Happy Easter again!

Hello Lovelies! Have you had a good Easter Sunday. We did - when my car eventually decided to start - or should I say Shaun's car - I think the suspension went on mine on Good Friday!!Typical! Anyway, we had a lovely trip to my mum and dads and a fabulous dinner - thanks mum!!! We watched a Harry Potter Film in the afternoon too - we've watched a few since we got back from London - more about that soon!

Thought I'd better share the Easter card I made for my mum and dad today - infact its the only Easter card I made this year. I have been very slack! Here it is anyway - the stamp is the chocolate baroque stamp for March in their year of stamping series.

Here's the whole thing - I backed it with using a joggles mask and ripe persimmon distress ink.

I coloured the image with spectrum noir pencils.

I added the sentiment after colouring.

I would like to enter this card into allsortschallenge-easter.

Before I go here are a few more pictures - this time from our day at the Harry Potter Studios - its a fab place if you're a fan!

This was in an outside part of the studio - around the middle of the tour.

This was in the first half of the tour - close to where they have broom sticks and green screens and you can get videos made flying broomsticks!

This is a mock up of the inside of the hogwarts express.

Here's Lucy going through to platform 9 and 3/4.

We all enjoyed this day so very much!

Big huggles to you and I hope you have a great evening! Poldark is calling!
