Easter extravaganza

Happy Easter everyone. I have been busy putting together some Easter goodies for my big and small babies ;0) The big babies (youngest 26!) will find some of these in the selection for this year

You will have already seen the tag I have made for my it is attached to his Easter goodie bag.
I have also shown the other tags I have made on previous posts so my challenge project today to share is the Easter card I made for my Hb.

I started by using my lovely big tulip stamp to stamp over some hessian covered card.

Next I printed out one of my Nicecane Designs images. I used the image from this great chick sheet  and I also fussy cut out some of the butterfly twitches sheet from here. There are some perfect spring images in the web shop there.

I die cut some feathers and coloured them with my Bister

I then gathered together a few other elements and put my card together.

Here is the finished piece.
I would like to enter my card into the following fun challenges, thank you.

I can't wait to share some Nanna cuddles (and of course hugs with my big babies too ). I will let you know if my Hb's amazing lemon cake tastes as good as it looks. He loved reading your kind supportive comments.  Wishing all my blogging friends a very happy and peaceful Easter. Thanks for visiting and for taking the time to comment on all my Easter posts. It has certainly been a very creative break and I still have 3 more days off work. It would just be good if we can get some more does look quite hopeful for today.
