Easter time

I am very lucky that I will be able to enjoy some family time over the Easter weekend. Everyone is coming up to us. There is no snow thank goodness, 8c and showers, that will do me just fine. Mind you today it is tipping down!
We are all looking forward to having some time to talk, laugh and enjoy some relaxation. 
I hope to get out to the garden on Monday for a little tidy up too.
At this time of the year you can almost hear the plants growing.

 It's time for my last hot cross bun of 2018....our local baker sells these and they are delicious. We are very lucky to still have a bakery which bakes for it's 2 independent shops. Everything tastes home made.
Today I am sharing another of the Easter tags made for the Easter pressies I have bought for my big and small babies.
This one uses a lovely Rubber Dance stamp I recently won. I coloured her in with watercolour pens.  The sentiment is Clearly Besotted and the dies are Tim Holtz and The Works. The background was made with distress inks and has some Tim Holtz stenciling in there too. 

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

Simon says stamp Wednesday anything goes
Studio 75 Easter
Die cuttin Divas Easter
Simon says work it Wednesday 3/3 inky techniques mine was using distress inks.
Fashionable Stamping 2/3 Springtime
Sparkle 2/3 spring is in the air
Deep Ocean Easter/spring
That's Crafty spring into action
Time out 1/3 photo inspiration I was inspired by the greens, yellows and hint of blue colours, the long stemmed foliage (I added a piece to my tag) and also the cut out pattering of the vase..I added similar stencilling.
Try it on Tuesday spring mood board I was inspired by the green foliage, yellow flowers and the blue sky.

 Have a peaceful Easter with those you love. Thanks as always for your very kind visits here and comments. I am back on Easter day; as this year it falls on 1st April, with my April DT piece for Country View Challenges. There is lots to celebrate that day!

Bye for now,

  8. Oh dear it's not the plants I can hear growing but the weeds. The birds make a terrible mess under the bird feeders. It is supposed to be sterile seed but it isn't. Wish the rain would stop and Spring finally decide to stay put. 4C here today. Enjoy Easter with your family. Hugs Mrs A.
