Easter greetings

Happy Easter everyone and I hope that the chocolate bunny has been good to you. We have been out and about for the last few days so we plan a quiet day at home and I may even get some time for some crafting. After nearly 2 weeks of wonderful sunshine the heavens have opened and it's pouring this morning. I think lots of chocolate will feature today in our house today ;0) It's certainly not a day for the garden.
Here are some photos of the surprises my dear ones are opening this morning




Our Daisy Jane is too young for chocolate yet so here is Nana's gift this year.........
a bag to match her pretty sundress and the sweetest story book...Stripey Horse.
As always all of mine get a little chick in their Easter bags, they are never too old ;0)

I would like to wish all my great blogging friends the happiest of Easter's. Have a peaceful day whether you are relaxing at home or with family.

I can't send you all a card so here is GD one I made for Ignacio of Nicecrane designs using one of his fab Easter sheets called chicks and ducklings available here 
I love his vintage sheets so much. I also used as little "seed packets" another set called Henderson's Giant flowers available here. This is one of my favourite sets.
Here are a couple of close ups;
 I made butterfly with a MS punch which I then inked with distress inks and added some gold embossing powder to and some gems for some sparkle.
I added a little vintage bird box charm from my stash which I tied with twine and also some lace to add to the vintage/shabby chic  feel.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

We do doobadoo Embellish it
Allsorts Birds and feathers
Totally Gorjuss Die cuts/punches
Polkadoodles springtime

Enjoy your long weekend however you are spending it. Thanks as always for your kind visits to me here and the comments that you take the time to leave.

For those of you who love to see my darling granddaughter Daisy...we caught up with them on Good Friday over at my parents' house. She is now 5 months old and was wearing her butterfly dress...I will leave you with a couple of pictures of my little princess busy playing.

 I bought her a new outfit which I think she approved of, a little denim skirt dungarees set...


and just look how big she is in her bath now :0)


she even peeps her feet over the top....so funny! I could eat this little sweetie, she is just adorable.

Back soon,

Bye for now,

Jane x (and Daisy waving with her feet)

  13. Hi Jane! Happy Easter to you, too! Daisy is a sweet pumkin! That look in the bath tells me that she will be very creative and excited about everything in her life! What a cute butterfly dress! 'I love your card! 'Old style' pictures are so beautiful and chickens are so cute. When I was younger I wanted to have a hen - then I couldn't and now when I could, I don't want all that mess and work they have.
    Hugs! x Teje

  18. Love the butterfly dress and the bluebells, and the chicks, and the painting of chicks.. all wonderful things to see, though I'm kind of puzzling about the bathtub. I think I'd be afraid of losing the baby in it :)

  24. Good evening, Jane! Looks like you had a lovely Easter and I hope that the Easter bunny remembered to bring you something too?! Daisy is just the cutest and looks such a character! My how they grow quickly, it doesn't seem that long since you were waiting her imminent arrival?!
    We've had an extended weekend away visiting the family up in Scotland and the weather was glorious! We stopped off in Edinburgh on the way up as it has always been somewhere I wanted to visit then spent the rest of the time around Arbroath and Montrose...I didn't want to come home!
    Love your pretty Easter card with it's vintage style! Hugs, Lisa x
