, and now settled down in front of my computer and craft table all in one....AND..Yes..I really did handstands...
Did not say it was pretty...but I did do them....and should see me thats

Okay...enough chatter..lets see some more cards.

I love this...A real boy card for Easter. Image is Kenny K 'Victory Kid. The Easter eggs are made with the smallest scallop oval nestie. You know that one that you looked at and said  'what on earth would I use that size for' well... I dont have an oval punch. or an oval nestie [ plain ] so I had a go with this wee die...and bingo..cute eggs...a sprinkle of glitter here and there...Easter eggs.
Big chip board 'E' from the $1 shop...bought packets and packets of them for scrapbooking but never use them all. still got heaps...and small wooden alphabets, just gave them some ink.
This was going in a challenge  but I was too late.

Now for the girls...

I love this card too.So much fun and flowed together.
Used the basket stamp again. but this time it is filled with the egg thing going and cut out far too many...just had to use them. I must get some glue that does not stick so quick, would have liked the eggs a bit tidier...but this stuff sticks.
The border on the bottom from $1 shop..cut in half..ribbons scraps across the top right corner, couple of dies for the middle. papers from stash. Computer sentiment..
This is going in a challenge at craft us crazy an Easter/spring theme.

Hope you like these..Thank you for all the comments last time..blew me away.The boys loved to see themselves on the blog..they think its better than TV...[8 & 6yrs,]

Hi Chrissy, Oh I just love the little eggs on the boys card and the girls card is just adorable. Great work on both. You are so funny my BFF has like 15 Grandbabies and she would do cartwheels or handstands with them as well. lol...I am only 44 and I can honestly say that even when I was in my teens I don't think I could ever do a handstand,even an ugly one. lol... Now if the ones that I can still do in our pool count well, I'm all over that. Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa
