Easter wishes

Good morning to you! Its all snowy here - very cold and blustery and a proper wintery day - hope you're wrapped up where you are and nice and snug and warm!

Today I've got Lucy's Easter card to share with you - the image came from a win over at lexiscreations a couple of weeks ago - thankyou!!!!

The image is called Lillie and tulips and is on page one of the digital images from Fairy dust crafts. Super sweet. I've coloured her with promarkers and cut out using the adorning squares die from spellbinders. I've then added memory box die cut fluted vines and also used the waste to ink through with crushed olive DI to form more dies. The sun and the cloud are both sizzix dies and the sentiment is LOTV.

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

Just got a couple more piccies to show you of the papers me and my mum made on Thursday afternoon - using shaving foam and dylusion sprays.

Aren't they fab - looking forward to using them soon - I may well have to get my girls to play with this technique too - so much fun - you can find out how to do it here.

Hope you have a fab Saturday!
