Easter for my auntie

Hello there! Brrrr - isn't it chilly - that cold wind thats blowing up here could cut right through you.

 I've got another Easter card to share with you today - this one is for my Aunty Brenda and uncle Bernard.


This one is made using a Marianne die that I was lucky enough to get for Mothers Day - I got it from the Manchester show in February - I stood at this stall and watched this lady cut the top of her card in this way - well I was hooked - I'd never seen anything like this done before.It looked so easy but it wasn't so easy once I got it on mothers day - but finally I've sussed what I was doing wrong and think it will be much easier from now on. Pretty isn't it? I've teamed it up with some WOC flowers and the green diecut is a memory box one.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Hope you have a happy Sunday and thanks for dropping by. Looking forward to getting some crafting done this afternoon with my mum and this evening in my attic. Both my girls have their Jujitsu gradings today. Penny will be doing white belt and Lucy yellow belt. Fingers crossed they're okay!

Hugs
