Happy Easter

It's 2 weeks since I last sat down and made a card,the weather here in the north-east of Scotland has been perfect for working in the garden and I have spent 4-5 hours working in it every day.When we built the house the plot was just under an acre in size and the garden was a never ending chore. Now that I have retired I feel that it can be laid out nicely, but since no-one else is interested it's up to me.

This is my first Easter card and I really enjoyed making it.

March Christmas Crafting Challenge

The challenge for March has been sponsored by Robyn's Fetish where you can find digital stamps to suit every occassion. Why not use an image from the site for your card. The DT challenge was to use a non Christmas Image to create their Christmas Card.My photo doesn't show it but I made a shallow box to put some chocolate coins in.
