On Saturday night, my daughter had one of her little friends over for a quick playdate. The mess that resulted after just three short hours was astonishing, but some good came out of it... as I cleaned up and was putting away each of the million books that had been ripped out from the bookshelf in her room, I stumbled upon her missing Easter card!!! She had filed it away in her bookshelf! Possibly not the most obvious spot to put one's Easter card, but I guess I shall never understand exactly how DD's little brain works. She's a character to say the least!

So, after numerous weeks, I can finally share DD's Easter card. Here it is;

For this card, I limited myself to scrap patterned paper, together with an old set of Karen Foster Easter stickers, and a few other bits and bobs. I stuck the bunny sticker to the card front with foam mounting squares for a bit of extra dimension. This was only a pretty quick card as I left it until Easter night to make it, but I hope you like it all the same!!!
A couple of weeks back I made this card, but forgot to share;

It uses Cosmo Cricket Snorkel paper, brads, and lots of machine stitching. I just adore this range, as well as the Girl Friday line. I have a gazillion plans using these products... now to find the time to actually create them!

This coming Saturday (May 2nd) is National Scrapbooking Day. To celebrate, I am heading to Mum's place for a day of paper-crafting. I hope to make at least 10 cards.

I'd love to know what your plans are for the day. Leave me a comment and let me know.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

P.S. Just wanted to congratulate fellow scrapper and friend, Jolene Pienaar, on the birth of her new baby girl, Lily Anabella, who made an early arrival on the 26th of April. She is so sweet! Bets of wishes to you and your family.

Oh, I love Til's Easter card. She must have too, that's why she put it away so safely :)
Love the stitching on the Snorkel card, it looks really effective.
