Hello Everyone...Happy Easter to you all..

A lovely long is such a great day to be inside crafting...

Still have to work 3 times a day over the long weekend..but that's dears are part of my life and it is only for 1/2 hour each time for each, still plenty of me time.

Here today to share my DT card using a gorgeous cute image from Stampfairy 

Garden Goblins [image 3]  from the Halloweenfall collection.

He is such fun to colour and using my Faber Castell colouring pencils that is just what I did.

I paper pieced the mushrooms and added pearls this time.....and paper pieced the small mushrooms along the bottom..[cheery Lyn die - from Annie]...

Papers are Rosies Studio called 'My Favourite recipe' and added Memory box Bamboo shoots for the foliage.

One more side view to see the dimension..

Okay...this is a scheduled one as I'm off to work soon and coming home to pork chops..yum!!!well,I have to cook them when I get home but still yum!!..

Been taking it easy with the chocolate bunnies and eggs as I got a good dose of heartburn the other think I have learned my lesson...will cut down.[a bit] and buy more baking

Thanks so much for stopping by...have an awesome weekend..see you soon.

Absolutely gorgeous, Chrissy! I love everything about it...your design, your colouring, your mushrooms. I also love how you have left the bamboo die-cuts 'free standing'.
