Good morning dear friends. I’m back in the land of the living at long last!! I am really sorry for my long absence but I haven’t been feeling very good over the last 2 weeks or so – nothing serious, just a virus I think, but I felt really rough. In fact I didn’t actually craft at all during that time so I must have been ill. I even bought a card for my in-laws anniversary – awful I know!! Anyway hopefully things will slowly get back to “normal” now, although I think my mojo has taken the break badly and is refusing to come back to normal duties lol!
Enough of my waffling! I’m here to share my card for this week’s charisma cardz challenge and this week the lovely Gemma has set the theme and she has chosen “Easter” which I’m sure will prove very popular! Here is my card:
I have used a super cute image from DigiStamp Boutique called “Easter Dan” and coloured him with promarkers. At the moment this image is on offer so why not pop over to the shop and grab him at a very special price of just £1.00 (but only until end of March) – he will come in so useful for all your Easter creations. The lovely papers are my mind’s eye from the ‘dwell’ paper pad and the kraft card is from dies to die for. I created my little Easter egg embellishments by die-cutting the smallest oval nestie and drawing some lines with a Letraset fine liner pen and then colouring with promarkers – quite effective I think!
We have two sponsors this week, firstly we have DigiStamp Boutique and Sally-Ann is offering one lucky winner 6 digi images of their choice – and as you can see her images are so adorable you will be spoilt for choice!
Our second sponsor is Joanna Sheen and she is offering one lucky winner a £10.00 gift voucher to spend in her online store. She has lots of gorgeous crafty goodies plus free shipping on all orders!
The rest of the design team have made gorgeous creations as always so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
