Getting ready for Easter

Good morning

Tim does seem to be flying when Easter is beginning to loom on the horizon.  A beautiful day here again, and I was almost tempted to put the hood down on the car, but did not have a jacket with me, but the arm weather had certainly tempted a lot of people to do so.

So, at  Anything Goes  this week the theme is Getting Ready for Easter, so lots of ways of protraying this with rabbits, eggs, and what about Easter Tea ...

I have used a Sarah Kay image and coloured with Promarkers and Copics.  My background papers are from First Edition Spring Drop, and although it does not show - the main paper is quite shimmery - so pretty.  I have used a variety of dies and punches for embellishments, and flowers, gems, silk ribbon and lace from stash.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Celebrate the Occasion - Welcome Spring
Craft Room Challenge - Bling Glitter and Sparkle
Deep Ocean Challenge - Butterflies
Going Grey with Scrap Creations - Flowers
LadyBug Crafts Ink - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Bingo (Gems, dies cuts, flowers)
Sassy Cheryl - Think Spring
Wild Orchid Challenge - Bingo (Gems, flowers, Ribbon and lace)

Please do pop across to the challenge blog  for lots of lovely inspiration, and don't forget that the Craft Den has lots of fabulous crafting goodies, which you know you just cannot do without.

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,
