Spring Like Lilybelle

Spring Lillybelle (7)

Afternoon all! It’s time for another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and I’m joining in as a Krafty Guest.  This week's challenge is for Easter/Spring Krafty Kreations! And if you thought it couldn’t get any better than playing with your Krafty Stash, think again as there is the chance to WIN a $10 gift card to the Kraftin' Kimmie shop.

I don’t send (or make) Easter Cards so I have made a spring themed card and I’ve used ‘Lilybelle’ again…..I just love fairies:

I dug deep into my paper stash and re-discovered a much loved Echo Park paper pad that I haven’t used in a long time. It’s very aptly named Springtime and the colours are so pretty and perfect for a Spring themed card

Also the fabulously awesome Coffee Kits are available, the pre-orders sold out so quickly but Kimmie was able to get more goodies and make more kits. This is the last weekend they are available for purchase and they can be found here.

Easter Cuties – Digi Bells New Release Hop

Easter Cuties (2)

Afternoon all. Two posts in one day….go me!!!

I’m back to share the wonderful new digi image that has been released by Elisabeth Bell called Easter Cuties. This image was once available through SCACD, but was far too adorable stay hidden so Elisabeth has released it as a digi and I for one am so happy. Here is my card:

Easter Cuties (5)

I have left my card without a sentiment at the moment. I toyed with using a Happy Easter sentiment but I don’t send Easter cards so I think she will become a birthday card eventually. It’s a shame Mother’s Day has passed here in the UK as I think she would have been lovely for that occasion.

The blog hop will will run for one week and will end on Friday 3rd April at 9:00am Arizona Time (4pm for us UK ladies).

If you have stumbled upon this post and would like to join us on the hop you will find the line up below. However if you are already hopping along your next stop will be the fabulous Lynda for some more inspiration.

Anyhoo, enough waffle from me. Here is some inspiration using Sweet Nora from Whiff of Joy:

Bit of a dodgy photo on this one. I’ve managed to pick up the shimmer on her wings but the four smaller pearls look a right odd colour….I swear they match in real life!!!
