My Lovely Friends,

Happy Easter,

No I’ve not made an Easter Card lol, just wishing you all a Happy Easter, my Hubbies working all over Easter so it’s craft time for me yipee, the weather has also played nice this morning and has dried my washing but looks like it might rain now, nothing new there then,

I’m entering this into Crafting Lifes Pieces Challenge~ Sketch, and Magnolia Stamp Lovers~ The colour Purple,

For my card I have used a fab sketch over on CLP, I’ve tweaked it a bit as I usually do lol, the images are both Magnolia sent to me as a RAK from my lovely friend Mandy, thanks so much hun, they are coloured in Copics and her shoes have glossy accents on them, makes them look like patent leather not that you can see it off my photo’s ( back to the practising again ) lol,


Papers are K &Company Wedding Collection, star Dust Stickles, Copics, Coredinations Card, Martha Stewart Punch, Scissors for distressing edges of card, Distress ink for edge of labels Nestie, Ribbon and sentiment  from stash, foam pads for height,

I cut out the inner fence to give the fence depth then layered the whole image on to a labels Die Nestie, edged it in distress ink, Tilda is raised in the same way with double layers  on her legs for the height allowance,


You can just hopefully see the sparkle in her flowers in her basket,

Hope you all have a lovely Easter and have fun, thanks for looking, hugs Liz xx
